HCM CITY — The 22nd Viet Nam Sai Gon Textile and Garment Industry Expo 2012 – Fabric and Garment Accessories will be held on April 11-14 at the Tan Binh Exhibition and Convention Centre in HCM City.
Local textile and garment enterprises will be able to purchase modern equipment and promote their "Made in Viet Nam" brand at the expo.
Since the 1990s, the event has been held 21 times in HCM City and Ha Noi and has become a key event for the textile and garment industry in Viet Nam.
Covering over 6,000sq.m of exhibition space, the four-day event will attract 260 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions all over the world.
This year, the number of Vietnamese enterprises and joint-venture enterprises in Viet Nam participating in this event will account for more than 30 per cent of the total exhibitors.
The exhibitors will display a range of products at more than 300 booths including raw materials and the latest technology and processing solutions for textile and garment operations. That will save production time, power and fuel.
Products include textile machinery, spinning machinery, yarn processing machinery, weaving machinery, looms, chemicals and dyes, cloth processing machinery, embroidery equipment, knitting machinery, and accessories.
Organisers said the expo would help increase the localisation rate of raw materials.
The exhibition is organised by the Viet Nam National Textile and Garment Group (VINATEX) in collaboration with the VCCI Exhibition Service Co. Ltd and Hong Kong Exhibition Services Ltd. It is expected to attract more than 15,000 visitors. — VNS
