Apparel Textile Sourcing Virtual (ATS Virtual), the premier virtual trade show, has re-connected, from May 25 to 29, the apparel and textile sourcing world for the first time since Covid-19 pandemic shut down business and travel. More than 100 international manufacturers and over 1,500 attendees from over 35 countries took part in ATS Virtual’s debut show. 
“Retail is slowly beginning to re-open in North America, but international travel bans and face-to-face meeting restrictions are still bottle-necking traditional methods of trade. The apparel industry is built on long-distance connections, international travel, and sourcing,” Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, producers of ATS Trade Shows, said in a press release.
The virtual format and timing were ideal for companies who need to connect and source directly. Brands, retailers, entrepreneurs, and designers were eager to try something new, interact together and get back to business,”
Major brands and retailers signed up for this unique virtual event, including Nike, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, REI, Giant Tiger, Grafton Apparel, Bealls, Burton, Canada Sportswear, brrr!, Li & Fung and many more. 
Over 100 apparel and textile manufacturers interactive booths were featured virtually, stocked full of ready-to-order apparel, textiles, home textiles, and fashion accessories. In addition to the virtual exhibition booths and thousands of available readymade apparel and textile fabrics, attendees received direct access to fully interactive live broadcasting with manufacturers, expert-led seminars and free professional matchmaking.
All 20 ATS virtual seminars were made available on Zoom, Facebook Live, and via the ATS Virtual Live Broadcast Room. The ATS Virtual event promoted education through three tracts of expert-led sessions and panels, covering industry, sustainability, and fashion.
