Première Vision SA is a French company that has been organising textile and fashion trade fairs since 1973. Initially local, the company skilfully evolved to acquire first a national then an international dimension. The relevance of its strategic choices, and the quality of its services, have earned it global recognition.
The world's leading fabric fair, the Première Vision show is held twice a year in Paris. Today it is at the heart of an international network. Over the past ten years it has successfully created and developed events in key zones of the fashion planet: New York, Beijing, Shanghai, Moscow and Sao Paulo.
To help organise this international operation, it relies on a network of twelve subsidiary companies and foreign offices throughout the world.
Alongside its high-performance services, one of Première Vision's strong points is its Fashion Information. Its unique approach in this domain is based on meetings with leading international experts and professionals, to gather and exchange viewpoints on emerging trends destined to influence the fashion season. This forward-looking and exclusive information inspires the entire chain of design and creation.
Beyond its international dimension, Première Vision also develops events designed to address the needs of specific markets. Thus in 2007 it created the first trade fair dedicated to jeans fabrics, Denim by Première Vision, a show that is now the international reference in jeanswear.
Since 2005, the "Première Vision Pluriel" brand has served as an umbrella for 6 complementary trade fairs held concurrently in Paris: Expofil (yarns and fibres), Première Vision (fabrics), Indigo (textile design and creation), ModAmont (supplies and trims for fashion and design), Le Cuir à Paris (leather and fur) and Zoom by Fatex (contract manufacturing for fashion). These shows all share the same demand for constant innovation and quality.
Positioning itself on an offer and services with high added-value, Première Vision currently manages 24 shows a year in six countries. They bring together more than 3,400 exhibitors and welcome some 160,000 visitors from across the globe.
In 2009, the company, based in Lyon and Paris, had a consolidated turnover of 35 million euros.
