Messe Frankfurt France has postponed the September 2020 edition of Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls & Scarves, Texworld and Texworld Denim Paris to February 1-4, 2021.
The decision was made based on a lack of information on health requirements from the authorities for major international events planned for September, as well as possible travel restrictions for international visitors.
Frédéric Bougeard, President of Messe Frankfurt France, explains, “A survey conducted among loyal textile and clothing buyers indicates that most of them are not yet ready to travel. Serious consideration of all these issues and the lack of guarantees that this major event can be organized under good conditions has forced us to take this decision. A difficult decision, but one that is responsible to our visitors, exhibitors and partners.”
Despite these exceptional circumstances, Messe Frankfurt’s trade fairs continue to occupy a key position in the sourcing strategies of European buyers for textiles and apparel, leather, alternative materials and fashion accessories.
The team has already started working on various initiatives in preparation for the February 2021 edition. “Our major international partners have renewed their confidence in us by confirming their presence from February 1st to 4th.”
From September onwards, Messe Frankfurt France will be offering several digital solutions to connect suppliers to buyers and to showcase their knowhow and production capacities, which are the strength and originality of Messe Frankfurt France trade fairs.
