International Apparel Sourcing Show to be held in NYC
Jun '10
Leading international exhibition organizer, Messe Frankfurt, is launching the International Apparel Sourcing Show, a dedicated sourcing marketplace for American manufacturers, trading companies, wholesalers, retailers, agents, designers and buying offices looking for the best apparel manufacturers to source finished goods or contract manufacturing. The event will be launched in partnership with “CCPIT TEX” The Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Council for the Promotion of international Trade.

“The premise of the event is a positioning of a high-quality sourcing arena in the heart of the fashion and apparel industry,” commented David Audrain, President of Messe Frankfurt North America. “Our partnerships throughout China and greater Asia will grant American attendees access to a great opportunity of new resources over a three day period, significantly more access than they would have over several weeks or months on the road.”

While the event is founded on Messe Frankfurt's partnership with CCPIT TEX and reflects their focus on supporting the development of the textile industry, this opportunity for a true international showcase provides the basis for an event that attracts strong contingents from a myriad of key apparel manufacturing centers throughout the world.

The International Apparel Sourcing Show is the only event on the East Coast, New York City being the international crossroads, focused on sourcing finished apparel and contract manufacturing. In addition, the event provides the opportunity for American companies to develop private label programs - currently a major part of the world's retail assortment strategy - and access to original design manufacturing programs which put American companies in contact with a hugely talented pool of international apparel manufacturers with the ability to commit minimum orders within the reach of medium-size multi-unit retailers to mid-tier branded apparel marketers.

Product groups and trend displays at the International Apparel Sourcing Show will include childrenswear, womenswear, menswear, activewear, knits, wovens, denim/jeans, collections, suiting, contemporary, intimates/lingerie, loungewear/sleepwear as well as private label, ODM and contract manufacturing.

“New York City is the heart of the fashion and apparel industry, and we are confident that we have a terrific opportunity to build a highquality sourcing show here,” commented David Pennes, Sales Consultant to Messe Frankfurt North America.

The first International Apparel Sourcing Show will launch July 13 - 15, 2010 at the Javits Convention Center in New York, New York. The show will continue as an annual event taking place every summer alongside both Texworld USA and Home Textiles Fabric Sourcing Expo to create the most important sourcing destination for the marketplace.
