At least 371 exhibitors representing 14 countries and more than 4,000 visitors thronged to the winter edition of the concurrently held Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA 2018.
Educational seminars, trend display area and a preview of Spring/Summer 2019 colour and textiles were the key attractions of the three-day event organised at Javits Center in New York from January 22-24. Global textile and sourcing landscape including sustainable solutions and the circular economy were majorly discussed by industry experts at the event.
The enthralling addition to the fair – Texworld Trend Showcase explored the latest designs for the upcoming season. During the show, textiles, trims, accessories, manufacturing and private label development services and finished garments were presented by a broad range of global suppliers.
This year, the textile fair also witnessed the introduction of ‘Explore the Floor Series’ which allowed partakers to have a round of the show floor with industry professionals. Attendees were apprised about different exhibitors and evolving trends.
Another highlight, Apparel Sourcing USA SPOTLIGHT, a joint venture between Messe Frankfurt Inc. and CCPIT-TEX hosted exhibitors specialising in womenswear, menswear, kidswear, and accessories with Denim in focus.
Texworld and Apparel Sourcing USA will now return in July 2018.
