Messe Frankfurt France is providing a digital platform from September 2020 to support its visitors and exhibitors.
Messe Frankfurt is the organiser of apparel industry events like Apparel Sourcing Paris, Avantex Paris, Leatherworld Paris, Shawls&Scarves Paris, Texworld Paris and Texworld Denim Paris. It claims that the new tool will be the culmination of a partnership with the world’s largest online textile and clothing sourcing network, Foursource – a specialist in digital textile sourcing solutions.
This solution, which will be available from 1 September 2020 on the trade fair websites, is available for a renewable period of 6 months to exhibitors at the February edition (1-4 February 2021) of the Paris trade fairs.
Through this platform, exhibitors from Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows can present their collections and their know-how to international buyers. It is a complete digital networking solution having facilities like virtual showroom, matchmaking, definition of needs, among others.
Buyers also benefit from a specific section to define their requests and build their collections based on selection criteria designed for the textile world: country, minimum quantities, type of service and certificates, etc.
So far, around 15,000 visitors of Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows and 15,000 other stakeholders of the industry have registered on the online sourcing platform, and nearly 30,000 textile and clothing professionals will be able to benefit from this tool.
