Along with the commercial exhibition, the event will also include an academic section, the VIII Exports Forum, as well as the Young Creators to the World contest and runway shows; the latter serving as a powerful tool to show that Peru is capable of offering not only a full package textile production, but also novelty and attractive creations for high-end clients, including specialized segments such as fair trade, ethical trade, fine fibers (alpaca and vicuña), among others.

The runway show of the Fashion Week (from April 23 to 28) will be the complement of the fair. The international guest of this edition is the Spanish designer Adolfo Domínguez.
