Messe Frankfurt France providing digital platform from Sep

July 08, 2020 - France

To meet the needs fashion industry, the organiser of international textile fairs Messe Frankfurt France and Foursource, a specialist in digital textile sourcing solutions, have decided to propose a digital platform in the colours of The Fairyland for Fashion fairs: Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls&Scarves, Texworld and Texworld Denim Paris.
This platform will enable exhibitors from Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows - textile and clothing manufacturers, brands, accessory manufacturers, etc to present their collections and their know-how to international buyers through a complete digital networking solution: virtual showroom, matchmaking, definition of needs, etc. Buyers also profit from a specific section to define their requests and build their collection based on selection criteria designed for the textile world: country, minimum quantities, type of service, certificates, etc.
With the 15,000 visitors of Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows and the 15,000 professionals already registered on the online sourcing platform, nearly 30,000 textile and clothing professionals will be able to benefit from this tool. This solution, which will be available from September 1, 2020 on the trade fair websites, will be offered exclusively and for a renewable period of 6 months to exhibitors at the February edition (February 1-4, 2021) of the Paris trade fairs.
It will enable a working relationship to be maintained between buyers and manufacturers and will support them in their projects between two editions of the Messe Frankfurt France trade fairs.
As a partner of Messe Frankfurt France, Foursource has been developing since 2016 global textile sourcing databases enriched with algorithms specially designed to facilitate relations between buyers and manufacturers.
"With this new partnership, Messe Frankfurt France is giving priority to textile expertise and quality contacts. These new access points will help to maximise opportunities between buyers and exhibitors at the next edition of our textile trade shows,” Frédéric Bougeard, president of Messe Frankfurt France, said in a press release.
