Carlos Eduardo Botero, CEO of Institute for Exports and Fashion (INEXMODA) of Colombia, said that together with Mexico, Peru and Chile, Colombia is working on a deal that positions these countries as a trading bloc in the global market, by leveraging competitive advantages of each of the member nations and approaching markets with existing free trade agreements (FTAs).

The Colombiatex of the Americas fair would provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs to go Beyond Limits as it is time to act, to seek alternatives to reach consumers in surprising ways and find newer ways to appeal to consumers, in order to make their experience of shopping much more than just choosing and paying. It is giving users a voice, listening to them and allowing them to participate in the construction of the brand to meet the objectives proposed, stated Carlos Eduardo Botero Hoyos, Executive President of Inexmoda, in referring to the call Inexmoda is making to the industry in 2014.

In this urban plaza, fashion in an unstructured form will show the many uses of textiles and how they transcend to the final product, through stagings held throughout the day. Under the concept Beyond Limits, Inexmoda is inviting Fashion System entrepreneurs to participate in Colombiatex of the Americas 2014 and share their knowledge, to join forces, to be amazed and to act.
