The International Sourcing Expo Australia will host nearly 700 textile, apparel and footwear manufacturers and agents from 16 countries from November 20. The trade-only show will offer fashion buyers and designers the full spectrum of product and service offerings from off-the-shelf clothing through to made-to-order pieces, fabric and functional textiles.

This year’s show will feature a wider range of clothing and footwear than previously seen in Melbourne, organiser Marie Kinsella said. The expo will attract sourcing managers for Australia’s large fashion retailers, niche fashion brands, online outlets and designers. Exhibitors will be drawn from India, China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Fiji, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

"Alongside all the fashion staples like jeans, active wear and t-shirts, International Sourcing Expo exhibitors surprised Sydney with more upmarket fashion last year," Kinsella said.

The three-day expo will be hosted in association with Euromonitor International, the Australian Retailers Association, Federation of Indian Export Organisations, Australian Fashion Council and the Vietnam Textile & Apparel Association.

"Personally meeting so many reputable partners just wouldn’t be possible any other way, even if you were prepared to spend months overseas living out of a suitcase. It’s reassuring for Expo visitors that most exhibitors participate under the auspices of governments or national trade associations, too. In fact, several trade commissions will be among the exhibitors and can offer visitors a rare insight into how best to do business with their countries," added Kinsella.

"The Expo is recognised as a unique sourcing event for members of Australia’s fashion trade but it’s also a fantastic networking event that gives locals an opportunity to rub shoulders with global leaders in the industry," she concluded.

Experts from partner organisations will be among the presenters for the popular global sourcing seminars slated for the expo, offering valuable advice on how to get the most from relationships with international textile, footwear and fashion suppliers. (RR)
