The Portuguese region of Vila Nova ( near Porto) is visiting our offices on the 19th February with a delegation interested in the textile industry in a wider sense. They will give an overview and short presentation of opportunities and possibilities for cooperation in their region.They are keen to meet Liverpool-based businesses in the textile and related sectors. This means that British companies, for instance, can source materials and manufacture their products from Portugal while in turn they can export their expertise in design and innovation to their businesses. Amongst the delegation there are representatives from sportswear, street and maternity wear, high end knitwear and the association of textile and clothing businesses.

Vila Nova and Porto are within 3 hours reach of Liverpool via John Lennon Airport. Besides,it is the textile city of Europe and the third exporter city in Portugal and the first in the North. It is home to global companies like Continental, Leica with big brands including Hugo Boss, Armani, Ted Baker, Fred Perry and Zara sourcing their materials from and getting their production manufactured there.
