First of its kind apparel sourcing show in Canada

The Apparel Textile Sourcing Show (ATSC), the first of its kind to be ever held in Canada, will be held from August 22-24 this year in Toronto. The fair will bring together apparel and textile manufacturers from all over the world.

Organising this exhibition in Canada is significant as the North American country imports more than $14 billion in apparel and textiles annually, up 20 per cent from 2012, according to Jason Prescott, organiser of the event.

Over 200 international exhibitors from China, India, Bangladesh, Mexico, US, Honduras, and Peru will be showcasing at ATSC. Thousands of Canadian SMEs, retailers, manufacturers and designers are expected to attend the show.

“ATSC provides an unparalleled opportunity for Canadian apparel and textile importers and retailers to access the most current importing information from industry insiders and connect with the world's major apparel and textile manufacturers all under one roof, without having to incur the time or expense of travelling abroad,” said Prescott.

Three days of conference sessions led by acclaimed industry and government experts, covering topics from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and other trade agreements, to best practices and the changing Canadian market will be held at the event.

A “Made in Canada” section, featuring Canadian manufacturers who source apparel and textiles from abroad for their finished goods and Canadian designers who have their designs produced into finished products overseas will display at ATSC.

The trade event is being held in coordination with the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile and Apparel (CCCT), and is supported by the Ottawa-based Canadian Apparel Federation (CAF), the Consulate General of China in Toronto, the Trade Office of Peru, and exporting agencies ProMexico and ProColombia.
