Morocco Textile Exhibitions

The oldest textile and fashion exhibition in Morocco belongs to Pyramid group Fairs (Morocco Fashion and Tex / Morocco Hometex / Morocco leather and shoes) which organized since March 2015 in Casablanca.

the interesting thing is that Morocco textile and fashion market is very attractive for textile manufacturer countries such as China, Turkey, India and …which China market share is dramatically higher than others and a big part of exhibitors who attend to Morocco textile and fashion exhibitions are Chinese.

for example, Morocco Fashion and Tex exhibition organized last year with around 4000 net sqm but near 2500 sqm of it belong to China Paviliontht present a vast range of yarn, fabric, textile and fashion accessories, leather products and …

definitely one of the most important reasons to organize a textile exhibition in Morocco is Chinese textile companies curiosity about the market and China Government subsidies and supports to push Chinese textile manufacturers to enter the Africa market and increasing export rate. 

at the same time, high demand for textile material such as all kind of yarn, fabric, textile chemicals, textile auxiliaries and … from Morocco textile Manufacturers is another driven force for organizers. 

textile industry after tourism and hospitality is one of the most important sectors in Morocco revenue and it has a significant role in Morocco economy as one of the best and stable economies in Africa Continent in the last 10 year.

however it is too early to conclude success of textile exhibitions in Morocco and still, we need more time to evaluate the results but it suppose to if Morocco Textile exhibitions only become a place for Chinese exhibitors and Chinese textile products and international exhibitors don’t participate in higher-level it can not be useful events and doesn’t help to development and improvement of Morocco Textile Industry.
