Cashmere World, a vertically integrated business platform for the international cashmere trade, will take place from September, 25-26 in Hong Kong. It is a high-quality, annual meeting place for business, a catalyst for fashion trends and technology innovation, as well as a venue for the promotion of the unique qualities of cashmere.
The leading international cashmere trade fair was renamed to Cashmere World in 2010, as a result of a new partnership between CFNA and the professional fair organizer UBM, which operates 110 international events annually.
The event fosters international collaboration of cashmere professionals spanning the various sectors of this specialized industry, from raw materials to finished products, including yarns, fabrics, garments, knitted sweaters, fashion accessories, lifestyle accessories, components and accessories, processing chemicals and dyes and machinery.
The past three events in 2007, 2008 and 2010 attracted some 200 exhibitors from major cashmere supplying countries, including Afghanistan, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Switzerland and the UK, displaying the full spectrum of products and services from along the entire cashmere supply chain. About 12,000 visitors from around the world including France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, attended the event.
