Europe currently imports nearly half of world's entire clothing production. With Asia being the the major world supplier of garments today (accounting for 32 percent), the Berlin-based trade show hopes to bring major manufacturing players to one location, making it simpler for European buyers to network.

As it stands, China is the leading world producer and supplier of clothing. Just six countries -- China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India -- account for 80% of Asia's apparel exports to Europe, Americas and Japan.

According to event organisers, over 300 companies are expected to participate, particularly from Hong Kong and China, as well as the other major apparel export producing countries such Bangladesh, Pakistan and India. On offer will be finished garments, contract manufacturing and private label development.

Over 1800 trade professionals are expected to attend, said the organisers in a statement.

Asia Apparel Expo 2017 will take place at Messe Berlin, Germany, February 14-16, 2017.
