VIATT 2024: Messe Frankfurt and VIETRADE launch comprehensive new Vietnam textile fair With combined regional, global, and industry specific expertise, the Vietnam International Trade Fair for Apparel, Textiles and Textile Technologies (VIATT) will make its debut from 28 February – 1 March 2024. Following the signing of a memorandum ofunderstanding (MOU) in late March, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (VIETRADE) wasted little time announcing the international fair for the entire textile value chain.

The extensive three-day platform will be staged at the SaigonExhibition and Convention Center (SECC), Ho Chi Minh City. With the textile trade winds bearing upon Vietnam, the organisers are confident in leveraging their various strengths to realise a show ofunprecedented scope within the industry.

Commenting on the new event, Ms Wendy Wen, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said: “With Intertextile Apparel in Shanghai a prime example, our Texpertise Network provides the ideal global framework from which to launch this diverse, comprehensive platform for the integrated textile supply chain. VIATT itself will capture the essence of Texpertise in one platform – a diverse, one-stop sourcing event for buyers across all categories, from garments, fabrics, yarns and fibres, to textile machinery, technical textiles and nonwovens, and everything in between.”

Discussing the event’s potential, Mr Le Hoang Tai, Deputy DirectorGeneral of the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (VIETRADE), said:“Vietnam is one of the world’s leading textile producers and exporters,and going from strength to strength as one of Southeast Asia’s manufacturing hubs. Our establishment has many years of experience organising trade fairs throughout Vietnam, and together with Messe Frankfurt we are excited to help international fairgoers unlock the potential of the country’s fast-growing textile market. In addition, Ho Chi Minh City’s accessibility, and Vietnam’s proximity to other leading textileproducing nations such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, China and India, make it the logical venue to host an event of this nature.” “We are pleased to add another destination to our worldwide network of textile events. VIATT in Vietnam integrates perfectly into the portfolio of Texpertise, the global textile network of Messe Frankfurt. These include for example Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texprocess in Frankfurt as well as Texworld in Paris and New York City, Intertextile and Yarn Expo in China, among many others,” explains Mr Olaf Schmidt, Vice President.
