Trends Seminar @ Interstoff highlights 2010 S/S forecasts
Mar '09
Interstoff Asia Essential Spring 2009 will open next week from 18 – 20 March at the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre, showcasing fabrics from nearly 170 international exhibitors from 13 countries and regions including Hong Kong, Italy, Macau, Netherlands, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, the US and with featured pavilions from Amazing Taiwan, Premium Korea, Fine Japan and Elite China.

In addition to speciality themed pavilions, nearly 35 exhibitors will be showcasing their certified eco-friendly processed materials and will be given a transparent eco leaf for easy identification. Suppliers who are confirmed under Control Union Certification include Foshan East Asia, SFT Inc and Yuen Hing Cotton.

This season's show will also host a number of value added programmes that explore relevant issues affecting today's textile industry, including eco-related themes, reaffirming the fair's importance on the textile industry's trade event calendar.

Spring edition offers visitors a menu of value added programmes
“Trade shows are the most cost effective means for sourcing textiles, and as the economy continues to dwindle, Interstoff Asia Essential Spring has become a key platform for trade buyers, to not only source innovative fabrics but to learn more about the supply chain process” said Ms Wendy Wen, Director of Trade Fairs for Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

“We have worked hard this year to gather some of the world's leading industry experts, designers and manufacturers who will offer their insight, adding value to both exhibitors and visitors experience who attend this season's event.”

One of the highlights this year includes an exclusive opportunity to receive professional design and consultant services from some of Hong Kong's leading fashion designers at the Designer's Corner, including Barney Cheng, Bonita Cheung, Wines Chan, Meiyi Cheung, Michael Lau and Lucy Shih.

Organised in co-operation with the Hong Kong Fashion Designer's Association, a non-profit and self-financed organisation since 1982, the Designer's Corner will provide a competitive edge in supplying expert industry advice for brands and manufacturers at the fair.

Other highlights at the Spring 2009 edition include:
- Eco Textile Asia Panel Discussion, as co-organised with Ecotextile News, focusing on retail industry and supply chain
- Trends Seminar highlighting the 2010 Spring / Summer forecasts
- Technology Seminars jointly organised with the Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA)
- Improved Eco Labelling system

VIP buyers from around the globe attend show, reaffirming the Interstoff Asia Essential's importance in the textile industry

Equally as important will be the opportunity for attendees to meet with VIP buyers from around the globe at the fair's tailor-made business matching services.

Return buyer, Mr. Andy Lee, Fabric Manger for Next Sourcing Retail Hong Kong, attends Interstoff Asia Essential for its convenient location and timing. “The Interstoff fair is a great platform for us to source the hottest fabrics, get the latest seasonal trends and more importantly maintain our supplier relationships,” praised Mr. Lee.

Also attending the fair will be invited buyer delegations representing countries and regions, including China, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Russia, Thailand and Vietnam.
