The article focuses on the Asian pavilions at Heimtextil who were buzzing as exhibitors looked to gain market share that had been held at bay by quota restrictions. Western buyers from vendor and retail companies sought to step up their sourcing operations. Some Top 15 U.S. supplier companies sent teams of more than a dozen to scout the show, and one Top 10 retailer turned up with a posse of 55. While Asian suppliers from China, Pakistan and India agreed the environment presents a shortterm opportunity of adding more customers, they already anticipate vendor consolidation following on its heels.
