Home Textiles Sourcing Expo closes with record exhibitor

Aug '12
After three days filled with plenty business talks and busy show aisles, Home Textiles Sourcing Expo closed its doors on July 26 with excellent results. The event drew 146 exhibitors from 13 countries, an 11 percent increase over July 2011. The third edition of Home Textiles Sourcing Expo was again co-located with Texworld USA, the largest apparel fabrics show in North America, and the International Apparel Sourcing Show. The triple event as a whole welcomed 5,285 attendees, a 5 percent increase over July 2011.

“Based on these results, Home Textiles Sourcing Expo has certainly reinforced its position as a leading sourcing event in North America to solely focus on fabrics and finished soft goods for all home applications,“ says John. P. Gallagher, President & CEO of Messe Frankfurt USA. “Thanks to our partners and the show’s co-location with the apparel events, we achieved yet another attendee and exhibitor record.“ Messe Frankfurt organizes the show in partnership with the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT TEX).

Mr. LinYunfeng from CCPIT says, “This edition of the show marks the rally of local market demand. The exhibitors of China Pavilion are stratified with the quality of attendees. This show will be playing a more important role in bridging Chinese manufacturers and the American business community.”
 
Lenzing Fibers continued to partner with Messe Frankfurt for the third edition of Home Textiles Sourcing Expo and supported the show with the popular Lenzing Innovation Pavilion. “As a leading producer of fibers, this Home Textiles Sourcing Expo is a very important platform to showcase our Tencel and MicroModal fibers use in every aspect of bedding and also the innovations in new product categories including upholstery and carpeting for the home that our customers are able to achieve to U.S buyers, designers, merchandisers and sourcing professionals,” says Nina Nadash from Lenzing AG.
 
Lenzing also organized a well attended seminar program in partnership with Messe Frankfurt. Among the many highly praised seminars, Mark Woodman from Global Color Research introduced attendees to the latest Home Textiles Sourcing Expo Trends by using themes from the acclaimed Heimtextil Montage. Other popular seminar topics included “Sourcing Hot Spots” and “Mega Trends for Fall/Winter 2013”.
 
New for 2012, was the trend forum collaboration with Global Color Research. Global Color Research was the curator of the trends on display in January at Heimtextil in Frankfurt. Four color stories, from the official Heimtextil trend book ‘Montage’, set the stage for the latest in trend themes for the upcoming season.
