A total of 135 meetings were held, with a total of 388 participants from 23 different countries, including 68 transnational meetings.

Under the umbrella of MODtissimo, the oldest textile fair in the Iberian Peninsula and the only one in Portugal dedicated to the Portuguese Textile and Clothing Industry, a 1-week event was held to support business and co-operations. During the 6-days, participants had the opportunity to visit the Portuguese exhibitors, attend to several talks and webinars, walk around the iTechstyle innovation showcase and iTechstyle Green Circle and attend to the ITechstyle awards ceremony.

A marketplace with around 400 register entities was arranged for companies in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the European textile and fashion industry, to grow and expand business opportunities!

The event was a unique place for companies to reach a network of customers, designers, innovation, stakeholders and Portuguese and international manufacturers. The ideal place for Networking.

The matchmaking event was organised by the TEX4IM project with the support of the COSME programme from the European Commission and in collaboration with MODtissimo Textile Trade Fair and European Enterprise Network.

TEX4IM aims to build strategic partnerships to modernise the European textile and fashion industry and strengthen competitiveness. Eight regional textile clusters from France, Italy, Portugal, Romania, the Czech Republic, Spain and Sweden are taking part in the project.
