Jan 10, 2017
The 40th Texworld Paris show begins February 6-9, 2017 with 730 exhibitors, with this number showing an increase, particularly due to the return of previous exhibitors, who missed several recent shows. Turkey, with 87 exhibitors, remains the second most represented country after China, followed by South Korea with 71 exhibitors and India with 53 exhibitors.
Taiwan with 26 and Pakistan with 19 bring up the rear of the top five exhibiting countries. In addition the 2017 edition will also see companies participating from new countries.
Elite, a segment dedicated to customised solutions will see 21 exhibitors, a majority of whom played a key role in setting up this zone, for specialist offers that are adapted for European markets.
Texworld will also host the Frankfurt Style Award, an international fashion competition to promote young designers. There will also be a series of lectures discussing the latest developments in the sector, catwalk shows and the Trends Forum.
Meanwhile, fashion trade show Avantex Paris will also run simulataneously, promising a wealth of new developments and insights for the future of fashion. Back in July 2016, the Messe Frankfurt France event organiser said the February 2017 edition will indeed change skin and broaden its horizons, becoming a "marketplace" and a "living space".
The exhibition will be divided in to various zones such Materials and Components, Garments and Accessories, Prototype Studio, and Smart Retail, and aims to provide a pioneering offer from raw material to sales for each segment.
