According to Messe Frankfurt, visitors from Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, the U.S., Macau, India, Australia and the U.K. made up the top ten countries and regions.

Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK), said, “While the visitor number remained stable compared to last year, we are happy with the quality of buyers, so are our exhibitors. The textile and garment industry in Hong Kong has formed a Garment Development Committee, led by the Honourable Felix Chung – a government lawmaker, to figure out a way to further boost the garment retail and wholesale market in the city.”
