The first edition of Texprocess Americas took place April 24 – 26, 2012 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The show was co-located with Techtextil North America and created a synergy creating the largest and best technical textiles, textile machinery, nonwovens, sewn products and equipment trade show in the Americas!

The 2012 Texprocess Americas event hosted 161 exhibitors from 11 countries including international pavilions from China and Germany, as well as a SPESA-IT and SEAMS pavillion with a total co-location attendance of 6,800 from 62 countries.

John Gallagher, President of Messe Frankfurt USA, on the conclusion of the 2012 edition commented “I am extremely pleased with the results of Texprocess Americas and Techtextil North America. Our attendees experienced three days of informative symposiums and a busy exhibit floor with business being conducted. The positive comments I heard bode well for the industry. We look forward to these events continuing to be the meeting place for these industries.”

The kick off to the event was the keynote address by Miguel Caballero, known as The Armani of Bullet Proof Clothing. Miguel's speech regarding his business and how far he has come with his innovative ideas which brought his designs to life filled the audience with excitement which they took to the show floor.

The launch of Texprocess Americas incorporated SPESA EXPO to bring to the Americas the largest and best sewn products and equipment trade show of its kind. Messe Frankfurt USA and SPESA concluded agreements in April 2010 to cooperate, co-produce and launch Texprocess Americas every even year in Atlanta. Dave Gardner, Managing Director of SPESA reported on the results of the show stating “from 2010 to 2012…what a difference two short years makes! From SPESA EXPO to Texprocess Americas.

From a business climate that was just recovering to one with more positives and more stability. From off-shoring to on-shoring. As evidenced by the inaugural 2012 edition of Texprocess Americas business is back. As the co-producer of Texprocess Americas, the SPESA association is completely pleased with and proud of our partnership with Messe Frankfurt and our agreement to merge SPESA EXPO into Texprocess Americas. As we predicted, the co-location of Texprocess Americas with Techtextil North America proved to be advantageous for our exhibiting members and for the industry as a whole. The results from this year's successful, inaugural launch of Texprocess Americas will designate this exhibition and symposium series as a “must attend” event for the entire textile and sewn products industry in the Americas.”

SPESA is the only US-based association representing suppliers of equipment, technology, and services to the sewn products industry. SPESA members are the primary exhibitors in Texprocess Americas.

Held concurrently with the exhibition and developed by industry experts the symposium contained nine sessions with more than 40 presentations in a variety of formats that covered a wide range of topics from Sourcing to the European Market, Manufacturing Technology, World Supply Chain and an International Trade Update Session.

Those who attended the symposium felt the sessions were insightful and that the speakers presented high quality presentations. One attendee, Oscar Chavarria, Director of Manufacturing, Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co., USA, stated “I thought the event was very insightful. My main purpose for attending was to gather up intel on the different market outlooks for our industry. I thought the panelists were very knowledgeable in their fields and came prepared with a well of information.”

Other attendees such as Fernando Lobo , Sr. Manager, Costing Engineering, COACH , USA, commented, ”I participated in two symposiums: New Technology and Manufacturing Technology. The quality of the material presented the high energy of the presenters and the eye-opening presentations featured a great deal of innovation and improvements to the technology throughout the years. The best part of it was that all that technology was available for all to see at the show."
