JFW JC 2020

JFW Japan Creation is the biggest total textile fair in Japan, held at Tokyo International Forum, reputedly the most popular event hall.
The previous show attracted approx. 16,811 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$ 110 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 seeks highest grade for this mature market. 
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 and fashion materials 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.
