The Asia Apparel Expo will take place in Berlin from February 14 to 16. Over 300 companies from Hong Kong, China, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam are expected to take part in the show. The trade fair is a professional sourcing marketplace for European companies to meet apparel manufacturers and suppliers from these eight Asian countries. The fair is organised by Hong Kong based Kenfair Exhibition Limited and managed by Comasia Limited.
It is the largest trade show in Europe where clothing professionals can meet Asian factories that offer production of apparel products for men, women and children as well as fabrics and textiles and trimmings and accessories and that are ready to meet European customers’ demands for finished garments, contract manufacturing and private label development. Asia is the world’s number one destination for apparel manufacturing and Asia Apparel Expo connects world-class Asian clothing manufacturers and fabric suppliers, providing low cost, high quality and stable product supply, to European brands, said the organiser.
The sixth edition of the three-day expo is supported by Export Promotion Bureau of Bangladesh, China Council for the Promotional of International Trade (CCPIT) Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council, CCPIT Jiangsu, CCPIT Zhejiang and Bureau of Commerce of Qingdao of China, and The Indian Silk Export Promotion Council and Federation of Indian Export Organisations of India.
Asian countries have developed highly competent, competitive and skilled manufacturing bases with continuous improvements in quality, on-time delivery, customer service, ethical and environmentally-friendly employment practices and working conditions. Six Asian countries (China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India) account for 80 per cent of Asia’s apparel exports to Europe, Americas and Japan.
