Ready to Show, the first and only Italian fair dedicated to outsourcing for the textile and clothing sector, returns with an edition full of novelties: from new realities that you want to offer to an international market to a series of events and meetings aimed at explore important issues of the fashion circuit.
Ready to Show was born in 2001 from the mind of Georges Papa, suddenly interrupted due to Covid 19, returns more sparkling than ever to the limelight next July 2023 in a physical and no longer virtual version www.readytoshow.it.
Ready to Show will be hosted from Tuesday 11 to Thursday 13 July in the large and welcoming spaces of the UNAHotel Expo Fiera Milano in via Giovanni Keplero 2 in Pero, near FieraMilano, from 9.00 to 19.00: a return to presence marked by the desire to meet again and from a parterre of exhibitors and guests of great international scope. There will be between 150 and 200 exhibitors selected on the basis of certain business, commercial and other requirements: Georges Papa, being an expert in the international arena, known in the outourcing sector, has made a careful and accurate selection among manufacturers from China, Turkey, India, Egypt, Bangladesh, Pakistan, countries that are already suppliers to the Italian sector for fashion from the highest market segment to large-scale retail trade. Also representatives from Mauritius, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Madagascar, Nepal, Romania, Moldova could not be missing: smaller partners but suitable for lower minimum quantities.
“WE ARETHE WORLDWIDE PRODUCTION PARTNERS FOR ITALIAN FASHION: this is the motto that must be pronounced with pride and that must also be deserved!” says Georges Papa “The goal is to give Italian brands the opportunity to meet production partners from all over the world. Furthermore, for the first time, an Italy Area will also be set up where contractors, designers and service companies can exhibit Italians”.
Grouped as exhibitors in the ITALY AREA of the Fair, they will in fact propose themselves to emerging Italian and European brands and young designers looking for production partners for a true Made in Europe.
The common thread that will unite exhibitors, visitors and guests will be the theme of Sustainability in all its facets, starting from its technical and production meaning, in terms of management of the life cycle of products and plants: design, manufacturing, promotion , commercialization and recycling, in order to obtain economic and environmental benefits. No less important is ethical and human sustainability, which has the task of ensuring a dignified work environment with respect for the people who contribute to the production chain.
Ready to Show will also feature a series of events that will animate the 3 days of the fair: conferences and B2B meetings, fashion shows for emerging designers, round tables and much more: a detailed calendar will be available shortly.
B2B meetings where you can get to know young Italian and international designers, in particular the members of the International Designers Network, of which Georges Papa was a founding member in the 90s and currently Vice President. These new realities will have the opportunity to meet Italian manufacturing companies, contractors and consultants who will be able to support them in the launch of their first personal collections. It will also be an opportunity for freelance stylists to meet brands looking for collaborations and vice versa.
An exhibition program enriched by a cycle of round tables, which will focus on 3 main themes, such as import and export internationalization, sustainability from all points of view and technological innovation.
Without forgetting the collective fashion shows broadcast in streaming, wide-ranging events and meetings presented in a welcoming hotel structure where we will host VIPs, buyers and exhibitors thanks to an excellent host program, agreed with international sponsors.
