All You Need to Know about the VTG Expo 2022

LTLabs at VTG

Vietnam is one of the leading textile producers and apparel exporters in the world, with the vast majority of its products going to the US, the EU and Japan. Over the past few decades, the Vietnamese textile industry has seen exponential growth and is now all set to become the world’s no. 1 textile production center. The country also hosts the Vietnam International Textile and Garment Industry (VTG) Expo which is unarguably the largest garment and textile fabric exhibition event in Southeast Asia. This expo completely revolves around products and services of the textile, fabric, and yarn industries.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost every business across the world and the Vietnamese textile industry was no exception. The Vietnam textile exhibition, one of the most influential events in the industry, had been held at regular intervals for so many years before the pandemic changed everything.

Although this global pandemic had a strong worldwide impact, the Vietnamese textile industry recovered much faster than expected. In the post-pandemic world, the country has shifted its focus to moving up the value chain and building a national brand image that is competitive and quality-driven. In addition to this, the Vietnam fabric and garment expo also returned to on-location physical exhibitions after a 3-year long pause.

A Closer Look

The 20th Vietnam International Textile and Garment Industry Exhibition was held at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center. The SECC is an international exhibition venue in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the onsite event took place. It consists of 4 indoor exhibition halls offering a total of around 40,000 square meters and outdoor exhibit space between 15,000-20,000 square meters. The onsite event was held on September 21–24, 2022, and the online (virtual) one started on September 21 and came to an end on September 27, 2022.

This year, the iconic VTG Expo was organized by the Ministry of Industry & Trade – Vinexad National Trade Fair & Advertising J.S.C and Yorkers Trade & Marketing Service Co., Ltd., and co-organized by Guangdong Sewing Equipment Chamber Commerce, Hong Kong Apparel Machinery Association, and Paper Communication Exhibition Services.

LTLabs at the VTG Expo

LTLabs was one of the exhibitors that participated in this prestigious event. With an entire range of innovative, cloud-based solutions for apparel businesses, we were among the most talked-about exhibitors. What most likely worked for us was that we were the first ones to offer consolidated solutions for garment businesses.

Our LT Connect Suite is an extensive network of several solutions designed to facilitate end-to-end workflow for apparel businesses. By choosing from our wide range of tools, businesses can streamline their operations and maximize efficiency while enhancing production quality. And the best thing is that these solutions can be used either on a standalone basis or as a complete package depending on the specific needs of a business.

All in all, being a part of the VTG Expo has been an experience in itself. This is a unique platform for all the industry players to increase their brand success through engagement and meaningful interactions. It also gave us an opportunity to gain more knowledge about current trends and customer preferences.
