The winter 2017 edition of Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA was a record-breaker, both in terms of exhibitors presented and visitor attendance. Texworld boasted over 225 exhibitors representing 12 countries, including Canada, US, Colombia, India, UK China, Hong Kong, Japan, Turkey, Korea and Taiwan. The Lenzing Pavilion had 17 exhibitors focused on integrating sustainable fibers into a wide range of product categories.
Apparel Sourcing presented 107 suppliers from nine countries including China, Hong Kong, India, Myanmar, Taiwan, USA, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Peru. The final attendance showed a 20 per cent increase over previously documented record for any winter edition in the show’s 10-year history.
Texworld USA’s educational sessions proved to be a big draw. The seminars focused on hot topics like TPP and duty-free trade, color and fabric trends, digital printing, and the impact of the buy-now-wear-now trend. The showcase placed a heavier emphasis on curating textiles across all 16 categories of products available and allowed visitors to get a wider view of exhibitor offerings for spring/summer 2018.
While buyers can visit other textile or apparel shows to network and get inspiration on trends, Texworld USA is the show to find in-demand, on-trend fabrics at realistic and affordable prices. It is an order writing show.
