F2F Sourcing Show 2020—the virtual fair being organised by Fibre2Fashion and Sponsored by Silver Line Group for the global textile-apparel industry, has become the most talked about virtual trade event in the industry. More than 150 exhibitors from over 50 countries are showcasing their products and innovations at the virtual show, being attended by 50,000+ visitors from across the globe.
Admired by leading industry players, the ongoing virtual event has garnered over 375 B2B meeting requests, more than 1,500 inquiries, and 3,500+ sample requests. The enormous response to the fair has resulted exchange of more than 10,500 business cards and over 675 video calls. With more than 1k likes and shares, the fair has received an average rating of 4.5 and above.
Exhibiting in F2F Sourcing Show gives global exposure, says Dr Gayatri Hela, founder and managing director, Reseda Lifesciences Private Limited, which is exhibiting specialty finishes for textiles at the virtual fair.
“Virtual trade show is a way to go as it allows us for a better timeline. The current F2F Sourcing Show is a 3-month window, so people can walk through at their leisure and they can scan through rather than having a time bound 2-3 days pressure,” says Ashutosh Oke, assistant vice president-Global Business Development, Garware Bestretch, one of the exhibitors at the virtual show.
Sponsor and exhibitor, Silver Composite Textile Mills Ltd, feels F2F Sourcing Show 2020 is really a good platform to showcase products to even the existing customers. “Participating in the virtual fair has been a new and a great experience for us,” says chief marketing officer Umrao Sher Singh. “Actually, all of my customers were also looking for these types of presentations only—the same way F2F has come out with this show. Right from the entrance, the virtual show doesn’t give a feel that you are on to a video, but it is as if you are actually on to the real format.”
Panel discussions and webinar sessions held as part of the virtual trade show have received over 1,500 views. No wonder then that exhibitors are demanding more of such shows from Fibre2Fashion, the organiser of F2F Sourcing Show 2020.
