Los Angeles plans for GlobalTex
Jun '08
Market Center Management Company (MCMC), the management company of leading wholesale trade centers and trade events in the United States and internationally, yesterday announced in a press conference held in downtown Los Angeles plans for GlobalTex, a new international textile show.

GlobalTex, endorsed by the Textile Association of Los Angeles (TALA), will be held twice annually at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) with the first show April 21 – 23, 2009 and the following October 13 – 15, 2009.

GlobalTex will launch as the largest apparel fabrics and materials show in the United States and on par with the best designed international shows in Europe and Asia. The show will offer buyers a complete market for their sourcing needs including fabric, trimmings, supplies and technology.

Los Angeles was chosen as the show location because it is home to the largest selection of textiles and notions in the United States and offers a superior convention center facility and international airport. The global textile industry is expected to grow to $655 billion by 2010, indicating the need for a comprehensive international show on the west coast.

The TALA endorsement ensures a critical mass of quality exhibitors and furthers the educational and networking aspects of the trade event. Specially organized seminars and special events will complement the exhibition of resources. The LACC will efficiently serve exhibitors and buyers with a location large enough to unify exhibitors in a single space creating a high-energy environment and the opportunity to grow the show from year-to-year.
