Triple show co-location attracts visitors during NYC Textile Week

The summer edition of Texworld USA, International Apparel Sourcing Show, and Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, organised by Messe Frankfurt, ended successfully last week at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.

In terms of exhibitors and space the shows increased by around 25% compared to the 2014 summer event. In total, 917 exhibitors from 40 countries presented their products from basics to novelties.

“We are delighted to see that the triple show co-location has become a leading textile platform during NYC Textile Week which establishes New York as the decisive destination for textile and sourcing professionals in the global industries,” said Detlef Braun, member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt. The textile industry fully participated in NYC Textile Week where various textile shows were staged for the first time concurrent in the same week.

Programme and exhibition

The shows provided visitors access to the full spectrum of sourcing options for apparel fabrics, garment manufacturing and finished soft goods for the home.

CCPIT-Tex from China, the joint venture partner for International Apparel Sourcing Show and Home Textile Sourcing Expo, showed the strength of the Chinese textile industry by bringing quality manufacturers representing fabrics, apparel and home products.

Additionally, educational seminar series dealing with current hot topics of the industry were offered. The Texworld Art Directors, Louis Gerin and Gregory Lamaud, presented the Texworld Trends for Autumn/Winter 2016-17 and displayed a selection of fabrics in various trend forums.

Visitor attraction

Over the three day event, there was a steady flow of buyers. “We had a good show. Many big players mainly from the US contacted us here at Texworld USA, among them famous fashion brands looking for performance fabrics,” commented Rebecca Yeh, Solution Co-Creator at Everest Textile from Taiwan.

At the International Apparel Sourcing Show Henrique Gandara, Commercial Director of Gouveia & Campos, from Portugal, pointed out the unique role of the show in New York City. “There is no other show with this profile where brands can source solutions for their production. That is why we come here and make new contacts.”
