The International Sourcing Expo 2016

Mark your diaries - The International Sourcing Expo 2016 has been announced and is now open for free trade registrations! We are excited to once again be industry partners of event, kicking off from the 15th-17th of November at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.


As Australia's major trade platform for the international sourcing of fashion and apparel, textiles and accessories, the event will again be co-located with China Clothing and Textiles Expo and provides the Australian trade with an established face-to-face channel to access international suppliers, designs, products and services.

With the launch of the concurrent Footwear and Leather Show with these two established events, the 2016 event will attract a broader international participation across the combined events including expected major participation from Turkey and Mauritius.

This year's expo will feature an even stronger supporting program with a revised format including international Keynote Speakers, industry workshops, artisan and trend presentations and seminar panel discussions on topical trade and sourcing issues. International trend expert Milou Ket from the Netherlands is set to appear as a Keynote Speaker at the event for the first time and will provide invaluable fashion industry insight.


The International Sourcing Expo delivers a professional platform for international sourcing and industry engagement, learning and networking. Whether you are a start-up business or an established one, the event provides an opportunity to connect with potential new commercial partners and industry experts to help your business grow.

The Council of Textile and Fashion is pleased to once again announce its status as industry partner. This will include participation in the seminar and workshop program, along with a showcase of local Australian programs and industry capability.
