It was my first time at the TLTF. My overall experience was very positive with a nice welcoming atmosphere. The fair continue to be the essential domestic exhibition and the timing is very good.
The next tradeshow in London will be TEXFUSION – The London World Textile Fair – 20 / 21 March 2018.
Texfusion, with around 150 exhibitors, is the first show dedicated to international manufacturers.
The fair is a good opportunity for those companies which want to present their products in a different time of the year, more into the season than the London Textile Fair, when designers and manufacturers have a clearer idea of the production’s needs.
