The preparation for 'Preview in Seoul 2014 (PIS)' exhibition organized by the Korea Federation of Textile Industries, to be held from September 3 to 5 at the COEX Hall, has commenced. Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, the exhibition promises new experiences for exhibitors and visitors.
Korea Federation of Textile Industries (KOFOTI) has organized a strategy committee with participating exhibitors, buyers, exhibition agencies, consulting firms, and other related experts to upgrade the exhibition experience. Since its first edition in 2000, PIS has become Korea’s professional textile exhibition, and from 2005, it has been nominated as a certified international exhibition every year by the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy (MOTIE), thereby establishing its reputation as a credible source.
Shifting to a much bigger venue, this time, the organisers have fulfilled the wishes of several exhibitors, who want to display their product selection. In the global textile market, Korea’s export of textile goods has augmented. No wonder, PIS, initiated as an international textile exhibition in Korea, soon turned to be a one stop sourcing collection system of both domestic and international yarns and materials, apparel enterprises, subsidiary companies, and digital print companies. Moreover, the exhibition endeavors to become a professional source of innovative and unique fashion and textile trends.
The recent popularity of well-being lifestyle and leisure sports spread wildly in Korea, and the Korean outdoor market is estimated to be the second largest in the world. The upcoming Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics in 2018 will further intensify global interest in the Korean outdoor market. Moreover, the projected prospective growth of the Chinese market increases the possibility of success of the Premium Outdoor Section.
During the exhibition period, new technology, material, fashion, and trend related experts will conduct seminars, an outdoor fashion show, and a brand PT show as well as a variety of other events are also lined up.
