Texbrasil invites international buyer to participate in a business agenda in Sao Paulo
From June 3 to 7, an international buyer is coming to São Paulo at the invitation of Texbrasil (Brazilian Textile and Fashion Industry Internationalization Program) – held through a partnership between the Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency) and Abit (Brazilian Textile and Apparel Industry Association). The goal is to introduce the buyer to the Inspiramais show, the biggest event for innovation in materials in Latin America, and accompanying him to business meetings with Brazilian textile companies.
Over 4 days, Colombia’s Carlos Ceballos, with C.I Textiles, is taking part in meetings at Rosset and Kalimo headquarters, in addition to meeting with representatives from Program companies showing at this edition of the event. Among these are Ecosimple, Hi Etiquetas, ITM, Innovativ, Pelican Têxtil, Sancris, Sultextil, Werner Tecidos, Estúdio Capim, Estúdio Icertain, Estúdio Nomad and Rhodia.
According to Lilian Kaddissi, São Paulo is the ideal city for this trade promotion initiative. “We have a wide range of companies in the capital, providing a variety of interesting meetings for buyers. Moreover, Inspiramais is an innovative show, with a consistently rich and educational show of materials, adding greatly to how attendees understand Brazilian textile production technologies and identity,”
She ended by talking a little about the model of the initiative. “It’s an interesting format, since it connects international buyers with our members, providing for networking and, most of the time, fostering exports.”
10 years of Inspiramais
Ceballos will also have the chance to check out a commemorative edition of the show, which is celebrating 10 years. The theme of this Inspiramais is about Zen – in an attitude that assumes that others have a conscious and respect for individuality, showing that at the core is something that benefits both companies and consumers.
The event includes not only the textile chain, but also the leather, footwear, furniture sector and jewelry chains, leading to projects in partnership with the respective trade associations during the year.
The Brazilian Textile and Fashion Industry Internationalization Program (Texbrasil) works with textile and apparel industry companies to develop strategies for success in the global market. Over nearly 20 years, it has helped around 1500 brands to enter the export market, bringing in USD 3.6 billion in business. The Program is conducted by Abit in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
