PARIS — An uptick in visitors translated into better sales and lifted the spirits of mills exhibiting at Texworld.
Organizers said the number of visitors attending the fair, which concluded its four-day run on Thursday, increased 11.6 percent to 14,871, compared with the 13,322 people that attended the February edition. However, attendance was down from the September 2008 edition. The show drew 763 exhibitors. Despite the early signs of improvement, organizers remain cautious on how a global recovery will play out.
