ASFW 2019 themed as 'Sustainable Fashion for World Market'

Sep '19
The Africa Sourcing and Fashion Week (ASFW) will open its doors to the entire cotton, textile, apparel and fashion industry from November 9-12 at Millennium Hall, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The conference theme this time is 'Sustainable Fashion for World Market'. In four days, over 350 exhibitors will present their goods to over 5,000 international trade visitors.

ASFW is organised by Trade and Fairs Group in partnership with Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, Ethiopia Textile Development Institute (ETIDI) and Ethiopia Textile and Garment Manufacturers Association (ETGAMA). The event is endorsed by the Ethiopian Government.

World's leading trade shows Texworld, Apparel Sourcing and Texprocess exhibitions (organised by Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH) will be partnering with ASFW and take place simultaneously on the same dates as ASFW in Addis Ababa.

At Texworld Addis Ababa, manufacturers present fabrics like cotton, denim, embroidery, lace, functional fabrics, knitted fabrics, linen, hemp, prints, shirting, silk, silky aspect, wool, wool blends, etc.

Apparel Sourcing Addis Ababa is the meeting place to find the best solutions in fashion and fashion accessories sourcing in Africa. Considering the keen interest in garment manufacture at the heart of Texworld Addis Ababa, African clothing manufacturers as a whole, with the addition of fashion accessory manufacturers present their designs at Apparel Sourcing area.

Texprocess Addis Ababa is Africa's leading trade fair for the international garment-manufacturing and textile processing industry. Under the motto 'Best Technology for Sustainable Production', all major technology exhibitors present the latest machines, plants, processes and services for the processing of textile and flexible materials to trade visitors. As new industrial zones are opened on a monthly basis in various East African countries, the interest and need for new textile machines is very high.

There is no show in Africa that comes close to ASFW where Africa's sourcing strategy is discussed by high level international sourcing industry about future sourcing trends. ASFW supports selected African designers through a special promotion platform. Manufacturers are engaged in the concept to ensure production and business for the designers.

ASFW Home Expo Africa is a premier platform for the home décor and home textiles industry where exhibitors present home textiles, decor, crafts, gifts and decoration accessories to international and regional trade visitors.

At ASFW Care, the entire textile and cotton care sector is represented. Important international manufacturers and services providers present innovative products and future-oriented services.

Africa's textile and fashion industry has huge demand for the service industry, e.g specialised IT, logistics and transportation. At ASFW Service, international partners present their solutions for the textile and fashion industry. (PC)
