On 25-27 November the 2nd edition of Fast Textile International Textile Fair – the biggest festival of the textile industry in Poland – was held in Ptak Fashion City. The event attracted over 250 exhibitors from all world and 22,500 visitors.
The Fair was an unquestionable success, both in organisation and business. The most important manufacturers from all world brought their rich offer of fabrics and accessories to the modern Expo Hall of Ptak Fashion City. The Hall was divided into special trade zones: fabrics, accessories, machinery, yarn and services. Companies from Turkey and Taiwan enjoyed particular popularity – special pavilions with Turkish and Taiwanese products were set up for the time of the Fair. The perfect commercial space of the Expo Hall allowed to make hundreds new deals.
Moreover, Fast Textile saw the presentation of latest trends for the spring/summer 2016 season. In the specially created Trend Zone guests could find out about latest fabrics, materials, colours and technologies used in the fashion industry.
In order to meet the needs of the Polish clothing sector, the organisers of Fast Textile took care of entrepreneurs, students and everyone involved in the industry. Numerous lectures led by experts enjoyed great popularity. Thanks to cooperation with the Faculty of Organisation and Management of Łódź University of Technology, the Fair hosted lecturers with specialist workshops. It was a unique opportunity to ask questions to a group of experts and get the know-how of the textile business.
On the Fair we also hosted schools, such as the Agricultural Education School Complex in Wolbórz, where since 2016 – thanks to the cooperation with Ptak Fashion City – youth will be attending new specialisations connected to the fashion industry. Pupils had a chance of active trade learning. Classes, along with their teachers, took part in workshops, found out about clothing manufacture and took a sneak peek into the reality of the textile industry.
We value innovation and quality in Ptak Fashion City. The best exhibitors of the Fair were awarded Fast Textile Diamonds, prestigious awards for creativity and input into the clothing industry. Fast Textile Diamonds were given in following categories:
