The multi-hued world of apparel, textiles and footwear is all set to mesmerise audiences once again at the International Apparel and Textile Fair (IATF). Heralded as the UAE's most exclusive and sought-after sourcing fair within this industry, IATF will enter its ninth edition in 2019.

Over the years, the show has evolved into a leading forum for buyers in the MENA region to source the best fabrics, home textiles, accessories, prints and machineries from international manufacturers and mills. This world-class event brings together leading buying houses from across the globe and attracts exhibitors mainly from Europe, India, China, Indonesia, Japan and Turkey. Considering that the UAE currently ranks third in terms of textile and apparel imports - IATF becomes more pertinent than ever before, for those in the industry.

Across three exciting days, attendees will be able to explore a plethora of exhibits and collections, while benefiting from networking opportunities with the best in the global textile industry. As a trade-only event, IATF will provide manufacturers with an unmatched platform to showcase their products to the most influential buyers and designers in the UAE. Visitors can also look forward to the interactive Speakers Forum, featuring high profile industry experts from the regional and international fashion scene. In addition to establishing business contacts, the event will provide visitors and exhibitors valuable insights into the latest trends and industry innovations.

In its highly talked-about 2018 edition, the show witnessed a turnout of 15,000 visitors and 600 exhibitors showcasing a colourful palette of fabrics, haute couture labels, exquisite accessories and stunning creations from renowned design studios. A melange of the who's who of the industry and a stellar line-up of exhibitors ensured that the show was a sensorial and inspiring experience for all.
