Texworld Paris celebrates 25 years

Anniversary edition will take place this summer from 3 to 5 July 2023 at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre.

For the first time, Texworld Paris will be held downtown Paris, where 1300 exhibitors from some twenty countries have already confirmed their presence. More services, easier access to the heart of Paris, the fashion capital, and finally a return to its pre-crisis level - the July edition of Texworld Evolution Paris will be in many ways a special get-together for buyers and exhibitors.

This summer the trade fair for the fashion industry will once again bring together all the Texworld Evolution Paris components (Texworld, Texworld Denim, Apparel Sourcing, Avantex and Leatherworld Paris). The exhibition is also set to be the largest event since the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, with more than 1300 manufacturers expected in Hall 1 of the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre, representing a 40% increase in participation compared to last February. Chinese manufacturers are almost back to their pre-crisis level, with the number of exhibitors doubling at Apparel Sourcing Paris and increasing very strongly at Texworld Paris.

Manufacturers from India, Turkey, Korea and Taiwan have confirmed their attendance. This anticipation is explained by the very good results of the winter session and the desire of exhibitors to maintain close contact with the market.

25 years: An extraordinary session

The celebration of the 25th anniversary of Texworld Paris will be an opportunity to offer visitors special events, entertainment, but also innovative services and networking. The T-Club area will strengthen its business-oriented services to exhibitors and visitors. This will also be an opportunity for Avantex Paris to reinvent itself and broaden its offer around a Hub dedicated to innovative solutions and companies: performance textiles, solutions for a more sustainable fashion and Web3 players will be present at Porte de Versailles.

Strategic meeting point for the fashion industry

This new configuration, both spatial and temporal, will make it possible to offer visitors two days in common with Curve and Interfilière Paris (organised by WSN Développement) the meeting place for committed professionals from the lingerie, loungewear, swimwear and activewear community, which will be held from 2 to 4 July in Hall 5. The combination will offer an expanded fashion platform and will also lead to shared news and promotion.

Avantex Fashion Pitch

Organised as part of the Avantex Paris show within Texworld Evolution Paris, the Avantex Fashion Pitch awards, each year, the best innovative fashion and textile projects. The candidates will present their work in the form of a 5-minute pitch on Monday 3 July in front of a jury of industry experts.

Providing maximum convenience for visitors, Apparel Sourcing and Texworld Paris belong to the cluster of related trade fairs organised by Messe Frankfurt France (alongside Avantex which takes place only once a year during July session), held in one and the same location, on the same dates and where entry is free upon presentation of professional credentials.
