HEPC initially exhibited at the expo with ten participants in 2012. With a contingent of 20 signed up for the upcoming show, they will once again be a welcome addition to International Sourcing Expo.
As the eighth largest importer of handwoven textile products from India, Australia is an attractive market for HEPC's members and the Indian handwoven sector with its wide range of exportable products, and has the potential to further improve its market presence.
"The product profile of the exhibitors under the aegis of HEPC has evolved from the initial phase of participation offering just an exclusive home textile range of products to the current participants offering the whole gamut of all textile products including an entire range of home textiles such as coir products, clothing, accessories and garments. Initially, we were exhibiting with 10 participants and this has doubled to 20 exhibitors," Dr SB Deepak Kumar, IAS, executive director, HEPC said.
"The Handloom Export Promotion Council plays an important role in International Sourcing Expo Australia by helping local buyers connect with the right Indian suppliers for sourcing hand-woven products from India. We are delighted to see their participation continue and grow year on year," Julie Holt, global exhibitions director, IEC Group Pty Ltd said.
IEC Group Pty Ltd anticipates more than 4,000 trade visitors will visit International Sourcing Expo and co-located Footwear and Leather Show Australia. Along with China Clothing Accessories Textiles Expo, which is held concurrently, more than 700 textile, apparel and footwear manufacturers and agents from 20+ countries will exhibit at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from November 12-14 2019.
International Sourcing Expo Australia, co-located with Footwear and Leather Show Australia and China Clothing Accessories Textiles Expo, is Australia's premier international sourcing show for apparel, textiles, fashion accessories, footwear and leather products.
