This fifteenth edition promises to be dense and full of discoveries, thanks to an increased and well anticipated participation of many nations:
“We haven’t completely finalized marketing of the shows and they are already booked out. We can expect a slight increase of more or less 5% compared to last September. I also note that our offering will include countries with very strong growth such as Cambodia and Vietnam; among the top 3 of suppliers to Europe, which are recording strong growth in terms of value with +8.5% and +4.9% respectively (according to Textile Outlook International). Pakistan and India remain unquestionable, steady players, and not forgetting China, which is still the primary supplier to Europe” remarks Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.
