Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris


In the bustling heart of Paris, the Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris event saw a convergence of nearly 8,000 international visitors eager to engage with 1,300 exhibitors from around the globe. Held at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from 5 to 7 February 2024, this year's event boasted a boldly designed showcase that enhanced the overall experience.

Stable visitor numbers amidst industry demands

Despite the escalating demands within the fashion industry, visitor numbers remained stable, underlining the enduring appeal and significance of Texworld and Apparel Sourcing Paris. Over the course of three days, attendees had the opportunity to engage with weaving and clothing companies representing 25 countries across two levels of Hall 7.

The event witnessed an unprecedented gathering of international companies, surpassing the figures recorded in February 2019. Notably, the Euro-Mediterranean zone emerged as a key player, with the top five countries represented by France, the UK, Italy, Turkey, and Spain. This demographic composition reaffirms the pivotal role of European markets in the global fashion landscape.

Complementarity between Texworld and Apparel Sourcing Paris

For industry professionals like Agathe Coudert, a stylist for the George Rech brand, the event serves as a crucial platform for sourcing fabrics and finished products. Texworld facilitates the selection of fabrics, while Apparel Sourcing caters to the demand for intricate finished goods like knitwear and silk blouses. Exhibitors seized the opportunity to showcase their latest offerings, from innovative performance fabrics to new cotton ranges, fostering connections with a diverse array of international buyers.

Frédéric Bougeard, President of Messe Frankfurt France, emphasized the enduring significance of the European market amidst global economic fluctuations. As markets like Russia and America face uncertainties, Europe remains a strategic hub for manufacturers seeking stability and growth opportunities. The event also highlighted the trend of near sourcing, with Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Italian, and Dutch companies leveraging the platform to integrate their expertise into the sourcing plans of European buyers.

Texpertise econogy: Bridging sustainability and business

This emphasis on sustainable products underscores a broader industry shift towards eco-conscious practices. The initiative is set to play a pivotal role in future editions of the event, promoting sustainability across the textile supply chain.

Reflecting evolving market dynamics, Texworld Evolution Paris has rebranded to Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris. This shift reflects changing sourcing preferences and the expanding scope of brand offerings. The new name and dual baseline, "Weaving the future; sourcing I business I solutions," underscore the event's evolving focus on providing comprehensive solutions to industry challenges.

Upcoming edition: July 1-3, 2024

The next edition of Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris, alongside Avantex and Leatherworld, is scheduled to take place from July 1 to 3, 2024, at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. With a renewed emphasis on textiles and finished products, the event promises to offer a curated selection of products while coinciding strategically with the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, ensuring minimal overlap and maximum engagement.
