Set for July 22-24, 2019, the Home Textiles Sourcing Expo will welcome exhibitors and buyers at a brand new location at the Javits Convention Center. For the first time in history, the show will take place in bustling main level exhibition halls. As a long-term joint venture partnership between Messe Frankfurt and CCPIT-TEX, the show is the only trade event in North America to focus solely on home textiles and finished soft goods for all home applications. Home Textiles Sourcing Expo has become a go-to event for manufacturers, retailers, and designers searching for the perfect fabric or manufacturing resources for their next home collection. The 2019 edition will showcase home products in over nine categories including bed, bath, table linen, floor coverings, window, fabric, kitchen linen, walls, and design and technology.
Home Textiles Sourcing Expo Summer 2019 takes place alongside Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA and will feature a wide variety of exhibitors and countries including China, Korea, Turkey, Hong Kong, and India. Among many others, this year’s show also welcomes Poland and Turkmenistan for the first time. “As a global leader in the home textiles market, we’re excited to highlight a diverse mix of countries in this show. US consumers demand both local and outside representation when it comes to industry trade shows, and we’re thrilled to share that a record number of exhibitors across the globe are participating in the 2019 Home Textiles Sourcing Expo” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director.
In addition to the ever-popular complimentary educational seminars taking place at Texworld USA, attendees will also have access to discussions that cover a variety of different topics relevant to the home textile industry. These topics include: the current state of the home textile business as global trading challenges arise and shopping patterns change led by industry experts, along with the re-shaping of the textiles supply chain led by Home Textiles Today.
Kicking off the show with a compelling line up on Monday, July 22, textile industry experts will share the hard truths about the soft home textiles business state in America in a thorough panel discussion. Then, on Tuesday, July 23, Home Textiles Today will lead two discussions addressing the bottom line questions of how to remain sustainable in the textiles supply chain and how to prepare companies to adapt. In a deep discussion, the expert panelist will share insight on consumer hot-button issues, how consumers are integrating sustainable products into healthy lifestyles, how leading suppliers are addressing the changes, and much more.
Finally on July 24, leaders from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) will share their perspective on how to validate organic claims while meeting corporate social responsibility goals. Attendees can learn about U.S. regulations for organic textile labelling and how to use the GOTS to substantiate organic claims and retain customers’ trust.
