This year the hall layout will make it easier to navigate around the fairground. All international exhibitors will be located on level 2 including in the International Halls (5.2 & 6.2), Beyond Denim (hall 7.2) and Accessories Vision (hall 4.2) – the latter two shared with domestic exhibitors. The International Halls will host overseas exhibitors covering a diverse selection of quality products from around the globe, and include various pavilions and product zones to streamline buyers’ sourcing experiences.
International highlights of the fair include SalonEurope featuring Italy’s Milano Unica Pavilion, France Pavilion, Germany Pavilion and numerous exhibitors from Belgium, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and elsewhere, which will gather an impressive range of premium European-made fabrics and accessories. Asian Pavilions from Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand will expand the sourcing options on offer.
Industry leaders and organisations including DuPont, Hyosung, Invista, Korea Textile Trade Association (KTTA), Lenzing and Oeko-Tex will organise Group Pavilions to feature their worldwide partner mills and members. There will also be six product zones to accommodate current market demands. All About Sustainability, Functional Lab, Premium Wool Zone and Verve for Design in hall 6.2, Accessories Vision (hall 4.2) and Beyond Denim (hall 7.2) will gather the foremost suppliers from those product sectors.
Meanwhile, apart from denim, accessories and one of the two ladieswear fabrics halls on level 2, all domestic exhibitors can be found on level 1, and will be categorised by product end-use such as casual wear, functional and sportswear, ladieswear, lingerie and swimwear, shirting as well as suiting.
"The whole industry knows Intertextile as a fair where you can find everything you’re looking for given its size and product range, but look a little closer and it’s clear that the fair has become much more than that in recent years. It is also a hub for the latest fashion, particularly the trendy options available in the Japan Pavilion, the cutting-edge patterns in Verve for Design, as well as the new Chinese talents beginning to emerge, to name just a few. Being in the heart of Asia, the fair is also a focal point for fabric innovations, best evidenced in the Korea & Taiwan Pavilions, Functional Lab and Group Pavilions, as well as increasingly from Chinese exhibitors also," said Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the organiser of the fair.
Intertextile's well-attended fringe programme is the ideal way to ensure exhibitors can stand out from their competitors, both before and during the fair. This comprehensive programme includes Intertextile Directions Trend Forum envisioned by top trend forecasters from France, Italy, Japan and the US, this popular forum will reveal the Autumn/Winter 2018-19 international trends through exhibitors’ products
