The largest fabric sourcing event for the North American market Texworld USA, co-located with Apparel Sourcing USA, will take place from 22-24 July, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, NY. This edition boasts an exciting educational line up with a spotlight on sustainability, and will also cover topics including circularity, traceability, and how to stay relevant in the current state of the industry.

“Originally a buzz word in the industry, the trendy topic of sustainability started popping up a couple of years ago, and now, more and more global companies are catching on. It’s necessary and it’s everywhere. And just like anything, it’s all about consumer education. With the mass amounts of resources and information available showing how the apparel industry negatively contributes to the problem, consumers want sustainable solutions,” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director of Texworld USA, Apparel Sourcing USA.

“Companies know sustainable practices are not just an option, but a requirement in the future, but some are confused about how to achieve this. Our educational platform aims to address this matter by explaining how to improve internal processes and systems like a direct to consumer business model, how to become sustainable-certified, and much more.”

This summer’s programme is designed to offer insightful and informative sessions for every role and level of experience across every segment of the industry.
