"The growth of ATS Canada – which debuted in 2016 – is the result of increased interest among the Canadian public in manufacturing and importing apparel and textiles, as well as the general growth of international trade of higher-quality, ethically-manufactured products,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, ATS Canada producer.
"Toronto in particular has proven to be a hot spot for a show such as ATS Canada, with its residents originating from hundreds of different countries, a thriving retail and entrepreneurial environment and the economic strength of Canada in general being an attraction for industry players globally eager to do business in this country,” Prescott added, explaining that this year’s growth follows a 50 percent expansion of the show in 2017.
Explaining that new show features and offerings will take ATS Canada 2018 to the next level, Prescott said, "The introduction to Toronto of the China Brand Show, which has seen huge success in the US after launching in 2002 in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas, is a major feat for local businesses that are poised to benefit from making unprecedented connections and securing deals with top-rate international suppliers right on their home turf."
Occupying an area of about 3,000 square metres, the China Brand Show will bring to Toronto more than 100 Chinese enterprises in 150 booths, "The diversified range of the commodities being showcased demonstrates the latest Chinese economic achievements and provides visitors with a rare opportunity to get familiarised with both China and Chinese brand products without the need to travel," said Miao Huawei, director, trade development bureau of the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM).
In addition to exhibits from Canada and China, the event is expected to feature goods from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, US, UK, Turkey, Switzerland, Spain, Nepal and more. A major conference on topical industry issues will take place simultaneously at the show.
ATSC is supported by many international governments and associations, including the Canadian Apparel Federation, the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile and Apparel (CCCT), Pro Mexico and the Bangladesh High Commission on behalf of the Export Promotion Bureau and the Bangladesh Garment and Manufacturers Export Association.
