May 17, 2021

New business relationship creates new market opportunities for exhibitors and visitors

Texworld New York City and Apparel Sourcing New York City will debut on the west coast this September. Today, Messe Frankfurt, Inc. announced a partnership with LA Textile,- the West Coast’s premier destination for textile, design, and production resources. Texworld and Apparel Sourcing will join LA Textile following a year-long pause of physical events. The highly anticipated relaunch of LA Textile will present a re-envisioned show located in California Market Center’s newly renovated Building C.

The partnership with LA Textile will include the addition of a Texworld and Apparel Sourcing branded pavilion on the show floor.  As the largest textile sourcing event on the East Coast, Texworld will add a strong international exhibitor base to LA Textile’s established US domestic and European exhibitors. The collaboration between the two expands the resources available to both of the event’s traditional buyers.  Texworld New York City’s exhibitors are comprised of global manufacturers and suppliers from around the world, including: Turkey, India, China, Korea, Portugal, Taiwan, Pakistan, and others.

“We are ecstatic to announce our collaboration with LA Textile.  Our focus has always been to seek new ways to serve the textile community through the connection of global manufacturers and US buyers. The team at LA Textile share the same vision, and I am confident that this partnership will elevate both of our platforms,” stated Jennifer Bacon, Show Director, Fashion & Apparel, Messe Frankfurt Inc.

"Community over competition has been a mantra for our team at the California Market Center," said Moriah Robinson, CMC Events Director. "Over the past few years, we've cultivated a relationship with Texworld to champion their endeavours in NYC. We're thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Texworld and provide a West Coast home for their incredible show."

LA Textile will expand upon the evolution of its recent virtual editions and present a thoughtfully curated show floor of textiles, trims, manufacturing, and resources from the worlds' leading companies. This edition will feature an emphasis on sustainability, and expansion of print design studios and manufacturing services, with complementary educational panels, trend forums, and art installations.

"We can’t wait to welcome back our LA Textile friends and family to debut new collections for the ever-evolving apparel and manufacturing industry,” said Senior Events Manager, Matthew Mathiasen. "Now more than ever, with the addition of Texworld and Apparel Sourcing, the global footprint is at our doorsteps, and we hope to bring an even greater international presence to the West Coast."
