The Los Angeles International Textile Show, which took place at the California Market Center (CMC) from April 14-16, 2009 was successful for exhibitors and buyers alike The Show saw an expanded seminar schedule, two trend galleries, over 200 exhibitors on the Penthouse show floor and a Korean Textile Pavilion Presented by KTTA. The final day of the Show ended on a high note with a Student Scholarship Awards Ceremony and Trend Presentation by Fashion Group International.

Exhibitors during the LA Textile Show featured companies from around the globe including US, UK, Greece, Italy, France, Turkey, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Africa, Brazil and more, exhibiting Fabrics and Leathers (in Luxe, Casual, Tailored, Innovation and Décor style categories), creative trim/notions/accessories, print design studios and art services, trend forecasting and color services, embroidery, dyeing and production services, apparel design software and tech solutions, and sourcing and manufacturing packages.

Renee Lasky of Gemma Trimmings remarked, “We were happy with the show....a lot of people stopped by our booth, and we plan on having a lot of new business as a result.”

Added to this Show was an additional Trend Gallery on the Penthouse Floor in addition to the Trend Gallery in the Main Atrium. “We wanted to give visitors a preview of the Trend Gallery when they first enter the show in the Main Atrium, and then continue their experience with the additional exhibits on the show floor in the Penthouse,” said Chelsea Matthews, Senior Tradeshow Manager. “We added a few different displays, and really wanted to insure that buyers were able to interact with the exhibits throughout their visit to the LA Textile Show.”

“We were quite pleased with the show traffic. As can be expected, certain times of the day were slower than others but overall we were happy and we opened many new accounts,” reported Kelly Langlois of Pine Crest Fabrics.

Samir Masri of Fabric Avenue concurred, “We always get new orders at the Los Angeles International Textile Show.”

The Show's expanded seminar schedule and trend presentations included seminars from Peclers Paris, Design Options, Lenzing Fabrics Inc. & Murata Machinery USA Inc., WGSN, Fashion Snoops, Fashion Business Inc. (FBI), Promostyl, Woolworks International, Cotton Inc., About Sources, Fashion Business Inc., and more.

AIMS Software & Focal Technology Solutions sponsored an Internet Lounge in the Penthouse that provided buyers with complimentary Internet access during show hours as well as coffee and pastries from 9am to 11am. In the afternoon, attendees enjoyed complimentary massages as well as a selection of industry publications.

“We were very happy with this LA Int'l Textile Show. We had an especially great turn out from local and regional designers placing orders. Many of our exhibitors were pleased with the business they wrote and also mentioned they are looking forward to returning for the September/October 2009 Show when we co-locate with Material World and Technology Solutions,” said Joanne Lee, Senior Vice President of CMC Services.
