Texworld NYC, a trade show for the textile and apparel industry, announced the expansion of its longstanding “Local Sourcing” feature area at the upcoming event in January, marking a significant milestone in the event’s commitment to addressing the escalating demand for reliable and innovative domestic sourcing choices.
As part of an initiative to empower the American supply chain, Texworld NYC is introducing a new partnership with SEAMS, which consists of more than 200 of American fashion brands, retailers, manufacturers and textile providers.
“We are thrilled to partner with Texworld NYC this January as SEAMS’ Made in America Movement continues to gain momentum and success. We look forward to adding value to this important event and meeting the participants,” says Will Duncan, executive director of SEAMS.
“SEAMS is focused on domestic manufacturing and resources, building our industry’s strength through knowledge and experienced resources, and this partnership is a perfect unified front for the industry we serve,” says Ron Roach, SEAMS president and president of Contempora Fabrics.
In addition to exploring expanded domestic sourcing offerings inside the SEAMS Supply Chain USA Pavilion, attendees can also check out new educational opportunities. Participants can also engage in discussions with SEAMS industry leaders to learn about challenges facing the industry.
“This growth is a response to the escalating demand for U.S.-based solutions, and we’re proud to partner with SEAMS to amplify this message. Together, we’re creating a dynamic space that not only showcases the best of American manufacturing but also provides a platform for meaningful conversations and collaborative learning,” says Jennifer Bacon, vice president of fashion and apparel at Messe Frankfurt Inc.
Registration is open for the co-located January event consisting of Texworld NYC, Apparel Sourcing NYC and Printsource.
