I get asked this question a lot, “What is the best garment fair in Vietnam?” Simple answer is: there is none. If you want to meet garment manufacturers, there is none. What does exist is the VTG Expo 2020. This event is a 2 in 1 event. Vietnam and Textile Garment expo and Vietnam Fabric and Garment Accessories expo. They happen at the same time in the same venue: Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) (799 Nguyễn Văn Linh, Tân Phú, Quận 7, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam).
The VTG Expo 2020 will be held November 25 (Wed.) - 28 (Sat.), 2020.
Vietnam Textile and Garment expo is full of equipment and fabric suppliers from Korea, Taiwan and China who want to sell their sewing machines, automatic cutting machines or latest collection of trim and accessories. You will find many garment professionals selling related services like freight forwarding, printing inks and sewing needles.
We are the only cut&sew garment booth attending the VTG Expo for the past few years.
I guess the reason can be: there is no demand to exhibit since garment companies in Vietnam mostly fall in one of the following two categories:
(1) CMT factories -which most of garment factories in Vietnam are - only take CMT orders from full-package companies
(2) foreigned owned full-package companies in Vietnam - who will have either offices in the west/ Hong Kong or will exhibit in other shows out of Vietnam
If you are exploring the possibilities of producing in Vietnam then I recommend you hire someone to take you around the country to meet with factories in the north, centre and south of Vietnam.Personally, I would charge $500/day all transportation and lodging paid by you. Flights on average run about $100 one way between any two cities. Car rental in the cities cost less than $100 per day. You will need an interpreter - not for speaking with factory owners but when talking to drivers and waiters at restaurants. I speak Vietnamese fluently so that is included in my day rate :). The first thing you will hear is that labor is cheaper in the north.

If you need a fast introduction to many sewing factories then I recommend you contact two associations: VITAS and VINATEX. They have directories that list their members that include spinning, knitting, dyeing and sewing factories.
