The textile industry will be making headlines on Sunday, October 11th, as the second edition of the International Textile Fair-Dubai (ITF) kicks off. The two-day fair will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Ahmed Abdul Salam Kazim, Director of Strategy & Corporate Excellence at Dubai Customs, said much of the importance the ITF gains is credited to Dubai’s global status as a prominent hub for textile and apparel trade in the Middle East, Africa and nearby markets. A wide range of brands and products that meet all tastes and needs is made available at competitive prices, thanks to a 24/7 network of aviation lines connecting Dubai to the world.
Kazim added, “Dubai textile trade in the first half of 2015 hit AED 7.5 billion, with AED 4.8 billion in imports, AED 2.2 billion in re-exports and AED 508 million in exports.”
The Director of Client Management at Dubai Customs Edris Behzad stated, “Dubai Customs strives to enhance ties with textile traders. To that end, the International Textile Fair- Dubai is the place to be, as it attracts 200 exhibitors, mainly from Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Turkey and various traders from the local market.”
“The ITF will include a stand to introduce both exhibitors and visitors to the services offered by Dubai Customs to various business sectors and the regular sector-specific initiatives it tailors,” Behzad added.
After the huge success of its maiden edition, the International Textile Fair (ITF) is set to return to Dubai for its second season on 11th & 12th October 2015 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. This season, the International Textile Fair, which is UAE’s exclusive trade show for fashion and textile, is creating an inviting atmosphere that will inspire both exhibitors and visitors attending the fair.
