The 30th edition of Colombiatex de las Américas is getting ready to take over the runways of Plaza Mayor in Medellin, Colombia from January 23-25, 2018.
With the support and guidance of ProColombia, USFIA Sourcing Supporter for 2018, Colombiatex is a global stage to connect the supply side and demand side of the textile and garment sector, with lots of time for networking among entrepreneurs, buyers, and fashion fanatics. More than 550 Colombian and international exhibitors, as well as 15,800 buyers, plan to attend the event, considered the primary textile and full-package platform for top vendors across the supply chain in Latin America, including yarn, fabric, home textiles, and full-package apparel. In addition to showcasing the region’s speed to market and duty-free opportunities, the show will highlight vendors’ tech innovations and social responsibility initiatives.
“Colombia is considered a one-stop-shop where you can find all the main supply chain suppliers of the American region, but where you can also connect with finished product vendors in all categories from more than 40 countries, including guest country Brazil. It’s the hub to extend your production and distribution opportunities in the backyard of the United States with an attractive solution for sourcing with the best lead-time in the Americas,” says Sylvia Reyes, Director of Ready to Wear Department at Procolombia USA.
