Apparel Textile Sourcing Expo is set to make its debut in Canada this year. The three-day expo organised in coordination with the China chamber of commerce for import and export of textile and apparel (CCCT) will be held from August 22 in Toronto, the organisers said in a media release.

The expo would connect Canada's retailers with the world's major apparel and textile manufacturers on a single platform without the time or expense travelling outside the borders of Canada.

The event would also provide a comprehensive seminar tract led by acclaimed industry and government experts covering topics likes the TPP, best practices, the changing Canadian market, tips on how to choose whom to work with overseas, and much more.

JP Communications, parent company of Manufacturer.com and TopTenwholesale.com, has been awarded the exclusive contract to produce the expo. “We are honoured to have received such a distinguished and globally significant opportunity, our brands have been connecting millions online since 2005 and now we are able to serve our growing community offline in Toronto this summer as well as with other major events we will be producing,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of TopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com.

“Canada has needed a trade show where apparel and textile importers and retailers can learn about sourcing best practices while meeting international producers from around the world.  The event offers an important new resource for our domestic market and we are excited to support this endeavour,” said Bob Kirke, Canadian apparel federation executive director.

Confirming China's participation in the event, Jiang Hui, chairman of CCCT said, “This event is a new project started for the promotion of global textile and apparel trade by CCCT.  Based on a comprehensive analysis of the international textile and apparel market, we are convinced that the Canadian apparel and textile sourcing expo will become an efficient and convenient trade platform for the global textile and apparel industry.”

Textile and apparel companies from China, India, Bangladesh, Mexico, US, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mauritius, Honduras, Jordan, Peru, Burma, Myanmar, Colombia and Guatemala are expected to participate in the expo. (NA)
