Textiles Show Has International Flair

The spring New York Home Textiles Show, held from April 8 to 11 at the Javits Center in New York, will feature 200 international companies from more than 20 countries.

The show will feature government-sponsored pavilions from Italy, China and India. In addition, independent companies will participate from Austria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Vietnam. Many exhibitors target retailers and distributors with products and lines specifically for the U.S. market.

The Global Connections division will feature companies from China, India, Japan, Pakistan and Vietnam. The division includes companies that seek large volume business and mass retail opportunities, serving importers, manufacturers and retailers looking to source directly from overseas producers.

“In this competitive business climate, successful retailers need to offer unique and innovative home fashions in order to distinguish their merchandise profile,” said Gracelyn Monaco, show manager. “By bringing together a diversity of product from around the globe, the New York Home Textiles Show will meet the needs of the marketplace, offering the broadest range of style, product, category and pricepoint.”

The New York Home Textiles Show will run concurrently with and alongside Ex·Tracts: Essentials for personal care and wellness.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
