FET has a wide variety of customers in more than 35 different countries and is continually looking to extend its reach to new countries, markets and industries. We recognise the importance of face-to-face contact as the ideal way of building trust and lasting business relationships. We visit clients and potential clients at their own premises and are always delighted to welcome customers to our facilities in Leeds, so that they can gain first hand a firm understanding of our services and experience.

FET – Building business relationships at Exhibitions

We find also that exhibitions are an excellent medium for meeting customers in a stimulating work environment. A regular presence at exhibitions gives us the opportunity to meet up and socialise with customers from numerous different countries at a single event – and of course to make contact with potential new customers for the first time.


The following are examples of exhibitions we have regularly attended in the past:

  • Techtextil exhibition, Frankfurt – the leading International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens
  • ITMA exhibition – the world’s leading integrated textile and garment manufacturing technologies exhibition
  • CMEF, China – the International Medical Equipment Fair

We have to be selective about which exhibitions at which we have a stand presence, so we choose accessible shows that reflect our core business and strengths.

FET’s next scheduled exhibition is Techtextil, Frankfurt 21 to 24 June 2022.
FET has long been a supporter of prestigious textile and related exhibitions worldwide, but is currently monitoring the pandemic situation before committing to other future events.
