The event aims at promoting and preserving the value of traditional silk villages across Viet Nam, including Van Phuc (Ha Noi), Hoi An and Ma Chau (Quang Nam), and Bao Loc (the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong), among others.

It will also connect craftsmen with potential business partners from Japan, India, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Europe.

In 2015, Hoi An silk village represented Viet Nam and joined the Asia Silk Alliance as one of seven founding members with the mission of linking Vietnamese silk enterprises with the wider Asian silk community.

The silk village, located at 28 Nguyen Tat Thanh Street in Hoi An, is a silk-weaving centre and living museum of the ancient trade in the central region.

The village was voted as the third best attraction in Hoi An by travel website TripAdvisor in 2015.
