DEFINING THE FUTURE OF PERFORMANCE

About FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR Portlandpowered by PERFORMANCE DAYS® 
Following the successful introduction of the New York edition in 2018, the Portland event will launch in the Fall of 2019 as a standalone event addressing a market need for a curated sourcing platform dedicated to outdoor and activewear functional textiles and accessories. The October, west coast edition will feature products and technologies that will enter the market for the Winter 2021 season.

Alongside the exhibit, FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR Portland will also feature:

  • Guided Tours Led by our team of textile experts who will help recommend the right suppliers based on the individual sourcing needs of each designer/apparel executive.

  • The PERFORMANCE FORUM A highly curated platform, designed to introduce and showcase the latest textile and accessory innovations and trends.

  • Expert Talks Presented by internationally renowned apparel influencers and included with your complimentary registration.

  • Zero waste exhibits through the use of bio-degradable, recycled and reusable materials.

WHY PORTLAND?

Portland, Oregon is a vibrant west coast city that thrives on its rich cultural scene and dedication to eco-friendly values. Set against a pristine backdrop of natural beauty, it’s no wonder many sports and outdoor brands (Adidas North America, Avia, Columbia, Nike, The North Face Poler Stuff, etc.) have made a home in Portland. Its proximity to other major apparel headquarter hubs make it a no-brainer for the future locale of FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR.
