News this week: Last week, NASDAQ-listed Global Sources opened its co-located fashion trade shows which featured 1,200 exhibitor booths at AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) in Hong Kong.
The shows include the China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories, Garments & Textiles, Underwear & Swimwear and India Sourcing Fair: Garments & Accessories.
The four-day show ran from 27th to 30th April, and attracted major buyers including Adidas, Benetton, Cotton On, Esprit, Gap, Lafuma, Marks & Spencer, Quiksilver, and Tesco. Other sub-events featured at the show also include a fashion show, conference programme, and Global Sources’ private sourcing events.
Tommy Wong, president of Global Sources Exhibitions, said, “Among the 1,200 booths at this year’s shows, we have seen growth in several key categories. The Garments & Textiles show has grown by 28% year on year. The scarves & shawls and fashion bags pavilions under the Fashion Accessories show also achieved double-digit growth. These numbers validate suppliers’ recognition of our shows as a key platform to exhibit their products to overseas buyers.”
