The fourth edition of the Africa Sourcing and Fashion Week (ASFW) will be held from October 1 to 4, 2018, in Ethiopia. The global cotton, textile, apparel, leather, technology, and home decor industry, will be seen at the fair. Over 250 global manufacturers from 25 countries will showcase their products and innovations to over 4,000 trade professionals.

ASFW 2018 is not only a platform for manufacturers from the East African region but for manufacturers from the entire African continent. For the first time at ASFW, over 12 new South African manufacturers of leather products will present their expertise and products to international fashion brands and buyers. Launched at ASFW in 2017, the unique Walk For Business project will connect more than 25 high-end African designers from South, West, and East Africa with international buyers and fashion brands for future collaboration.

Known as Africa’s only trade show for technology, ASFW offers a huge platform for famous machines for production of clothing, textiles as well as dyeing and finishing including suppliers of chemicals. ASFW consists of textile, apparel, technology, leather, footwear, and home decor and fashion design. Textile, apparel, and technology will be presented though Texworld Addis Abeba, Apparel Sourcing Addis Abeba, and Texprocess Addis Abeba.

The theme of fourth ASFW conference will be ‘Sustainability in Production’ and ‘Transformation in Technology’. There will be a special conference on ‘Continental Free Trade in Africa’. In addition, an investment panel will highlight investment opportunities in Mauritius, Madagascar, Kenya, and Ethiopia. The Government of those countries will inform about current situation and their support. ASFW is organised 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. (GK)
