Global Sources’ fashion fairs host 1,300 booths

News this week: NASDAQ-listed B2B media company, Global Sources, recently hosted 1,300 exhibitor booths at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE). The organiser’s co-located events included China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories, Garments & Textiles and Underwear & Swimwear, as well as India Sourcing Fair: Garments & Accessories.

The four-day trade show was held from 27th to 30th October. Global Sources reported the participation of many high-profile buyers this year, including representatives of Bestseller Fashion Group, Carrefour, Folli Follie, Giorgio Armani, Landmark Group, Le Chateau, Li & Fung, Nitori, Ralph Lauren, Samsonite, Sears, Triumph, Target Sourcing, Tesco, Wiley Accessories and Woolworths.

Tommy Wong, president of Global Sources Exhibitions, was quoted saying, “Buyers love the ease of sourcing many product lines under one roof. We have Asia’s largest selection of scarves, a new sportswear pavilion and fast growth in our finished-garment and fabric lines. Some lines have double-digit growth since our show last October. This mirrors the robust state of the global apparel industry which is expected to be worth more than US$1,560 billion by 2017.”
