Debut of sustainability event 'Planet Textiles'
14
Dec '09
Interstoff Asia Essential will return for three days from 17 March 2010 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. The spring edition will feature a preview of the latest fashion, functional and eco-textiles from around 200 apparel fabrics and textile related suppliers. In addition, the business platform is confirmed to take place alongside the debut conference, 'Planet Textiles' co-organised by Ecotextile News, Messe Frankfurt and the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) and will focus on sustainability.

While the textile industry continues to look for ways to take greener steps and maintain marketability amidst strong competition, attendees at Interstoff Asia Essential will benefit from the uniqueness of participating in two industry events featuring eco-friendly ideas and concepts. Besides reaching out to quality buyers, suppliers can also showcase their latest products while at the same time listen to sustainable presentations and even join in the discussions.

“Through its launch at Interstoff Asia Essential, Planet Textiles will take sustainability right to the heart of the textile manufacturing community in Asia. Leading retailers, brands and innovative textile companies will not only inform delegates about their latest eco-textile initiatives, but explain why this is not only good for the environment - but is absolutely essential for businesses going forward," commented John Mowbray, Editor for Ecotextile News.

The debut conference will feature:
- Keynote presentations on corporate social responsibility and sustainability
- Case studies from manufacturers and retailers
- Networking opportunities for industry professionals
