In its inaugural year, APAC-Insider is delighted to present the 2021 APAC Textile Awards designed to recognize and uplift the very best businesses that make up the celebrated APAC Textile industry!
APAC-Insider has carefully observed and researched the textile industry over the past 12-months, and we couldn’t be more excited to begin seeking out and rewarding the leading innovators and pioneers who make up this vibrantly diverse industry.
The APAC region makes up approximately 60% of the global population and has, for many years, dominated the production of textiles and materials. With clothing, decor and interior products being such a large part of our daily lives on a global basis, with its developed technology and sourcing availability, it is clear to see why the Asia Pacific remains a global leader for the design, production and distribution of some of the world’s finest textiles.
Unlike other awards programs, the 2021 APAC Textile Awards are judged solely on a merit basis, meaning that each and everyone of our nominees is offered a level playing field. We do not form our final decision based on company size nor annual turnover. This is because we believe that a business is not only represented by its numbers and that it is of vital importance to recognise the dedication and innovation that an organisation is able to demonstrate.
Taking part in the 2021 APAC Textile Awards is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your business as a leading light within the textiles industry across the entire Asia Pacific Region. Here at APAC-Insider we firmly believe that third party recognition is one of the best ways to grow and develop a business, broaden your client reach and most importantly establish yourselves as key players within your field.
Furthermore, should you go on to achieve one of our prestigious accolades, we provide our winners with an exciting selection of promotional opportunities that we can explore together to ensure that news of your success reaches the eyes and ears of those who matter most to you and your business.
Our available options are specifically designed to assist your business in broadening your brands reach and are also a fantastic opportunity to reward your employees in turn boosting company morale!
In closing, if you own, are part of or would like to nominate a leading textile business then please complete the voting form. If you have any questions regarding participation or the awards process, then please contact awards coordinator Jessie Wilson using the contact details provided.

The team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. The team encourage external nominations from magazine subscribers, web visitors, social media following, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination, all firms and individuals are obviously free to accept or decline if they so wish. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional supporting information. There is no obligation to complete and supply such material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as do our research team.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or by the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment based on various criteria such as business performance, longevity, diversification, growth (either sustained or rapid), significant innovations, feedback from stakeholders etc.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the APAC Insider website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We offer a range of promotional packages and items to APAC Insider award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, trophies, content in our magazine and content on our website.
We encourage winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure. Announcements via company websites, blogs, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch.
