We are pleased to be attending a leading exhibition and seminar to promote and share our testing knowledge in Vietnam. In partnership with agent Thach Anh Vang, we will be exhibiting at SaigonTex 2016 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre in Ho Chi Minh City.
The exhibition, which attracted 656 exhibitors and an estimated 15,000 visitors in 2015, is expected to be the largest SaigonTex yet. Open from 30th March – 2nd April, it is described as ‘the biggest and the most important event in the textile and garment industry of Vietnam’.
It is an opportunity for two of our experts; Louise Sheridan, Product Manager for Test Materials and Javier Manzano, International Sales Manager, to share expertise in textile testing with visitors to the Thach Anh Vang stand, Booth 1E-1. The Titan, a universal strength tester which can accommodate tests up to 5kN, and the Martindale abrasion and pilling tester, will be on show, and visitors are invited to watch demonstrations and learn more about the testing process.
James Heal’s quality testing material range, which is manufactured, processed and tested in our Test Materials Centre in the UK, will also be exhibited. The test materials are totally compliant with relevant standards and specifications, and visitors to the exhibition are invited to see how the James Heal range can meet their testing needs.
The Exhibition will be supported by a seminar on 29th March, organised by Thach Anh Vang, which will be attended by key buyers, laboratory managers and production directors from the textile industry. Both representatives from James Heal and Mdm Tran Thanh Liem, Textile Technical Manager at Intertek Vietnam, will present on the importance of high quality test materials, best practise and efficient management of laboratories and new product development.
On visiting Vietnam, Louise Sheridan said ‘This is a great opportunity to understand the needs of this growing market and a chance to share testing knowledge in Vietnam. We look forward to speaking directly to existing and future customers to establish their needs and to promote our quality assured, British textile testing solutions’.
