SPESA President pleased with prior exhibit sales mark
Feb '10
The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA) is pleased to announce that, with more than 3 months remaining before the event, booth sales for its May 18-20 SPESA EXPO in Atlanta, Georgia have already surpassed the total exhibit space occupied in the previous edition of the triennial event which was held in Miami Beach.

Driving the increase in floor space is the addition of several new exhibit categories for 2010, including fabrics and materials, trims and components, product development services, production and supply chain services, and information technology (IT). The historically strong SPESA EXPO machinery and equipment categories are returning en masse for the 2010 edition.

Also factoring into the expansion are a number of new special attractions including the first-ever Made in USA Supply Chain, Supply Chain of the Americas, and IT Showcase show components; as well as the updated Cool Zone v2.0 and numerous country and regional pavilions from Latin America, Asia, and Europe.

The trade group also reported that attendee registration, which recently opened online, is very strong; tracking ahead of the numbers achieved at similar intervals prior to the 2007 event. 'Textile & Sewn Products Industry Week' co-location partners and prominent textile industry events ATME-I/MEGATEX and TECHTEXTIL NORTH AMERICA are also reporting similar advance attendee results.

“We are pleased with the way both exhibitors and attendees are embracing our event,” noted SPESA President Benton Gardner. “As companies continually strive for greater product innovation and more efficient operations, SPESA EXPO serves as a valuable resource for the technology, supply chain services, and knowledge that fashion and sewn products retailers, brands, manufacturers need to succeed in 2010 and beyond. For these and other reasons, we expect to see continued strong space sales and pre-registration right up until the start of the event.”
