D-PLUS TRADING CO., LTD. will exhibit products from companies participating in its “tunageru” textile BtoB platform at the “PRECO PARIS 2024 Spring/Summer Pre-Collection Showroom,” a joint materials exhibition to be held on January 11 and 12, 2023, at Galerie Joseph in Paris, France.
WHAT IS PRECO PARIS ALL ABOUT
PRECO PARIS is a joint exhibition of materials specializing in textiles held at the Galerie Joseph showroom in the downtown Paris.
A large number of exhibitors, mainly European factories, will present their pre-collections for Spring/Summer 2024.
The show attracts buyers from haute couture houses, designer brands, chain stores, and online brands, and serves as a meeting place to facilitate business matching between exhibitors and visitors.
WHAT IS tunageru ALL ABOUT
“tunageru” is a textile BtoB platform with more than 100 textile manufacturing and sales businesses as suppliers, mainly textile production companies in Fukui, Bishu, Nishiwaki and other proud fabric production areas in Japan.
Buyers such as apparel manufacturers and fashion designers can place orders for fabrics, mainly high-quality domestic textiles, with various suppliers such as machine shops, knitters, dyeing and processing plants, and fabric wholesalers. It is a marketplace where wholesale sales and purchases of textiles and other textile products take place.
Background of PRECO PARIS exhibition
The TUNAGERU management team has been interviewing participating suppliers about their sales challenges, and in many cases, they cite overseas sales channel development as well as new development in the domestic market.
This time, as a test marketing for overseas sales channel development, we will participate in this exhibition to promote excellent Japanese textiles overseas.
We will exhibit products of TOMITA SHOJI Co., Ltd., Hironen Co., Ltd., Marujin Co., Ltd. and Meirin Seni Co., Ltd. in Fukui prefecture which participate in tunageru as suppliers and make a sales pitch about those.
We will implement this project in cooperation with the Fukui and Paris offices of JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) under the commission of Fukui City.
Textile cross-border BtoB/EC site and SNS are released
In late December 2022, we will release a textile cross-border BtoB/EC site as tunageru’s global site.
This site will allow customers to view and purchase product information online at any time. This site will provide a place to continuously support buyers who visit the exhibition even after the exhibition period.
We support wholesale fabric sales both offline and online exhibitions.
We have also opened an Instagram account to this EC site and attract overseas textile buyers.
We, D-PLUS TRADING CO., LTD., would like to take this exhibition as a starting point to further develop tunageru as a service that can promote the development of domestic and overseas sales channels for fabric distributors in Japan.
