June 23, 2016 - United States Of America
Returning to the Javits Convention Center in New York City, Texworld USA will once again open its doors to exhibitors and attendees alike on July 12, 2016. Continuing through July 14, the 10th anniversary edition of the premier North American fabric sourcing show promises to be the most exciting yet, with a brand new international pavilion, the most diverse product group offering to date, and a dedicated focus on sustainable
and eco-friendly products.
Texworld USA’s summer 2016 edition will feature over 500 international exhibitors representing 15 countries, including the US, the UK, China, Indonesia, Lebanon, Japan, Canada, Colombia, India and more. Alongside the returning Turkey and Taiwan pavilions, a brand new Korea pavilion presented by KTTA will make its debut on the show floor.
Once again, the Lenzing Innovations pavilion will return to Texworld USA with 25 exhibitors focused on incorporating sustainable fibres into a wide range of product categories.
“Through our new selection committee process we have ensured that the quality of our exhibitors and their offerings is the highest we have ever presented at Texworld USA,” said show director Jennifer Bacon. “In addition, we have listened to what the industry is demanding and we have continued to expand our functional fabric, denim and eco-friendly categories.”
As always, attendees will have the opportunity to source fabrics, trims and accessories for every type of product line – women, men, juniors and children’s wear -- across a total of 16 product groups, including the brand new “faux fur” category and an expanded functional fabrics category.
This July will also mark Texworld USA’s 10 year anniversary and 10 years of fruitful partnership with Lenzing Innovation. Throughout the last decade, Lenzing Innovation has remained at the core of Texworld USA and has vitally contributed to the show’s growth through consistent delivery of high quality exhibitors and over 200 educational seminars for industry engagement.
“Since the launch of Texworld USA ten years ago, Lenzing Innovation has been a vital supporter and partner in this event”, said Dennis Smith, president, Messe Frankfurt North America. “Through the impressive quality of textile
mills exhibiting in the Lenzing Innovation Pavilion and a prestigious group of speakers recruited for the Lenzing Seminar Series, the North American team led by Tricia Carey has shown incredible loyalty and support for this sourcing platform.”
In addition to celebrating 10 years in business, exciting new exhibitors and product categories, the summer 2016 edition of Texworld USA will feature an enhanced focus on sustainability
. Taking note of recent industry discussions and the increased importance of sustainable
sourcing to both consumers and designers, Texworld USA has increased its focus on the topic.
Attendees will be able to discover over 35 exhibitors offering sustainable and eco-friendly textiles and on-site recycled fibre demonstrations courtesy of Repreve and the #TurnItGreen tour interactive trailer.
