About the Modtissimo fair
MODTISSIMO is the oldest trade fair in the entire Iberian Peninsula and the largest Portuguese textile trade fair exhibiting fabrics and accessories for clothing. The fair shines a light on sustainability and digitalization through its iTechStyle & Green Circle platform.
FASCINATE aims to support the internationalization of EU textile and fashion SME clusters that are working towards the development of circularity and sustainability in these industries, and this is why Fascinate has organized a series of activities during that week:
- A visit to CITEVE, the technological Institute for textile & clothing business,
- a series of visits with specific targetted Portuguese fashion and textile companies, in order to meet experts within materials, manufacturing, and design, which will share their experiences and expertise with the invited companies,
- A visit to the MODTISSIMO trade fair and guided tours to "iTechStyle Green Circle" (the Textile Innovation and Business Platform) and iTechStyle Innovative Products Showcase.
