Texfusion sees fewer footfalls

Texfusion held in London on October 31 to November 1 Nearly 165 exhibitors participated in the trade fair. Exhibitors reported fewer footfalls as market concerns continue to take their toll. The show’s modest footfall did not significantly affect all exhibitors, however, with both returning and new to the show manufacturers pleased with the turnout. There were new exhibitors from Brazil and more from Asia, particularly mainland China and Hong Kong.

The mood at the show was flatter than in previous editions. However, the exhibition’s international reach has helped boost its momentum. Future editions may have a dedicated space for Chinese exhibitors. For some buyers the show was a great source of inspiration. Indy Custom Apparel was looking for different ideas and materials to use for new products it’s trying to launch and saw a lot of interesting people. Indy Custom was particularly interested in sourcing from Pakistan and India, which this show caters to. Hong Kong-based manufacturer Novetex attended the show for the first time in a bid to break into the UK market and felt it was busier than other textile shows in Paris and Istanbul. The trade show’s visitors included Shop Direct, Topshop, Tesco, Next and Ted Baker.
