Several Thousand Visitors and the Development of the Textile Industry. The 9th Edition of Fast Textile is Behind Us

From November 21st to 23rd, 2023, Ptak Warsaw Expo became the international center for the development of the textile industry, all thanks to the 9th edition of Fast Textile, the most dynamically growing trade fair in this part of Europe.

The anticipated reduction in inflation, the gradual return of consumers to active shopping, and the revival of sales provide a positive outlook for the Polish branch of the textile industry in the coming months. The portfolio of domestic and foreign orders in 2023 has increased, contributing to the dynamism of the sector’s development. An event that recently sparked discussions about changes in the industry and its prospects was Fast Textile, whose 9th edition took place from November 21st to 23rd at Ptak Warsaw Expo.

Discussions about the future of the textile industry during Fast Textile

The international textile trade fair, Fast Textile, initiated discussions about significant changes affecting the sector. During the Textile Industry Congress, experts discussed, among other things, textile materials in footwear, including specialized footwear (for people with diabetes, sensitive feet). This lecture was delivered by Tetiana Paruzel and Joanna Kwiecień from the Center for Footwear Materials, Dyed and Food Products. Edyta Sulak from the Center for Digitization of Technology and Prototype Solutions spoke about the green and digital transformation of the textile industry, while Piotr Kantor (Department of Certification of Textile and Leather Products Textil-Cert) addressed the issue of the OEKO-TEX certificate. The conference deliberations were concluded by Anna Pinar from the Textile Center with a lecture titled “The sector of professional clothing production – methods of management and product quality in the rental system.”
The current topics, industry experts, and extensive discussions after the lectures – all these factors made Fast Textile educationally world-class.

Negotiations and Networking at Fast Textile

Fast Textile became one of the industry leaders also by focusing on extensive networking. A carefully selected group of event participants, a clientele focused on investments and seeking the most advantageous business solutions, made contract negotiations easier and more effective.

International opportunities opened up for participants. Once again, the event hosted foreign contractors, enabling Polish companies to enter new markets. The event was attended by 11,752 visitors from Poland and 1,451 visitors from abroad.

Among the exhibitors were, for example, KSM, SEMACO, Metaks, Yaman, LINEXIM, Quality Textiles, OROX, ZELAL, OrdaTekstil, KAMILENA, Lama, and Bamboo.

Thus, Fast Textile provided participants with ample opportunities to establish new business relationships, build a network of contacts, and increase competitiveness in the market.
