AISEX & FASE 2018 will also focus on generating new opportunities closer to home for small scale local designers and manufactures. The event will feature a sourcing market/pavilion where small to medium scale manufactures, suppliers and designers can meet and source each other’s skills and products. 

The events promotions will be island wide, targeting buyers who are currently involved in apparel, garments or textiles. The exhibition will attract not only the major buyers in the market but also the small to medium scale business owners. 

The 8th edition of AISEX and FASE sets out to attract innovators and trend setters both domestic and overseas to access, meet, learn and experience.
