Apparelsourcing USA and Texworld USA to welcome more than 700 exhibitors

The Apparelsourcing USA and the Texworld USA trade shows will return to the Javits Convention Center in New York City, where they will open their doors to exhibitors and attendees from 12-14 July, together hosting over 700 international exhibitors.

As the only event on the East Coast to focus on finished apparel, contract manufacturing and private label development, Apparelsourcing USA will connect attendees with suppliers specializing in ready-to-wear for men, women, children and accessories. This summer’s edition promises to be the most exciting yet, according to organisers, with the debut of a new Mexico pavilion, a revamped show floor layout and the new Fashion on Display Trend Cafe.

The 10th anniversary edition of Texworld USA, the premier North American fabric sourcing show, will also bring some novelties, with a brand new international pavilion, the most diverse product group offering to date, and a dedicated focus on sustainable and eco-friendly products.

Once again co-located with Texworld USA, Apparelsourcing USA is an opportunity for visitors to source complimentary products and manufacturing services from over 220 exhibitors representing nine countries, including USA, China, Bangladesh, Kenya, Taiwan, and more.

Alongside the returning Pakistan pavilion, the brand new Mexico pavilion will make its debut on the show floor with several exhibitors specializing in lingerie and activewear for men and women. Over three show days, visitors will have the opportunity to explore products across 12 end-use groups.

New to the Apparelsourcing USA, the Fashion on Display Trend Café will provide attendees with a preview of the best of exhibitors’ manufacturing capabilities and finished apparel products. In addition, the Fashion on Display Trend Cafe will offer visitors a rest area with comfortable seating and full gourmet coffee and bar service.

New product category designations

In addition to exploring services and resources from a variety of global suppliers, attendees will experience new product category designations on the exhibit hall floor – casual and formal. This new categorization of product offerings aims to help attendees navigate the show floor.

“Not only have we brought in the best group of exhibitors we’ve ever had on the show floor”, said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director. “Our new casual and formal categories are designed to make navigating the show floor much easier and we hope that the upgrades we’ve made to the show’s Fashion on Display area will really elevate the attendee experience at Apparelsourcing USA.”

Texworld USA’s summer 2016 edition will feature over 500 international exhibitors representing 15 countries, including USA, United Kingdom, China, Indonesia, Lebanon, Japan, Canada, Colombia, India and more. Alongside the returning Turkey and Taiwan pavilions, a brand new Korea pavilion presented by KTTA will make its debut on the show floor. Once again, the Lenzing Innovations pavilion will return with 25 exhibitors focused on incorporating sustainable fibres into a wide range of product categories.

“Through our new selection committee process we’ve ensured that the quality of our exhibitors and their offerings is the highest we’ve ever presented at Texworld USA”, said Jennifer Bacon. “In addition, we’ve listened to what the industry is demanding and we’ve continued to expand our functional fabric, denim and eco-friendly categories.”

As always, attendees will have the opportunity to source fabrics, trims and accessories for every type of product line – women, men, juniors and children’s wear – across a total of 16 product groups, including the brand new faux fur category and an expanded functional fabrics category.

Partnership with Lenzing

This July will also mark Texworld USA’s 10-year anniversary and 10 years of partnership with Lenzing Innovation. Throughout the last decade, Lenzing Innovation has remained at the core of Texworld USA and has vitally contributed to the show’s growth through consistent delivery of high quality exhibitors and over 200 educational seminars for industry engagement, organisers report.

“Since the launch of Texworld USA ten years ago, Lenzing Innovation has been a vital supporter and partner in this event”, said Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt North America.

“Through the impressive quality of textile mills exhibiting in the Lenzing Innovation Pavilion and a prestigious group of speakers recruited for the Lenzing Seminar Series, the North American team led by Tricia Carey have shown incredible loyalty and support for this sourcing platform.”

Focus on sustainability

In addition to celebrating 10 years in business, exciting new exhibitors and product categories, the summer 2016 edition of Texworld USA will feature an enhanced focus on sustainability. Taking note of recent industry discussions and the increased importance of sustainable sourcing to both consumers and designers, Texworld USA has increased its focus on the topic.

Attendees will be able to discover over 35 exhibitors offering sustainable and eco-friendly textiles and on-site recycled fibre demonstrations courtesy of Repreve and the #TurnItGreen tour interactive trailer.

Rounding out the sustainability focus, Lenzing Innovation will present six complimentary, expert-led educational sessions focused on sustainability as part of the Texworld USA seminar series and the brand new Texworld USA Industry Boot Camps programming.
