Canadaâ€™s first Apparel Textile Sourcing trade show, which will bow Aug 22-24 in Toronto to have garment factories and fabric mills from around the world, show at the inaugural, according to JP Communications Inc., parent company toTopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com, which is producing the trade show.
Produced in coordination with the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textile and Apparel (CCCT), the expo will give Canadian retailers and manufacturers access to apparel and textile manufacturers from China, India, Bangladesh, Mexico, the USA, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mauritius, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Jordan, Peru and Myanmar.
This event is a new project started for the promotion of global textile and apparel trade by CCCT, said Jiang Hui, CCCT chairman. Based on a comprehensive analysis of the international textile and apparel market, they are convinced the Canadian Apparel Textile Sourcing Expo will become an efficient and convenient trade platform for the global textile and apparel industry.
Jason Prescott, chief executive officer of TopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com, in a statement said that they are honored to have received such a distinguished and globally significant opportunity. Their brands have been connecting millions online since 2005, and now they are able to serve their growing community offline in Toronto this summer as well as with other major events they will be producing.
Bob Kirke, executive director of the Canadian Apparel Federation, said that the Expo will fill a void in the market. Canada has needed a trade show where apparel and textile importers and retailers can learn about sourcing best practices while meeting international producers from around the world. The event offers an important new resource for their domestic market, and they are excited to support this endeavor.
In addition to the exhibition floor, the expo will feature a slate of seminars covering issues such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, industry best practices, the changing Canadian market and sourcing tips.
Canada imports over $14 billion in apparel and textiles annually, between 2012-14 Canadian apparel and textile imports increased by 20 percent.
