Unique biz opportunities at Supply Chain of the Americas, SPESA EXPO
Jun '09
The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA) announces plans to expand its May 18-20, 2010 SPESA EXPO event in Atlanta, Georgia through the addition of a special “Supply Chain of the Americas” exhibit that will highlight the unique business opportunities and wide-ranging resources available to sewn products manufacturers, brand marketers, and vertical retailers in the region.

Comprising textiles and components, design and development services, production and logistics providers, country and industry association pavilions and more, the new exhibit will complement what is already the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of sewn products equipment, technology, and education in the Western Hemisphere. Supply Chain of the Americas will expand the event's coverage to the entire concept-to-delivery fashion and sewn products lifecycle by highlighting innovation in design, development, engineering, sourcing, production, logistics, distribution, and other key business processes.

The new Supply Chain of the Americas exhibit is also expected to attract a significantly broader audience to the triennial event, which has historically focused primarily on equipment and machinery exhibits. “Interest in producing in close proximity to the U.S. market is growing,” noted SPESA managing director Dave Gardner.

“By expanding the scope of SPESA EXPO, we are working to fill the need that sewn products manufacturers, brands, and retailers have to better understand the opportunities and identify the resources available to them in the Western Hemisphere. We believe that, as the largest fashion and sewn products technology and educational event in the region, SPESA EXPO is the perfect venue to bring together the complete range of products, services, and resources available to companies that consider the Americas as part of their supply chain strategy.”

For the first time ever at SPESA EXPO, the Supply Chain of the Americas exhibit will welcome the full range of product and service resources that serve sewn products manufacturers, brands, and retailers; including fabrics and textiles, trims and components, textile and screen printing, trend and design, product development and engineering, CAD/CAM, spreading and cutting, contract and package providers, laundry and garment dying, logistics and distribution, product identification and labeling, testing and compliance, sourcing and supply chain, fit and sizing, consulting and education, and other related products and services.
