The 17th edition of Performance Days, a trade show dedicated to the market for functional fibres, fabrics, and accessories saw more than 1,800 buyers, up 39 per cent and also a new record since inception. Reasons for the increase include; top quality exhibitors, additional exhibit space and an expanded informative framework program for visitors.

There was also a 19 per cent rise in exhibitor numbers which reached 161, who came from 58 countries, as against 135 exhibitors in April 2016, who came from 44 countries.

According to the show organisers, the trade fair’s history is marked by constant growth in the numbers of visitors and exhibitors, since the concept is oriented exactly to the needs of this market, which has proven true year after year.

“In November 2016, major brand names like 3M, Invista, Nilit, Pertex, Polartec, Pontetorto, PrimaLoft, Schoeller, Sympatex, Toray, and YKK were on hand as exhibitors. Additionally, the trade fair welcomed important new players like 37.5, Lenzing, Microban, Outlast, Unifi, and Sheico,” the organisers said.

“Despite adding a new hall and the resultant increase in floor space, not all potential exhibitors could be accommodated, while the 39 per cent increase in visitors compared to the previous trade fair in April 2016 exceeded all our forecasts and expectations,” they added. (AR)
