Winter 2022 edition offers impressive show features and educational opportunities

Texworld New York City and Apparel Sourcing New York City, the East Coast’s largest textile sourcing event, announced registration for its winter 2022 edition is now open.  Returning to face-to-face, the influential event will be held January 25 - 27, in the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Although the shows will open to a fully in-person event, after a successful summer premiere, the Sourcing Showroom will return as well and be incorporated into show floor exhibits to enable global suppliers’ products to be physically represented in the US marketplace, for those still facing travel restrictions. 

“Each year, Texworld New York City and Apparel Sourcing New York City provide a diverse offering of material innovations, new trends and resources. We look forward to returning to New York City in-person with an expanded show agenda and even more networking opportunities for visitors to take advantage of,” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director, Fashion & Apparel, Messe Frankfurt, Inc.

Texworld and Apparel Sourcing New York City bring together textile innovators, industry leading organizations and brand thought-leaders to deliver a robust offering of networking and educational opportunities. Providing a stage for the industry to explore high quality fabrics, trims and accessories, together the two events feature over 30 product categories and host hundreds of international exhibiting companies, historically representing Turkey, Italy, Taiwan, Korea, China and Pakistan to name a few.  This enables both visitors and exhibitors alike gain exposure to new opportunities and outlets to grow their businesses.

In addition, attendees will also find the most cutting edge information on trends.  For one day only, Texworld New York City will feature a special Trend Presentation and Tour at the Trend Showcase with Kai Chow, Creative Director at TOBE/The Doneger Group.

A key element to the show, the Winter 2022 educational program features the Lenzing Seminar Series and Textile Talks, both led by an impressive group of speakers covering trend forecasts, industry insights, supply chain policy and transparency, circularity and market intelligence over the course of three day event.  

Registration is now open.
