Second highest attendance in history of Texworld USA

Texworld USA, which organisers say is the largest sourcing event in the United States for apparel applications, returned last week to New York City’s Javits Convention Center. The seventh edition showcased 138 exhibitors from 13 countries and welcomed 2,678 attendees. While the attendee number showed a decrease of 6% from last July due to current economic conditions, it still made a record as the second highest attended Texworld USA since the inception of the show.

“Long-term the American market is still the most important market in the world, and Texworld USA is the most important and valuable show for this market.  We expect the slow-down of the last year to have turned by the time we have our January 2010 edition.” commented David Audrain, President of Messe Frankfurt USA on the final outcome of the July 2009 show.

Organisers say that Texworld USA demonstrated the ability to cater to a diverse array of the world’s most sought-after fabric buyers drawing representatives from: American Eagle, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, BCBG Max Azria Group, Charlotte Ronson, Chico’s FAS, Coach, Destination Maternity Corporation, Express, Gap, JCPenney, Jones New York, Macy’s, Madewell/J.Crew, Oscar de la Renta Collection, Phillips Van Heusen, Sean John, Under Armour, Urban Outfitters, Victoria’s Secret, Wal-Mart and Warnaco.

Lenzing Innovation

Lenzing Innovation continued to partner with Messe Frankfurt for the seventh edition of Texworld USA. The pavilion is an expansion of their successful fabrics trade fair, Innovation Asia (formerly TENCEL New York Inc.) and once again showcased Lenzing customers and their products.

The eighth edition of Texworld USA will take place January 19 - 21, 2010 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
