Algeria to host textile expo in April

The 2nd edition of Textyle-Expo will run from April 2 to 5, 2018 in Oran. Although the Algerian textiles and fashion market is fairly reliant on imports, the government is encouraging domestic manufacturing.

São Paulo – April 2 to 5, 2018 will see the 2nd edition of the International Textile and Fashion Fair - Textyle-Expo at the Mohamed Bem Ahmed Convention Center in Oran, Algeria.

The industry show’s first edition, in 2017, featured some 110 exhibitors and welcomed over 6,000 local and international visitors from countries including Tunisia, China, India, Taiwan, Turkey, the United States and Europe, according to the event’s website.

Concurrently with the expo, a conference will take place in the Wahran Room of the Le Méridien Hotel. It will feature discussions on fashion, technology and markets with local and international industry specialists.

Panels will cover subjects including Algeria’s new investments law, the revitalization of the country’s textile industry, the European consumer market and exports from the European Union, and the competitiveness of leather items.

Fashion shows will take place, the same as in the first edition, with designers showcasing their collections.

The Textyle-Expo website says only 6% of clothing needs in Algeria are met by the domestic industry, with imports making up the remainder. The country is working on developing its output.
