George Little Management

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.—George Little Management, LLC, the largest consumer products trade show organizer in the U.S., is bringing its expertise into the international arena with the launch of Global Home Textiles™, the only show offering overseas manufacturers an efficient and effective means to reach American home textiles decision makers.

Founded in 1924, GLM produces nearly 50 trade shows per year in the home textiles, gift, housewares, furniture, stationery and hospitality industries. The privately held firm has been involved in the home textiles industry since the 1980s, and launched the New York Home Textiles Show® in 1992. This premier showcase for the bed, bath and linen industry has enjoyed international participation for more than 10 years, with exhibitors from France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, South Africa, Turkey, Israel, Brazil, Japan, and, in recent years, exhibitors from China, India, Pakistan and Vietnam.

The Global Home Textiles show will be held May 8 to 10, 2007 in Orlando, Florida, and will be aligned with two other important trade shows, the Gourmet Housewares Show™ and the National Hardware Show®. More than 40,000 participants are expected to convene at the co-located shows.
GLM expects more than 400 exhibitors to show at Global Home Textiles, including companies from China, India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Thailand, South America, Turkey, Israel and Eastern Europe. Visitors will include American businesses interested in sourcing home textiles and related products, including retailers, importers, distributors, wholesalers, agents and product development teams.

GLM has a proven track record serving the needs of the home textiles industry, and the company is taking this dedication into the international marketplace, creating partnerships with leading global organizations to ensure that the Global Home Textiles show offers tremendous business opportunities to both exhibitors and visitors.
