The third edition of the Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada (ATSC), which will take place from August 20 to 22, 2018, in Canada, will reportedly double the size of its floor space and add a few new product categories as well.
Accessories, giftware, home electronics, footwear, luggage and housewares and general merchandise are major the additions to this year’s textile event.
“The rising interest in the event among Canadian people resulted in the growth of ATSC which debuted in 2016,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications. According to Prescott, new show features and offerings will take ATSC 2018 to the next level.
More than 20 countries from around the world including Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, US, UK, Turkey, Switzerland, Spain, Nepal and more will showcase the latest textile and garment innovations at around 600 booths at the event.
This year, the apparel fair will also witness the debut of the Chinese labels in ‘China Brand Show’ as part of the ATSC. Light manufactured products and household electronics will be put on display by more than 100 Chinese enterprises in 150 booths.
The addition of new categories in this year’s event is likely to attract visitors from a wide variety of industries and simultaneously keep textile and apparel in focus. The event is likely to be attended by more than 5,000 retailers, manufacturers, designers, buyers and business representatives.
A major conference on various industry issues will also take place concurrently at the show.
Markedly, Apparel Textile Sourcing will also organise a sister show in Miami (Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada Miami) this May.
The international trade show debuted in 2016 and serves as an opportunity for Canadian importers, manufacturers, retailers, designers and small businesses to get a first-hand look at global fashions, fabrics and textures that are in trend.
