SaigonTex/SaigonFabric 2020 is postponed and the trade fair will now be combined with SaigonTex/SaigonFabric 2021, on April 7-10, 2021, the show organisers said on the fair website. The decision has been taken in view of the Vietnamese government continuing with the 14-day quarantine policy for foreigners entering the country, the organisers said.

With the COVID-19 situation under control in Vietnam, the domestic textile and garment industry has resumed normal operations and factories are eager to import machinery, fabrics and accessories, said joint organisers Vietnam National Textile & Garment Group (Vinatex), Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), and VCCI Exhibition Service Co Ltd.

The organisers have recommended foreign companies to exhibit in HanoiTex/HanoiFabric, which is scheduled for December 17-19, 2020. "Labour and production costs in Hanoi are lower than South Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City. Also, the north has the logistical-support bonus of a fast land-border connection with Southern China. The border control of Vietnam will be probably eased by that time," the organisers said.

The Vietnam Saigon Fabric & Garment Accessories Expo is held concurrently with the Vietnam Textile & Garment Industry Expo—the biggest and the most influential event in the textile and garment industry of Vietnam. These 2 expos are aimed to provide a one-stop market for all buyers in Vietnam and the neighbouring countries.

The next concurrent event will be held from April 7-10, 2021 at SECC, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
