Textile companies coming from Argentina, Brazil, China and Pakistan were present on April 9, 10 and 11 in Costa Salguero Center of Buenos Aires and exhibited their products and services to 7,572 professional visitors from several countries of the region.
The 5,600 sqm devoted to trends and innovations of the whole production chain positioned Emitex, once again, as the annual referent of the Argentine garment industry suppliers.
“During the exhibition, there was a good business climate. In this difficult economic context, Emitex could offer the sector an effective business platform and the boost it deserved”, said Emitex’s Project Manager, Bach. Andrea Lippi.
“We redoubled our efforts and trusted in this industry that employs thousands of Argentine people and that is a symbol of growth and innovation. Giving up would have been the easiest way out. However, we didn't think about this possibility. We decided to set out in this challenge because we know that each Emitex opens new roads”, stated the President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt Argentina, Mr. Fernando Gorbarán, when opening the exhibition.
On his part, the President of the Federation of Argentine Textile Industries, Mr. Luis Tendlarz, said that “in times in which the local market is not demanding much, export should be fostered and not punished with withholdings. I urge authorities to review this policy that discourages the export of textile products.”
The academic proposal
The 35 edition of Circuito de Tendencias had a great summoning. The updating conference in fashion industry trends, organized by the Observatorio de Tendencias de INTI Textiles (OdT), provided key information on macro and micro trends for 2020 winter season, thus allowing textile business professionals to set out new strategies for their new collections.
On their part, several specialists and exhibiting companies offered conferences on integral quality in the garment industry and technological innovations. Trends on 2020 winter trims, sublimation, camel and caprine fiber productions, were some of the subjects covered.
The spaces devoted to entities that foster projects with social impact and that contribute to the positive development of different sectors in society were received with great resonance: Proyecto Seda, that seeks to reduce poverty through the development of sustainable sericulture and Cosiendo Redes, the NGO that promotes the free education in trades related to textile industry and that gives workshops of labor insertion.
Another of the guests in this edition was Espacio MICRA of INTI, which has as aim to help production enterprises and drive new developments with Argentine natural fibers.
Besides, Emitex gave opportunities to textile designers in Design Point, where they show the creations of five studies, which design original stampings: Bárbara Perelman, Estudio Khroma, Lu Bianchi Prints, Tres Tintas and Zylda Diseño Textil.
