Visitors at Texworld Paris textile shows up 6.9%
Feb '17
Attendance of visitors at four textile and apparel trade shows, Apparel Sourcing; Avantex; Shawls and Scarves; and Texworld held concurrently in Paris totalled 13,559 visitors, up 6.9 per cent compared with the show held in February 2016. Buyers coming from the European Union and the Americas also grew 6 per cent over the previous edition.

Of these, attendance of French buyers grew 12 per cent, Italians 9 per cent and Spanish 3 per cent, while those from the UK remained stable, although it remains the second most represented country. Visitors from Greece rose by 13 per cent, a surprise growth for the organisers.

Visitor numbers from the US expanded 9 per cent, from Brazil and Argentina jumped 36 per cent and that of Mexico grew slower at 5 per cent, while buyers from the African continent ascended 17 per cent over the last edition.

"A truly successful show, both in terms of visitors and in the view of exhibitors, who regard it as a positive result not experienced for quite a long time. It was very obvious that the show got off to an excellent start on the very first day when the doors opened. We observed that the market was very confident, less hesitant and more assured where activity was concerned. The launch of Avantex has placed the need for innovation in the textiles industry at the heart of the market. This 4th show firmly establishes it as a preeminent reference point for fashion brands in strategy development and for textile and technology firms in the process of making investments, on all levels, from the material through to distribution, in highly technical features and in digital technology," concludes Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France.
