The July edition of The London Textile Fair closed the doors with very positive results. The exhibiting space is at capacity, hosting around 475 exhibitors with more than 600 collections. Enthusiastic response from the British market, with 5270 visitors through the doors in 2 days.
The uncertain industry situation seems to stay outside the Business Design Centre for the moment. The atmosphere was buzzing as usual this July, and all exhibitors worked well during the show. We expect a fully booked edition for January 2019 which will present Spring Summer 2020 pre-collections and current season highlights. The registrations for the next edition are now open, and while the bookings are coming through we have already a waiting list of 30 new companies trying to get in from previous years.
Leading presence from Italy and Turkey within the fashion fabrics hall, covering together more than the 50% of the exhibiting space, followed by United Kingdom (18%), France (12%), Portugal (7%) and Spain (5%).
