HCMC – Messe Frankfurt, a global trade fair organizer, will collaborate with the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency to organize an international trade fair in HCMC next year.

The Vietnam International Trade Fair for Apparel, Textiles, and Textile Technologies (VIATT) follows in the footsteps of their two other trade fairs, Techtextil and Texprocess in Germany.

VIATT is scheduled to take place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in HCMC’s District 7 from February 28 to March 1, 2024.

The trade fair welcomes all textile and garment companies and supply chains within the industry, anticipating over 500 exhibitors and 35,000 visitors.

In addition to VIATT, Messe Frankfurt has highlighted its two other trade fairs, Techtextil and Texprocess, slated for April 23 to 26, 2024. These events are expected to host 1,600 exhibitors from around 50 countries and territories, focusing on innovations, textile solutions, and networking opportunities.

“The sectors are undergoing a rapid process of change. Participants at Techtextil and Texprocess will have the opportunity to stay in tune with the times, showcase innovations to a global audience of experts and to find new solutions and business partners,” Olaf Schmidt, vice president Textiles & Textile Technologies, Messe Frankfurt, said at a press briefing in HCMC on November 10, 2023.

Techtextil will feature products across 12 application areas used in various industries, from automotive to fashion and medicine to construction. Visitors can explore the latest developments in fibers, yarns, nonwovens, composites, coated textiles, and technologies.

On the other hand, Texprocess serves as an international platform for exhibitors showcasing cutting-edge machinery, equipment, processes, and services for manufacturing garments, textiles, and flexible materials.

These trade fairs will promote sustainability in the industry through the concept of ‘Econogy,’ which combines ecology and economics. It involves standardizing sustainable evaluation criteria for the selection of resource-efficient products, processes, and exhibitors.
