Guide to participation in the <Textile Business Negotiation Salon>

The Premium Textile Japan (PTJ) was launched, targeting efforts to provide a business matching platform where top domestic and overseas buyers and suppliers converge, and now celebrates its11th anniversary. The fair has been widely acclaimed by buyers as an active, animated event, which has firmly established its presence. Most visitors comprise apparel designers and MDs who are decision-makers for fabric procurement, making the fair a real business-oriented negotiation salon. A productive and in-depth business related programme coordinated by the organiser also adds to the appeal of this key event. It is the only premium textile salon which provides authentic brands and products; striving to invite textile buyers of high-end brands, not only from domestic markets but also those from overseas, such as Asia centring on China


The < Premium Textile Japan 2016S/S > held in May this year attracted 6,458 (117% compared to the previous yr.), including numerous key fashion industry players. Likewise, the PTJ 2016A/W held in November recorded a record number of exhibitors. We will further strive to enrich the content of the upcoming spring fair.


We will recruit textile manufacturers with high technicity, providing top-quality products. Take this opportunity to showcase your company products and extend your business scope by participating in the PTJ fair !
