Following the enormous success of its inaugural show this past spring, the Apparel Textile Sourcing (ATS) has announced its return to Miami in 2019, double in size and bringing thousands of domestic as well as international visitors. The three-day exhibition beginning May 20, 2019, has a $2 million investment infusion to support its growth.

The financial assistance from organisers JP Communications and the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile and Apparel (CCCT), the largest textile and apparel trade agency in both China and the world, will help ATS in expansion.

The exhibition will host conference and educational sessions, special runway presentation, matchmaking services, new sourcing markets pavilion and fabric & trim section among others. Categories will include finished apparel for men, women and children that range from leisure, formal, denim, active, swim, intimates and performance. Also featured will be homewares and linens, hardware and textiles that include cotton, knits, yarns, leather, synthetic and blends.

The one-of-a-kind show will brings together inspirational leaders and industry experts from the apparel, manufacturing, retail and affiliated business industries to educate, network and share market intelligence, discuss pressing topics and engage in conversations that energise the flow of global commerce.

ATS Miami will present three days of networking, seminars and fashion shows connecting Southeastern US, the Americas and the Caribbean to the production world of apparel, textile, and fashion. It will host more than 300 international and domestic manufacturing companies exhibiting a wide range of products and process solutions in the field of manufacturing and sourcing services.

"We at ATS are so grateful for the support of all our international partners, and our community and business partners in South Florida, each of whom has been instrumental in helping us make this show a success and with whom we look forward to growing,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of ATS Miami.

"The Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami Show will bring a large number of domestic and international industry decision makers to our community, promote Florida as a premier destination for the industry and stimulate the local economy," said Manny Mencia, senior vice president of International Trade and Development for Enterprise Florida, which has committed its promotional support for 2019. "The apparel sector remains very important to Florida’s international economy. In 2017, nearly $8 billion in apparel trade flowed through Florida ports and airports."

"The 2019 show will see participation from popular branded companies from across Asia in addition to a wide range of suppliers and products. These are all highly successful, leading apparel brands in China, looking for US partners to represent them in America and help grow their brands globally," CCCT chairman Cao Jiachang said.

"This is an unprecedented opportunity for buyers in the US and Latin America to source and negotiate licensing rights with these never-before-seen innovative brands. Thousands of top buyers from more than 40 countries are expected to attend ATSM 2019 to source, connect and develop lasting relationships with qualified international and domestic suppliers," added Jiachang.

In addition to CCCT, international partners include Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) , Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), Wool and Woolens Export Promotion Council (WWEPC),  Export Promotion Bureau of Bangladesh (EPB), Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers Exporters Association (BGMEA), VESTEX Guatemala, Export and Investment Promotion Organization of El Salvador (PROESA) and PRO MEXICO, among many others.
