SPESA - The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA) will host the third biennial edition of its SPESA VIP Networking Event on May 13, 2014 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta Georgia.
 
Held in conjunction with the co-located Texprocess Americas, Techtextil North America and JEC Show Americas tradeshow events, the popular opening evening event will provide show exhibitors and attendees with an exclusive opportunity to dine and network with fashion, sewn products, and technical textile industry leaders and peers. 
 
According to SPESA President Benton Gardner, “The SPESA VIP Networking Event has become one of the most enjoyable and rewarding functions in our industry. Expanding on a very successful 2012 event with more than 450 attendees, this year’s event is designed to be bigger and better in every way. By popular demand, we will also be returning to the magical Georgia Aquarium venue this year. We invite the industry to come and take part in a fabulous evening.” 
 
Following the opening day of the shows, the nearby VIP experience will include an open bar and award-winning restaurant-quality cuisine provided by Wolfgang Puck Catering. The Oceans Ballroom venue features two large aquatic observation windows were attendees will get face-to-face with exotic fish and animals from every corner of the globe. 
 
As always, a portion of the proceeds from the event will help support the future of our industry though the AAFA Education Foundation (American Apparel and Footwear Association). Gerber Technology is the Scholar Sponsor of the 2014 event. Other event sponsors include American & Efird, Alvanon, Durkopp Adler/Pfaff Industrial, Messe Frankfurt, and Methods Workshop.
