ITMA Showtime Fabric Market to have new pavilions

May '12
International Textile Market Association (ITMA) and International Market Centres (IMC) will launch new International Pavilions at the forthcoming semi-annual Showtime Fabric Market slated to be held from June 3-6, 2012, in the US.

The new customized Pavilions in the Suites at Market Square would cater to exhibitors from China, Taiwan and Turkey, who would join over 165 existing exhibitors that include 80 permanent showrooms and 85 temporary exhibitors.

The International Pavilions would be divided into three sections, wherein 21 firms from the three countries would feature their products at the US show for the first time.

The new entry would enhance the show's temporary exhibitor base for the June event by 24 percent, said Bob Maricich, CEO of IMC, which owns and manages Suites at Market Square.

Expressing his delight over expansion of Showtime's exhibitor base, he said from the very beginning ITMA has been extending its total support to the initiative.

He said the entry of the three countries in the US show is attributable to stagnant European economy, following which, exhibitors from the said countries are now looking at the US to grow their business.

Bob Patton, three-time President of ITMA and President of the ITMA Board of Directors, said they are elated with the triumph of the International Pavilions over a short period of time. He added that it would not have been possible for them to be as aggressive without IMC's support.

ITMA Showtime is one of the leading fabric industry trade events in the US that serves as an ideal business platform for eminent corporate professionals to interact with each other.

The event is considered to be the largest decorative items-related trade show in the Western Hemisphere, which is attended by eminent persons from the fabric, leather, and trimming industries.

Besides, it also draws participation of product researchers and some Government bodies.
