Apparel Manufacturing Trade Shows
Which apparel manufacturing trade shows are you interested in? Why do you go or why are you thinking about going?
They are a great place to network and talk directly to factories. I go to meet buyers and answer their questions about apparel manufacturing in Vietnam.
Let's schedule an appointment to chat and I will give you advice about textile trade shows around the world.
Why did you search for apparel manufacturing trade shows?
There are factories from China, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, USA, Africa and Europe. You can meet them all!
Factories will show you samples and give you prices for the styles they have produced in the past. If you bring your samples they can give you an approximate manufacturing price for your current collection.
You can ask them questions about shipping, trim sourcing, fabric compositions, packaging options, design limitations….
You can meet people like me and get insider information about producing in Asia.
Apparel Trade Shows in Vietnam
VTG stands for Vietnam Textile and Garment. It is not like Chinese apparel trade shows, like Canton Fair. The reason I say that it is not like the Canton fair is because very few sewing factories exhibit at VTG or Saigontex.
Who does exhibit at the garment trade shows in Vietnam? Most of the exhibitors are selling machines like sewing machines, screen-printing machines or knitting machines. There is a large section of fabric manufacturers but they are mostly from China and Taiwan. There are accessory suppliers that make things like poly bags and silica gel pouches. There are trim suppliers that showcase their buttons, lace and iron-ons. You will also see Vietnamese agents representing foreign manufacturers. You won't see rows and rows of sewing factories.
