In view of the current market developments and globally changing production locations 5 to 7 September 2017 will see Munich Apparel Source open its doors in Munich for the first time. Running concurrently with Munich Fabric Start some 200 international manufacturing firms will present their range of products, process solutions and services in the field of manufacturing and sourcing in Munich.
The range is addressed to European brands and retailers seeking reliable production partners with high quality standards worldwide. The aim in particular is to present new sourcing countries and their potential, their solutions and services. Thanks to the two complementary trade fair formats this complex portfolio now enjoys a joint platform in Munich.
“Many sourcing firms today have started offering A-Z process solutions. They cover both design and the entire manufacturing process including sourcing fabrics and findings. In this respect it is logical to present these segments together in their entirety. We are in the comfortable position of being able to offer this range” says Wolfgang Klinder, Managing Director of Munich Fabric Start.
“These days fabric sourcing and manufacturing can no longer be separated from one another”, adds Klinder and highlights the added value for both visitors and exhibitors arising from two concurrent trade fairs focusing on complementary product and production sectors: “The high demands of the complex and logistically elaborate production and sourcing processes in the textile and fashion sectors necessarily require the synergy of two complementary and synchronised events like Munich Fabric Start as one of the most successful trade fairs for fabrics and additionals and the new Munich Apparel Source specialised in manufacturing and sourcing.”
Turkey’s national participation will be organized by Aegean Exporters’ Association and 14 Turkish firms will attend Munich Apparel Source fair.
