"With this new partnership, Messe Frankfurt France is giving priority to textile expertise and quality contacts. These new access points will help to maximize opportunities between buyers and exhibitors at the next edition of our textile trade shows"
This platform will enable exhibitors from Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows - textile and clothing manufacturers, brands, accessory manufacturers, etc. - to present their collections and their know-how to international buyers through a complete digital networking solution: virtual showroom, matchmaking, definition of needs, etc. Buyers also profit from a specific section to define their requests and build their collection based on selection criteria designed for the textile world: country, minimum quantities, type of service, certificates, etc.
With the 15,000 visitors of Messe Frankfurt France tradeshows and the 15,000 professionals already registered on the online sourcing platform, nearly 30,000 textile and clothing professionals will be able to benefit from this tool. Available from 1st September on the respective trade fair websites, this solution will be offered exclusively and for a renewable period of 6 months to exhibitors at the February edition (1-4 February 2021) of the Paris trade fairs. It will help to maintain a working relationship between buyers and manufacturers and support them in their projects between two editions of the Messe Frankfurt France trade fairs.
As a partner of Messe Frankfurt France, Foursource has been developing since 2016 global textile sourcing databases enriched with algorithms specially designed to facilitate relations between buyers and manufacturers.
Providing maximum convenience for visitors, Apparel Sourcing Paris, Avantex Paris, Leatherworld Paris, Shawls&Scarves Paris, Texworld Paris and Texworld Denim Paris belong to the cluster of related trade shows organised by Messe Frankfurt France, held in one and the same location, on the same dates and where entry is free upon presentation of professional credentials.
