High-quality Visitors confirm the Fair Concept

The latest MUNICH FABRIC START (3.-5. Sept. 2013) presented itself very successfully with record participation of 950 international exhibitors and thus an increase of about 10% compared to last year. The 35th edition has been a magnate for a striking number of international customers alongside the large majority of German visitors who used the early date of the fair as a kick-off into the new season and as a platform to view the latest collections for Autumn.Winter 14/15.

 At the close of the fair organisers were able to post some 18,500 trade visitors. This continues MUNICH FABRIC START’s ongoing positive trend of the past few years as a kick-off event for the new season – despite the turbulent climate affecting the clothing sector in past seasons. Relaxed optimism also prevailed at the latest trade fair – which can be attributed both to the strong domestic market and the wide range of collections from strong market stakeholders from Europe, Turkey and China.
