“In addition to attracting top-quality suppliers, participants also noted the high calibre of buyers and the clear potential for growth at future editions,” Messe Frankfurt, the organiser said in a press release.

Held for the first time in Vietnam, the fair is dedicated to creating favourable conditions for global textiles businesses and integrate Vietnam’s industry with global textile and garment production chains.

A fashion show was also organised that featured Kilomet 109, a well-known Vietnamese fashion brand.

Under the theme of ‘Sustainable Fashion, Around the World’, the event mirrored Vietnam’s increasing attention paid to its fashion industry, as well as the global demand for sustainable products.

“VIATT stands on the shoulders of one of the world’s fastest growing economies,” Wilmet Shea, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said.

“We are delighted that our expectations were met, as a strong contingent of domestic and international buyers connected with our exhibitors,” Shea added.

“The response from key suppliers was also very encouraging, laying a solid foundation for VIATT to build upon in the coming years,” she stated.
