Trade fair Texworld Evolution Paris will open its doors from February 6-8, 2023, at the Paris-Le Bourget Exhibition Centre in France. For three days, Apparel Sourcing Paris and Texworld Paris will highlight global offerings for fashion brands, from ready-to-wear to luxury. For this edition, accompanying the recovery of international business, event organiser Messe Frankfurt France anticipates a participation close to pre-crisis levels for most of the major sourcing countries.
Similar trends will be seen at Apparel Sourcing Paris, where many Chinese and Hong Kong companies have already confirmed their attendance. Pakistan has confirmed its return, as has Bangladesh, whose representatives seemed very satisfied with the activity generated last February. India is also back in force with a selection of very good companies. Sri Lanka and Mongolia renewed their presence with their exceptional know-how. For all these major sourcing countries, the trade fair should return to its pre-crisis level.
Another notable change in the strategy of Texworld Evolution Paris is that Avantex Paris and Leatherworld Paris will become annual in 2023 and will therefore only return in July 2023. An annual cycle specifically allows a better reflection of the innovations in services and materials presented at Avantex Paris, whose pace is slower than that of the fashion industry. The same goes for Leatherworld Paris, where the seasonal nature of the offer — now focused exclusively on natural leather — is not the same as that of the fabric collections. Innovation will of course remain a key feature of the Agora, since the conferences and round tables proposed during this February edition will deal with subjects and themes linked to the evolution of the textile value chain.
