Asia Apparel Expo will be held in Germany from February 24 to 26, 2016. About 250 companies are participating in the expo. Among the participating countries are: Hong Kong, China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Cyprus, Belgium and Poland.
The expo is designed to meet the demand from European customers for finished garments, contract manufacturing and private label development. The apparel products on show cover men’s, women’s and children’s wear, sportswear and work wear, fabrics and textiles, as well as trimmings and accessories from the carefully-selected factories.
For the fourth edition in February 2015, over 1,500 trade professionals attended, many of whom repeated their visits over the three days, reinforcing that the well-edited selection and variety of factories and suppliers is a convenient sourcing center for apparel buyers.
Asia Apparel Expo will continue to expand its role in providing European buyers with the opportunity to meet with potential new suppliers and learn of the most up to date sourcing and production information from Asia.
The event will feature a sustainable fashion design competition. The goal of the competition is to inspire emerging fashion designers and students from Asia and Europe to create high fashion pieces with minimal waste, utilizing zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction design techniques.
