Interstoff Asia Essential - the spring edition will take place from 19 – 21 March 2014 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, offering the preeminent platform for discovering the latest fashionable, functional and eco fabrics, as well as the trends for the upcoming seasons through fashion show, trend forum and seminars.
"This is the first time I have visited the fair and attended the seminar. I joined the seminar because I hoped to know more about the trends, and it was helpful in that sense. I got to know about the design trends here, as well as the latest technology developments."
Shelley Hu, Senior Marketing Representative, Target Sourcing Services, Taiwan
"I have been to the fair many times, and there are always some attractive things here. This year, for example, I like the Research and Education Zone because some new technologies were introduced. The fair also helps me understand the market."
Eraldo Spinacci, Product Development Manager, Sixty Asia Investments Limited, Hong Kong
"We came to the fair to do sourcing and maintain relationships with our old suppliers. We have already met some good suppliers from Taiwan, Korea and Japan at the fair. I like this fair because it is a good channel for us to explore new fabrics and new collections of accessory products."
Shiwang Sui, Representative from Tai Kwong Textiles Trading Co Ltd, Hong Kong
"This is the first time I enrolled in the Business Matching Programme and the service is very good indeed. I could find my targeted suppliers with arrangements made in advance. I can really meet some good-quality suppliers for the US market at the fair and I am satisfied with it overall."
Lisa Wong, Merchandiser, Leaching Group Hong Kong Ltd, Hong Kong
"This is the first time I’ve been to this fair. I’ve found some suitable things so far and I think the range here is very good as you can find everything in the mid-range to high-end segments. There are a lot of functional fabrics and natural fibre products on offer, and the fair is well organised so you can quickly find what you are looking for."
Kerstin Guhlmann, Director, Indochina Sources, Vietnam
"I'm definitely satisfied with the range the fair has on offer and the quality is good this year. You can find mid- to high-quality fabrics at low-end and mid-range prices here. I come to this fair because it has a bit of everything from Asia. I especially like the functional fabrics from Taiwan, as well as the wide range of womenswear fabrics. I believe we would be able to find whatever fabrics we have in our minds here."
