Interstoff Asia Essential will return for three days from Mar. 17, 2010 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. The spring edition will feature a preview of the latest fashion, functional and eco-textiles from about 200 apparel fabrics and textile related suppliers. In addition, the business platform is confirmed to take place alongside the debut conference, “Planet Textiles,” co-organized by Ecotextile News, Messe Frankfurt, and the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC), and will focus on sustainability.

While the textile industry continues to look for ways to take greener steps and maintain marketability amidst strong competition, attendees at Interstoff Asia Essential will benefit from the uniqueness of participating in two industry events featuring eco-friendly ideas and concepts. Besides reaching out to quality buyers, suppliers can also showcase their latest products while at the same time listen to sustainable presentations and even join in the discussions.
