Textile business in Nigeria and Africa is quite intangible due to a lack of infrastructure, opportunities, and access to technology. IPONTEX 2019 is an exhibition, seminar, and workshop created to boost the fashion industry
According to Statista, the global apparel market is worth about 1.5 trillion dollars. Unfortunately, Africa’s share of that huge amount is less than 1%, despite a huge population of people who love fashion.
Smbiz Assist Limited, a company dedicated to the development of Africa’s apparel industry is taking a bold step in changing the narrative about fashion business in the continent.
The company announces they’re organizing the first edition of the International Print On Textile Expo (IPONTEX 2019) with the theme – exploring new frontiers in the textile print business.
