YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-08-12 10:15:00 – Mumbai

International Textile Fair returns to the Dubai World Trade Centre for its second annual outing on 11th and 12th October, 2015. At a time when the global trade and apparel sector is expanding tenfold per annum, the ITF has gained prominence as an elite textile expo with an intercontinental outlook.

The ITF witnessed unprecedented success even during its first edition, attracting 5,173 visitors of 64 nationalities across five continents. The benchmark was ephemeral, as another was set in the ITF’s April edition this year; when an astounding 6,732 visitors registered for the event.

With exhibitors coming in from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia the event set an eclectic ambience. The participation of acclaimed fashion houses like Carlo Pozzi (Italy) and Bella Donna (U.A.E) stand testimony to the revered stature of the ITF.

The diplomatic presence at the fair was palpable, as H.E Bhutti Saeed Al Ghandi (Vice Chairman, DWTC) inaugurated the event. His Excellency visited a number of exhibitor stalls and expressed appreciation for the organizers and the scale of the event. The April edition saw over 100 exhibitors, highlighting the nascent yet promising mindset of the ITF.

Clarence Greens, a first-time exhibitor at the ITF, marveled, “This was our first year at a trade show. It is a wonderful platform and we need to be having it more often. The crowd has been beautiful; we had a good crowd mix. Having visitors from around the world at our stall was great.”

The media outreach is just as astounding as the fair itself, with industry stalwarts like My U.A.E Guide & Yarns and Fibers figuring among the media partners list, alongside exhibitions by Gamma Industries (Thailand) and Schaefer & Te Neues GmBH (Germany).

Rather than remain complacent after enjoying immense success, the ITF is still unwavering in its determination to expand with each event; and becoming a major influence in the U.A.E fashion scene. Dilip Nihalani, MD (ITF) explains, “At ITF, we strive to provide a professional atmosphere conducive to business and networking; and acknowledge U.A.E’s rise as the leading destination for textile industry automation.”

International Textile Fair- Dubai is UAE’s premier platform for fashion and fabrics. ITF, Dubai showcased Pre-collection Spring/Summer 2016 and Autumn/Winter 2015 highlights. With close to 150 exhibitors, the Fair aims to expand with each event become a major influence on the UAE fashion scene.

Principally a “trade only” event, ITF provides a professional and conducive atmosphere to business and networking for manufacturers, traders and designers both internationally and within the region. In response to the need for a dedicated trade exhibition in Dubai- UAE, the show has been designed as a quality event for the Fashion Fabrics Business in the UAE. ITF is attended by leading fashion and apparel buying houses from the Middle Eastern market.
