Belgian show debut attracts internationals

New Belgian textile fair, Decosit, which brought together 16 textile producers in Brussels Expo at the beginning of September in the wake of the MoOD exhibition's cancellation, reports a successful first edition.

Organised by the Belgian textile federation (Fedustria), the two-day fair attracted some 300 visitors.

“Exhibitors and visitors were very satisfied with the results”, says Kris Vermoesen, Fedustria‘s product manager (textiles), who set up the event in a very short timeframe. “Above all, Decosit triggers international contacts. Visitors came from countries such as the UK, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Poland and Germany. We were delighted that almost 70% of those visiting Brussels came from abroad.”

Vermoesen believes that this confirms the need for a high-quality trade Belgian textiles fair in the autumn.

Fedustria states that the show will return to Brussels on 8-9th September 2020, will be larger, and will again feature a place for designers. Fedustria is working with a new partner to help deliver even better results next year (ore info to follow shortly).
