Première Vision Paris expands focus

The Parisian edition of Première Vision will bring together 1,954 exhibiting companies (up 3 percent), from September 19 to the 21, at the Parc des Expositions in Villepinte, and is set to include a larger offering, both in terms of form and content.

Première Vision Paris

The most notable evolution is the range of resources for manufacturing sourcing. PV Manufacturing, an area dedicated to custom manufacturing, will now include "The Sourcing Connection". The area dedicated to Asia-Pacific sourcing was previously held at the same time as Première Vision Paris, but in La Villette. With about sixty exhibitors, it will strengthen the original offer of PV Manufacturing, which was dedicated to specialists from the Euro-Mediterranean basin and Indian Ocean nations, along with the 36 exhibitors in the Knitwear Solutions space. In the end, PV Manufacturing will include 245 exhibitors, including 39 newcomers.
The fabrics fair, PV Fabrics, awaits 801 exhibitors, including 44 newcomers, while next door, the area dedicated to yarns and fibers, PV Yarns, will bring together 60 companies. In addition, there are 278 exhibitors for the leather and fur trade show, PV Leather; 248 for the design and textile design trade show, PV Designs; and 322 for the trade fair for accessories and fashion and design components, PV Accessories. Of the six exhibitions, the show will again be predominantly Italian (657 exhibitors). Next are the French companies (265), Turkish (166), British (144) and Spanish (90).

Première Vision Paris will also broaden its offerings to specialists in the footwear and leather goods markets. In addition to a new Bag & Shoe Manufacturing area that will launch in the PV Leather area, and the return of the Bag & Shoe Elements space, a series of conferences will also be dedicated to these two markets. This edition will also showcase Tunisian production, while the educational space dedicated to sustainable productions, “Smart square”, will be installed in Hall 3 in a redesigned form.
On September 19, the ninth edition of the PV Awards will be held, and will this time include ten awards with the first Fashion Smart Creation Prizes. And to reward fabric and leather specialists, the jury of professionals will this time be chaired by actor and designer John Malkovich, an event regular.
