Medellin Expands Textile Congresses in Alliance with German Trade Group

Medellin-based international textile/fashion trade group Inexmoda announced January 8 a new alliance deal with Germany’s Messe Frankfurt for the April 27-29, 2021 debut of the “Heimtextil” trade fair at Medellin’s Plaza Mayor convention center.

“Heimtextil is the most important world event in the industry and the largest international trade fair for the textile sector, held since 50 years ago in Frankfurt,” according to Inexmoda.

“Trends and innovations for the most attractive categories of the sector will be shown [at the 2021 fair], such as clothing, ‘smart’ bedroom fare, bathroom fashions, carpets and rugs, wall decorations, decorative fabrics, ‘smart’ textiles and textiles for the hospital sector.

“Heimtextil Colombia expects to receive more than 100 exhibitors from countries including Portugal, Spain, Colombia, Italy, Turkey and France, as well as visitors from the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Colombia, among others.”

“With Heimtextil Colombia we are expanding our portfolio of trade fairs to a region that is currently doing very well in terms of tourism and hospitality and, therefore, offers great possibilities for business in this sector,” added Olaf Schmidt, vice president of textiles for Hemtextil.

“With Inexmoda we are happy to have a strong partner on our side that organizes trade fairs with great success in Latin America in the fashion sector,” Schmidt added.
