Jul 1, 2019

Home Textiles Sourcing Expo showcases international exhibitors in nine product categories during the July 2019 edition.

Home Textiles Sourcing Expo Summer 2019 takes place alongside Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA and will offer a wide variety of panels in this season’s edition. As a forum for networking, education, and sourcing, Home Textiles Sourcing is the only trade event in North America to focus entirely on home textiles and finished soft goods for all home applications. This summer, the educational events will take place in the Home Textiles Symposium and include topics such as the state of the home textile business today, reshaping of the textile supply chain and preparing companies to adapt, and how to validate organic claims while meeting corporate responsibility goals.

Home Textile Sourcing Expo Panels include:

The Hard Facts About the Soft Home Textiles Business in America       

Presenter: Warren Shoulberg, Contributing Editor: Forbes.com and The Robin Report

What's the state of the home textile business today as global trading challenges arise with international politics, changing U.S. demographics, shopping patterns, and the emergence of sustainability and eco issues change the dynamics of the business? Joe Derochowski of the renowned NPD market research and analytics firm and trend expert Patti Carpenter, along with moderator Warren Shoulberg will try to sort it all out in a lively, stimulating three-way conversation.  

Reshaping of the Textile Supply Chain - Is it Sustainable?
Organized by Home Textiles Today

As if the growing sustainability trend wasn't enough to manage, manufacturers and importers are also being impacted by tariff uncertainties, retail disruptions and digital innovations. It's no wonder the current product journey from factory to consumer is being deconstructed and re-worked.  With the current home textiles sourcing landscape poised for change, businesses better be ready to adapt, fast. Learn what can be done now from a panel of global supply chain experts who will discuss how leading suppliers are addressing the changes, what types of production resources are available outside the big three home producers (China, India, Pakistan), how a small-footprint on-shoring operation could be set up to improve speed to market.
