MAURITIUS: Manufacturers To Stage UK Sourcing Show
The Mauritius International Apparel and Textile Exhibition (Miatex) is returning to London next month after a seven year absence.
Organised by The Mauritius Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) the event will bring around 30 of the island's top manufacturers to The Conference Centre, Olympia, London on the 7-8 October 2004.
Elizabeth Ah Chong, director of MIDA says: "Having shown in Europe over the past seven years we feel the time is right to show again in London.
"We believe there is huge potential for fruitful business between the UK and the Mauritian textile and apparel industry. We are also keen to show the UK retailers our excellent design capability."
Positioned at the middle to better end range, Mauritius-based manufacturers are key suppliers of T-shirts, pullovers, shirts and trousers.
Key exhibitors at Miatex include: Firemount Textiles Ltd, one of the largest jeans wear producers in the southern hemisphere and Shibani Knitting Co Ltd, which produces around 90,000 sweaters, pullovers and cardigans per month for retailers Galeries Lafayette, Mothercare, Calvin Klein and Burberry.
