Following the unforeseen decision to move January’s shows completely virtual, the east coast’s premier sourcing event excitingly returns to the traditional face-to-face format this July. The in-person shows are set to include brand new product categories, invigorated specialty sections, and a robust offering of networking and educational opportunities.
As a key element and attendee favorite, Textile Talks and the Lenzing Seminar Series will also return live on the show floor with an impressive speaker line-up and tailored industry topics. Texworld NYC’s educational program continues to offer insightful and informative sessions for every role and level of experience across all segments of the industry that include topics that are necessary in today’s environment. In addition to live education, attendees can also discover the trends for F/W 23-24 in the Texworld Trend Showcase curated by New York-based trend agency, TOBE/The Doneger Group.
Texworld NYC, Apparel Sourcing NYC, and Home Textiles Sourcing will continue creating opportunities to support the textile community by connecting global manufacturers and suppliers to the US market with hybrid format options: the Sourcing Showroom and the Virtual Platform. This innovative exhibition concept offers those exhibitors still facing travel restrictions the ability to showcase their textiles and finished goods without physically being present at the event. Buyers can return to sourcing, in-person, while still afforded the ability to communicate with participating exhibitors across the virtual platform through matchmaking and one-on-one chat capabilities. Due to the newly issued requirements and extended restrictions, many exhibitors from China and other international regions will be represented in the Sourcing Showroom this July.
To meet market demands, there is an increase of exhibitors representing countries outside of China including Turkey, Egypt, Taiwan, and India. Stemming from this growth, Home Textiles Sourcing will return welcoming an Egyptian Pavilion. Egypt is well-recognized for their cotton production and are major producers of high-quality silks, linen, and wool.
Registration for attendees is set to open in April. The event will be held in New York City at the Javits Convention Center, July 19-21, 2022. For more detailed information, please visit us online.
