60 contract manufacturers @ Texprocess Source it!

The response to Texprocess Source it! has been very good: over 60 contract manufacturers have signed up to make presentations at the sourcing area of Texprocess, the new leading international trade fair for processing textiles and other flexible materials in Frankfurt am Main from 24 to 27 May 2011. The exhibitors are national pavilions and production companies from Egypt, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania, Lesotho, Kenya, Columbia, Mauritius, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam. The focus of the presentations will be on technical expertise and the sourcing situation in the individual countries.

For Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, this is a great success. “Particularly against the background of the upheavals taking place in the procurement markets, we offer the apparel industry access to future-oriented markets via the contract manufacturers from Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America represented at Source it!. The idea of generating synergies with a sourcing platform at a technology fair has borne fruit.”

Messe Frankfurt offers an opportunity to make optimum preparations for Source it! with an online platform called i-tex – apparel sourcing system. Before the fair, fashion companies can research into which companies are of interest to them on the internet.

To do so, they only have to register free of cost with the i-tex online portal and complete a profile outlining, inter alia, which products they want to have made, i.e., men's wear, women's wear, children's wear, sportswear, home textiles, etc. They then receive a list of companies that match their criteria. Hence, they can get in touch with the contract manufacturers concerned and make appointments with them before leaving for the fair. The contract manufacturers taking part in Source it! also create a profile for the business platform.

Texprocess Source it! will be held in Hall 6.0 and also include the Texprocess Forum with interesting lectures on the worldwide procurement situation, new technologies, sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The programme of the Texprocess Forum is being organised under the auspices of Dialog Textile Apparel Association (Dialog Textil Bekleidung – DTB) with contributions from the GermanFashion association, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation (Euratex) and the International Apparel Federation (IAF).

Texprocess from 24 to 27 May is the new leading international trade fair for processing textile and other flexible materials. There, international market leaders from all stages of the textile-processing and apparel manufacturing value chain present their innovations and high-tech solutions. The conceptual partner of Texprocess is VDMA Garment and Leather Technology.

Texprocess is aimed primarily at the apparel-manufacturing industry, as well as processors of textiles in other fields, such as the automobile, aerospace, upholstery, leather, filter manufacturing, packaging and industrial safety sectors. Therefore, Texprocess is being held concurrently with Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, from 24 to 26 May 2011. The Texprocess visitor target groups include the trade, artisans, service providers, scientists and teachers.
