New York City – Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, co-located with Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA, commenced in a new hall at the Javits Convention Center this July 22, 2019. For three days, the annual expo presented the latest trends in materials and finished soft goods categories and textiles for all home applications. Opening its doors to visitors and international suppliers from around the globe, the expo showcased textiles and finished soft home goods in over ten categories for industry buyers, designers and experts.
This edition also featured over 100 exhibitors representing 9 countries and hundreds of visitors. The show presented textiles, along with innovative structures in product categories covering bath, bed, window and more. While sourcing the colors, trends, materials, fabrics for home, attendees had the exclusive opportunity to network and meet designers and suppliers from around the world while taking advantage of complimentary educational seminars presented by Home Textiles Today that took place in a new location, the Home Textiles Symposium.
“This summer, we offered an exciting array of exhibitors from countries such as India, Korea, Poland, and Turkey, along with an expanded educational series with top speakers from Home Textiles Today, Global Organic Textile Standard for attendees and exhibitors alike. Overall, the show provided attendees with new knowledge on upcoming trends, the ever-evolving home textile industry and new ways to expand their business,” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director.
Home Textiles Sourcing provided attendees with a wide list of exhibitors specializing in seven main product categories: Bed, Bath, Fabric, Floor Coverings, Kitchen Linen, Table Linen, and Window. Educational events were centered on the hard facts about the soft home textiles business in America, covering the state of the home textile business today as global trading challenges, international politics, shopping patterns and the emergence of sustainability and eco issues change the dynamics of the business. Among the many offerings, Home and Textiles Today led two crowd pleasing panel discussions on 'Reshaping of the Textile Supply Chain - Is it Sustainable?’ and 'The New Sourcing Model: Are You Prepared to Adapt?’ On the final day of the show, the Global Organic Textile Standard shared how to validate organic claims while meeting CSR goals.
The next edition of Home Textiles Sourcing will be July 20-22, 2020.
