It's an opportunity for show organiser, Messe Frankfurt, to strengthen its overall denim offering by 35%.

China and Hong Kong will again represent the largest foreign contingent with South Korea, Thailand and Indonesia having a strong show presence this season too. The Embroidery-Lace space has increased in size this time round, as has Silk, Drapery & Tailoring and Jacquard.
As for the clothes, Apparel Sourcing will attract 300 exhibitors (up 10%), welcoming a dozen or so countries including Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, as well as China.
