Representatives from over 20 countries will visit the Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada (ATSC) show to unveil their trending apparel and textiles. The show will be held in Toronto's International Centre from August 21-23. The participating textile manufacturers will showcase their latest products and production processes to forge new business relationships.

Manufacturers from countries like China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, the US, the UK, Canada, Turkey, Jordan, Switzerland, Vietnam, Nepal and more are expected to attend the ATSC show.

For the first time, thanks to the partnership between ATSC and TFO Canada, Canadians will also get a sneak peek – and first grabs at import opportunities – of unique artisanal apparel, textiles and related goods from eight Least Developed Countries (LDCs) – Madagascar, Uganda, Lesotho, Ethiopia, Haiti, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Nepal.

TFO Canada, which creates sustainable trade partnerships for exporters from developing countries to promote small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the specialty textile and garment sector, has announced that it will bring 30 SMEs to this year’s event to showcase the organisation’s Artisan Hub initiative.

"This Canada based sourcing show is the opportunity we have been waiting for. This is a 'can't miss' opportunity for buyers who are looking for unique products. We are excited to be working in partnership with ATSC," said Steve Tipman, executive director of TFO Canada.

"This show is an unprecedented opportunity for Canadian importers, manufacturers, retailers, designers and small businesses to get a first-hand look, without leaving their home turf, at the global fashions, fabrics and textures that consumers will be after in the coming year," said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, North America's leading publisher of B2B trade platforms TopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com and organiser of ATSC.

As the Canadian demand for apparel increases, goods are increasingly coming from abroad. According to the Government of Canada Apparel Industry Profile, apparel imports are up by $3.4 billion or 8.3 per cent annually (average), totalling $12.5 billion in 2015. Domestic demand for apparel has increased annually since 2011.

A comprehensive trade show and conference, ATSC is supported by many international governmental associations, headed by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile and Apparel (CCCT) and the Bangladesh High Commission, led by Dewan Mahmud, first secretary (commercial) at Bangladesh High Commission. The 2017 show will see a larger delegation of exhibitors and speakers from both China and Bangladesh after the show's successful debut last August. (KD)
