The fourth edition of the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo was once again co-located with Texworld USA and the International Apparel Sourcing Show. The three co-located events drew in a total of 731 exhibitors and welcomed 5,292 attendees.
“The co-location of Home Textiles Sourcing Expo with Texworld USA in July continues to gain traction with sourcing professionals as they are able to cross source between the two shows. We expect the importance of the individual events to grow within each industry helping to draw more buyers and resources to the New York City area,” states John P. Gallagher, President & CEO of Messe Frankfurt USA.
Messe Frankfurt organizes the show in partnership with the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT TEX). Lin Yunfeng, vice chairman of CCPIT TEX says, “We are very pleased to witness the grown-up and upgrade of the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo.
"The American economy is picking up and brings new market demand to international suppliers including Chinese manufactures. There was a high percentage of repeat Chinese exhibitors. Their presentation at the show massively displayed the new image of Chinese textile and apparel industry and also demonstrates their long term committment to the US market.”
