JFW JC 2016

JFW Japan Creation is the biggest total textile fair in Japan.
With a complete renewal the year before last, the previous show relocated to the Tokyo International Forum, reputedly the most popular and attractive event hall in Japan in recent years, attracting approx. 20,000 visitors, including top branded apparel companies and designers alongside key persons from trading companies and wholesalers with leading roles in expanding mail-order sales market and textile distribution fields. The venue saw active business negotiations/exchanges in a feverish atmosphere.

The Japanese apparel industry is one of the top global markets, with the total annual turnover exceeding 10 trillion JPY (~ US$ 123 billion). However, due to the current trend, which has seen significant reductions of domestic production, Japan is dependent on imports for the majority of its supplies, while also having to face the harsh reality of a decline in domestic textile producing regions. Consequently, Japan confronts the difficulty involved in domestically procuring the necessary fabrics, with the need to establish business with leading overseas textile makers.

With all the above in mind, JFW Japan Creation will start recruiting overseas exhibitors with technical expertise, aiming to ensure the continued supply of Japanese apparel made with high creativity, sensibility and quality.

This exhibition showcases textiles with ‘high quality / high added value’ based on our original seasonal trends, featuring convergence of the top companies from the main textile-producing regions in Japan and Asia.

Be part of this high quality show as an exhibitor, to propose your top quality products and eventually extend your business opportunity !

Visitors comprising key members of leading companies (apparel/wholesalers & trading /planning companies), generating a wealth of business negotiations.
