International Apparel & Textile Fair hosted its fourth edition on 16th & 17th April 2016, followed by October 2015, April 2015 and April 2014 and now coming up with its new edition in Dubai World Trade Centre on the 14th and 15th of November, ONCE AGAIN!
The new fair came at a time when the world's textile and apparel trade reached approximately USD 13.2b (AED 48.5b) in 2011, and recorded an annual cumulative growth of 9.9% between 2006 and 2011.
The United Arab Emirates is now becoming the world's leading center for textile industry automation with the presence of about 200 apparel manufacturing companies. Accounting for about 5.5 percent of the world's annual textile and clothing sales, the UAE has today become the world's fourth largest trading center of fashion and apparel.
The Gulf countries are gradually becoming the world's leading textile manufacturing and trading centers due to good economic environment and fair trade practices, according to a recent international report. By 2018, the UAE will become the world's leading high-end textile and garment re-export center.
The two-day fair attracted textile manufacturers and designers from China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Indonesia, Italy and other countries.
UAE will become the world's leading high-end textile and garment re-export center in near future.
