Taiwanese companies that attended a fashion trade exhibition in Las Vegas are expected to obtain about $5 million worth of orders, the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) said. As per TTF, 16 textile exporters from Taiwan displayed readymade clothing, hats, socks and other accessories to potential foreign buyers at the Las Vegas Magic Show 2013 from August 18-21, a private sector group. High performance fabric supplier AGT International, ladies woven apparel maker Caribbean Industrial, and sports socks exporter Danken Enterprise were among the exhibitors at the Taiwan pavilion, the group said.
Under the theme ‘Think Taiwan for Textiles,’ the pavilion attracted many international brands such as Adidas, bebe, Marubeni America Corp, JLux Concepts, and Beachbody. These international brands held discussions with the Taiwanese companies and are likely to place at least S$5 million worth of orders for Taiwan-made products, the TTF said.
Yang Hsiao-chin, a section chief at the TTF said the federation is determined to offer local manufacturers the necessary assistance to set up a distribution network in US cities, particularly in Los Angeles as it is a gateway to the huge New York market and Latin America. The TTF is planning to hold similar trade shows and meetings in Indonesia and Vietnam in early November in a bid to help local exporters penetrate the global market, said Chin.
