A Spanish delegation from the Asturias region with eight companies visited MODTISSIMO. The goal was to get to know the reality of the Portuguese textile sector up close and find future partners in the clothing sector and the rest of the value chain.
“We chose MODTISSIMO because our designers do not have production in Asturias. What we are looking for are productive capacity, which is found precisely in the Porto area and its surroundings”, explains Bruno Lopez, general director of Asturex, the association responsible for promoting companies in this region of northern Spain.
“We work with companies from various sectors. For the fair, we brought eight Fashion companies. It was a small call, a pilot experience. The idea is to expand in the coming years and, in addition to visiting the fair, also travel two or three days through this textile region”, adds Lopez.
By way of balance, the general director of Asturex praises the organization of Modtissimo: “The fair was remarkable. I like fairs that are familiar. This is a fair that feels very familiar”.
