The importance of participating in textile fairs

Textile fairs are fertile environments for developing your business. Participating in these events, regardless of the size of your company, helps to improve your strategic vision and encourages the generation of new ideas.

Despite still being a year of uncertainty, considering the water crisis and economic recovery, the textile market in 2022 has a hopeful forecast. According to the data from the Brazilian Association of the Textile and Clothing Industry (Abit), cited by TexBrasil, the sector tends to grow 7.4% in 2022, compared to the numbers from the previous period, reaching 2 million tons produced.

As for revenue, more than 57 billion reais is expected for this new year. This amount results in an increase of 9.2% compared to the previous period.

Therefore, being aware of the scenario and updates that favor the development of your business is essential for its health and growth. And textile fairs are the best environment to acquire knowledge.

Therefore, it is possible to participate in events with a partner’s stand, your own stand or even as a visitor. In any case, professional development is guaranteed, as the exchange of information and contacts are essential for insights and innovation.

The benefits for your business of participating in fairs

Regardless of your chosen form of participation, considering that it will depend on your business model and objectives, being present at these fairs can bring some benefits.

The main thing is the best known: knowing the latest news in the sector. Fairs are a productive environment to launch new products, services or present new ideas. Here innovation is the keyword for better updating, strategic planning and development of the area.

However, there are other advantages. One of them is the extensive knowledge acquired from the entire production cycle of the textile sector. If you feel there is an area you are not familiar with and want to improve, this is your chance. This will make it easier to understand your business processes and how to optimize them.

In addition, there is networking with professionals in the textile segment and with references in the sector. The lectures, debates and conversations are enriching to motivate and share experiences. Furthermore, they open doors to future business opportunities and increase your contact list.

Finally, there is still the possibility of surveying the competition and analyzing what has been done. This way, you can understand what works and what doesn’t. This also helps to understand the level of competitiveness and productivity of your business compared to others.

It is worth highlighting that by positioning your company as an exhibitor, you will be acquiring these benefits and notoriety. It will be easier for professionals to get to know you without the need to search for more contacts.
