Texworld Evolution will next be held in hall 1 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre from Monday July 3 to Wednesday 5. This means the event will overlap for two days with international lingerie show SIL, and with Interfilière, the trade show for lingerie and beachwear sourcing, both scheduled from Sunday July 2 to Tuesday 4. Texworld Evolution did not relocate its February edition this year only because there was no availability at Porte de Versailles.

“Our goal is to always make all exhibitors accessible and visible to buyers,” said Frédéric Bougeard, president of show organiser Messe Frankfurt France, who indicated there is an increased presence of exhibitors from Turkey, India, Korea, Ghana, Ethiopia and Uzbekistan, as well as China. Despite the fact that the show’s February edition could not accommodate all the Chinese companies wishing to exhibit, it is still hosting 450 of them. “Three years of forced absence have hardened the resolve [of Chinese companies] to come and meet European buyers,” said Bougeard.

He also said that the event is keen to offer more services based on participants’ requests. “We were told that organising business meetings for buyers was not necessary. On the other hand, we understood that a venue to talk business away from the stands would be welcome,” he added. Bougeard is therefore planning to enlarge the VIP area, where buyers will be able to meet manufacturers in ad hoc spaces.

Texworld Evolution also intends to place greater emphasis on providing details of the exhibitors’ sustainability commitments. An approach triggered by the growing demand in this field, but also by the fact that many exhibitors currently display their own labels and certifications. However, Bougeard emphasised that Texworld Evolution will not engage in checking sustainability claims, since buyers are knowledgeable enough not to be misled.

The future venue change raises the question of the connection with Première Vision Paris, held in Villepinte, hence relatively close to Le Bourget, but far from Porte de Versailles. Bougeard told FashionNetwork.com
