With a projected market value of $31 billion in 2020, the apparel and textile business would likely overtake agriculture as the second-largest sector in Africa. It has the potential to generate millions of employment across the continent, particularly for women and young people, and it is growing every year.
The eagerly awaited EAST AFRICA TEXTILE AND LEATHER WEEK [EATLW] 2023 edition is the most prestigious gathering venue for the home textile, leather accessories, and footwear sectors and is ready to revolutionize the East African textile industry.

EATLW, a three-day conference, and exhibition (June 28–30) brings together influential industry players and thought leaders from around the world to explore business opportunities, engage in meaningful discussions, and see the incredible potential of East Africa’s garment manufacturing sector with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and craftsmanship.
Three thousand five hundred wholesalers, retailers, chains, manufacturers, and dealers from East and Central Africa will attend the event along with 150 exhibitors from East Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
