Over the years, Interstoff Asia Essential in Hong Kong has developed a highly respected sourcing platform for textile professionals with a particular focus on eco-textiles and functional fabrics. The spring edition of the fair is confirmed to showcase an impressive range of international exhibitors including country and region pavilions from Amazing Taiwan, Elite China, Premium Korea and Fine Japan presenting their latest and most cutting edge designs for three days from 18 March 2009 at the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre. Some of the particpating exhibitors include Teijin Hong Kong Ltd and Yuen Hing Cotton Co from Hong Kong, JFW Creation, Ishinco, JB (Joint Bishu) Brand, and Taiyo Sen from Japan, Sapphire Textile Mills from Pakistan.

As the industry looks for ways to take greener steps and maintain marketability amidst a complex economy, the show will continue to host a number of relevant programmes, offering educational platforms that explore the issues of sustainable development and discuss new ideas on how to cope with the market changes for fashion and textile related industries.

Hong Kong is still one of China’s leading trade partners for textile import and export right after the USA and Japan. As the challenging worldwide economic climate has demonstrated the need for cost effective means of reaching out to quality buyers, the fair’s concept will now more than ever facilitate this want. By positioning itself in the heart of South East Asia – Hong Kong, the fair continues to attract leading executives, designers and industry buyers from the South East Asian region, while delivering a well-rounded textile event to all attendees.

Sustainability continues to be a strong and relevant theme in the textile industry

Most notably, Interstoff Asia Essential will cooperate with Eco Textile News, to jointly hold a panel discussion that will offer new business ideas to textile and garment manufacturers, focusing on strategies in dealing with the current market situation. One of the open dialogues will be Can sustainability survive the global credit crunch? Meanwhile, Levi's, H&M and BASF have already confirmed to join this year’s panel discussion.

Continuing its eco theme and back by popular demand, specialists from recognised eco-textile certification bodies will return on-site to offer their services. Systain Consulting Hong Kong and The International Association Natural Textile Industry (IVN) have formed a clear and easy-to-understand picture of the eco-products on display that will help visitors get a quick overview of the eco-textiles at the spring edition of the fair.

In addition to providing an eco-textile forum, fair organiser, Messe Frankfurt is currently working on a trend forum that will reflect the Spring / Summer 2010 season textile trends.

The next edition of the show will be held from 18 – 20 March 2009 in the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. For more information, visit www.interstoff-asia.com
