For the first time, the event will be held in downtown Paris at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre, and organisers have already confirmed 1,300 exhibitors from approximately 20 countries.

Heralding the upcoming event as a return to pre-pandemic levels, organisers report that this should be the “largest event since the end of the Covid-19 health crisis”, with a 40% increase in exhibitors since February 2023.

Texworld Evolution Paris will also include the Avantex Paris show, which will feature the Avantex Fashion Pitch awards, where the best innovative fashion and textile projects are chosen by a jury of industry experts during the event. Stand space will be awarded to the winner at the next edition of Avantex Paris.

Organisers said: “The celebration of the 25th anniversary of Texworld Paris will be an opportunity to offer visitors special events and entertainment, as well as innovative services and networking. The T-Club area will strengthen its business-oriented services to exhibitors and visitors.

“This will also be an opportunity for Avantex Paris to reinvent itself and broaden its offer around a hub dedicated to innovative solutions and companies: performance textiles, solutions for a more sustainable fashion and Web3 players will be present at Porte de Versailles.”
