Magic apparel show to add home textiles
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, May 2, 2012
Las Vegas - Sourcing at Magic - the showcase for more than 800 apparel, accessories and footwear resources that runs in tandem with the formidable Magic apparel show here - will add a dedicated home textiles area this summer.
Sourcing at Magic Home is being developed in tandem with the China Foreign Trade Guanzghou Exhibition General Corp (CFTE), one of China's chief exhibition organizations.
The show will take place Aug. 20-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"Sourcing at Magic Home builds on the sourcing expertise of Magic and will showcase both the broad base of Chinese manufacturers CFTE brings, as well as contract and original design manufacturers, component suppliers, and service providers from the global home textiles community as a whole," said Karalynn Sprouse, vp of Sourcing at Magic.
The home textiles division will also include exhibitors from the U.S., China, Bangladesh and India, she said. Products on offer will encompass fabrics, materials and components for home application (bed, bath and kitchen linens, towels, window treatments, rugs and accessories).
Deying Li, general manager of CFTE who has worked for China's Canton Fair for more than 20 years, said: "Canton Fair is China's biggest trade fair, and Magic is the largest, most well-known fashion tradeshow in the U.S. So for us, and we believe for attendees, Sourcing at Magic Home is the perfect marriage."
The Sourcing at Magic show draws more than 10,000 attendees. For more information, visit www.magiconline.com or contact Ana Uribe at (310) 857-7653 or email@example.com.
