Located in the heart of Hall 6 of the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, the PV Hub will occupy a space of more than 1400 m2 between the Yarns, Manufacturing and Fabrics universes.

Set up opposite the entrance to the hall and at the end of the brand new Sourcing Solutions forum, this new platform dedicated to innovation and eco-responsibility will bring together the Smart Creation universe, the Talks Area, a new pitches area for exhibitors, business meeting spaces and rest areas.

Smart Creation

New developments, alternative materials, cutting-edge technical and technological innovations, advice and adapted services… solutions to support the creative fashion industry in its responsible transformation are at the heart of the Smart Creation space, which is moving in July from its historic Hall 4 to the PV HUB in Hall 6.

Although its location has changed, the Smart Creation offer remains the same, with three sectors bringing together some fifty companies, all selected for their expertise, their commitment and the innovative, surprising or necessary nature of their products, solutions or services. For the next edition of the show, there will be 56 exhibitors joining the Smart Creation offer.

Smart Materials | Eco-designed fibres and materials
Smart Tech | Technological solutions and innovations
Smart Services | Counselling and certification

Talks & Exhibitor pitches areas

Once again this year, the PV Paris show will feature a programme of talks, fashion seminars and exhibitor pitches to give you a unique insight into trends, fashion market evolutions, environmental responsibility challenges and the latest innovations from professionals in the sector.

But unlike previous shows, in July, the Talks Area will take a central place by joining the new PV Hub and will be completed this year by a new addition: a dedicated Pitches Area will allow exhibitors to come and talk about a new service, a product innovation or a new technology developed by their company.

This pitch area will be set up at the back of the talks area and both will be accessible for free to all.

A focus on “a better way”

With eco-responsibility as the guiding theme of this new innovation space, the PV Hub will also feature an educational display to support the launch of Première Vision’s new program for decoding exhibitors’ committed initiatives: “a better way”.

This new visual display of the PV Paris show’s eco-responsible offer will be launched in July and will consist of five pictograms designed to qualify the level of sustainability of each exhibitor based on five themes: social initiatives, impact of production sites, traceability, product composition and durability.

Business meeting spaces & rest areas

Finally, in order to offer you improved services and to make your visit to the show even more pleasant, the new PV Hub will also include areas dedicated to business meetings where you will be able to discuss with your team or your future suppliers, as well as chill-out zones where you will be able to enjoy a few moments of rest during your sourcing day.
