‘Source it’ offers insights into the world’s sourcing hot spots

The 'Source it' procurement platform at Texprocess 2013 in Frankfurt am Main from 10 to 13 June offers a comprehensive overview of the world's most important sourcing regions. For the first time this year, the focus of 'Source it' is on national presentations with selected manufacturing companies. Among the countries and regions represented will be Egypt, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Senegal, South America and Vietnam. At the individual national presentations, trade visitors can find out about the situation in the local apparel industry, technical expertise, customs regulations, infrastructure and other circumstances relevant to sourcing.

About 'Source it', Ina Stoltze, Texprocess Director, says, "'Source it' gives fashion labels an excellent opportunity to find out about the world's sourcing hot spots without having to travel to the individual countries. A sourcing platform at a technology fair is a unique service, which combines the search for innovative machinery with the search for alternative production facilities."

This year, 'Source it' is being held for the first time in Hall 5.0, in the middle of the sewing and joining product groups. Also new is the contact bourse in the Source it Lounge: visitors from the apparel industry registered there can look up which production companies or fashion labels are represented at Texprocess and make appointments with them. During the run-up to the fair, visitors and exhibitors can once again make use of the i-tex online business portal, an apparel sourcing system that will go online at the end of April. This gives sourcing decision makers from the fashion industry the chance to set up a detailed search profile that includes, for example, the products, technical expertise, standards, supplier countries, etc. required, and to obtain results specifying suitable production companies.

Around 300 exhibitors, including the international market leaders, will make presentations at Texprocess. The product spectrum ranges from design and cutting, via sewing, joining, embroidery and knitting, to finishing, textile printing, IT and logistics. Texprocess is held concurrently with Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, which runs from 11 to 13 June.
