Following the success of its inaugural show past spring, Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami (ATSM) – the largest apparel and textile sourcing show in the Southern US and Latin America – will have its second edition in Miami during May 20–22, 2019, in expanded form. The show will host more than 300 international and domestic manufacturing companies.

Produced by JP Communications, publishers of TopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com, ATSM 2019 – which has attracted the attention and support of manufacturers and industry partners across the globe – has received a $2 million investment infusion to support its growth from 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.

The 2019 event – which presents three days of networking, seminars and fashion shows and connects Southeastern US, the Americas and the Caribbean to the production world of apparel, textile, and fashion – will have a display of a wide range of products and process solutions in the field of manufacturing and sourcing services.

“We at ATSM 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 ATSM.

In addition to CCCT, international partners include Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and 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 Organisation of El Salvador (PROESA) and PRO MEXICO.

“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.”

CCCT chairman Cao Jiachang said 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,” he explained.

Prescott added that “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,” he said, citing as examples ATSM notable buyers from Kate Spade, HSN, Perry Ellis, Zara, Gap, Chico’s, Macy’s, Disney, Zumba, Fountainbleau, Hard Rock, Royal Caribbean, Levi’s and Westgate Resorts.

ATSM 2019 will have conference and educational sessions featuring industry experts who will cover fashion trends, new technology applications such as AI and 3D printing, sourcing tips, sustainability, eCommerce strategy, international trade policy, and marketing techniques.

There will be a special runway presentation showcasing local up-and-coming fashion talent, established South Florida designers and what’s hot from the exhibition floor, matchmaking services provided by TopTenWholsale.com and Manufacturer.com to help connect interested buyers with suppliers, many of whom accept small orders, new sourcing markets pavilion displaying more than 100 unique products from emerging markets including Inner Mongolia, East Africa, India, the Philippines, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, LATAM Markets Pavilion featuring hundreds of unique products from emerging markets in Latin America, including Mexico, Columbia, Peru and Honduras, and Streetwear Pavilion showcasing a curated collection of streetwear.

The show will also have a fabric and trim section presenting a large selection of all that’s trending in fabrics and trims, and a swim and resort section, a brand new area showing the latest active wear, athleisure, resort and swimwear. (SV)
