About FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR Portland—powered 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:
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.
The Oregon Convention Center (OCC) is located in the epicenter of Portland, and easily accessible by public and private transport. OCC is a leader in green building and other environmentally responsible business practices, and is the first convention center to earn the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership n Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) reaching platinum status in 2014.
Over 60,000 sq ft exhibit space (5,600 square meters) features booth carpeting and sustainable booths set upon recyclable aisle and booth carpeting.
