Texworld USA, alongside Apparel Sourcing USA, has opened its 2020 summer edition virtually. Traditionally held at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, the Summer Event is opening to a larger audience for three days of sourcing, education and networking. The virtual show runs from July 21 through July 23.

“The industry was searching for an alternative solution to reach global suppliers during these challenging times. As evidenced by the tremendous support from participating companies, exhibitors and attendees, Texworld USA is that solution. We have always been dedicated to providing a platform for the textile sourcing community, and we are excited to continue to do so now until we are able to meet again face-to-face,” stated Jennifer Bacon, show director, Fashion and Apparel, Messe Frankfurt North America.

Together, Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA cover nearly 40 different product categories. All of which will be represented on the virtual platform with more than 20,000 product listings. Visitors can take advantage of the AI-powered matchmaking capabilities to get a list of recommended textile suppliers, set up video meetings and chat to cultivate stronger business relationships.

In total, 12 educational sessions covering a host of globally relevant topics will be streamed during the three-day live event.

Held alongside Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA is the co-located event, Home Textiles Sourcing, for those manufacturers, retailers, converters, contract specifiers, and designers seeking fabrics and products for their latest projects.
