International Apparel and Textile Fair

Dubai World Trade Centre

International Apparel and Textile Fair is back after 5 successful editions on 8th, 9th & 10th at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Being the 6th edition, IATF has evolved as a leading brand for buyers in the MENA region to source the best textiles, fabrics, accessories and prints from international mills.

Exhibitors are mainly from Europe, India, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Turkey and various other high-end manufacturers from around the world. IATF will provide manufacturers and their agents the opportunity to showcase their products to the most influential buyers and designers on the UAE fashion scene. Principally a “trade only” event, IATF provides a professional and conducive atmosphere to business and networking.

Exhibitors and visitors alike have something positive to say about each edition of International Apparel and Textile Fair. Below are a few of their comments about the experience:
