The fourth edition of the International Apparel Sourcing Show succeeded in maintaining its importance for the apparel sourcing industry. The event welcomed 144 exhibitors from 9 countries, such as China, Mauritus, Colombia, Pakistan and more at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Visitors took advantage of the many services offered by the show exhibitors, among them contract manufacturing, original design manufacturing and private label development. Including co-located Texworld USA and Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, the shows welcomed 5,292 verified attendees.

“The co-location between Apparel Sourcing and Texworld USA is extremely beneficial to our buyers as it offers a one-stop-shop for designers. Apparel Sourcing is a great starting point for new designers developing their labels or collections,” states John P. Gallagher, President & CEO of Messe Frankfurt, Inc. “Many of our attendees, new designers and big box brands, walked both shows to find new vendors.”

Messe Frankfurt organizes the International Apparel Sourcing Show together with the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT TEX). Mr. Lin Yunfeng, vice chairman of CCPIT TEX says, “We are very pleased to witness the growing-up and upgrade of Apparel Sourcing.

"The American economy is picking up and brings new market demand to international suppliers including Chinese manufactures. There were a high percentage of repeat Chinese exhibitors. Their presentation at the show massively displayed the new image of Chinese textile and apparel industry and also demonstrates their long term commitment to the US market.”

Attendees raved about the new companies and countries represented on the show floor. Among the popular destinations were the larger Mauritius Pavilion and the new Colombia Pavilion. Co-location continues to be a success with buyers walking both shows in order to view the entire supply chain for sourcing.

Texworld USA’s show partner, Lenzing, organized a well attended seminar series that covered topics from fiber formation, denim as the new frontier to sourcing in the Americas. Among the most popular seminars was the trend forecasting session led by trend specialist, Cassandra Tsaknis with Stylesight.

Another popular session among our buyers was the Small Business development session led by Mercedes Gonzalez, Director of Global Purchasing Companies. The workshop covered an emerging designer’s step-by-step guide to reaching out to buyers.
