The fifth edition of Asia Apparel Expo, taking place on February 24-26 at the Berlin Messe (Hall 2.1), is opening its doors to apparel manufacturers based outside of Asia to also exhibit at the forthcoming edition. This decision reflects both buyers- and suppliers’ demands.

Exhibiting companies come mostly from Hong Kong and China, but also other major apparel export producing countries like Bangladesh –25 clothing companies based in this country will participate-, Pakistan and India.
