First-time exhibitors include home textiles manufacturers from Canada, Hong Kong, Peru, Portugal, Turkey and the U.S. Returning exhibitors hail from China, Egypt, India, Korea, Pakistan and Spain.
"Our exhibitor list growth is an indication of the advantages HTSE offers the home textiles industry," says John Gallagher, president and ceo of show organizer Messe Frankfurt North America.
The bulk of this year's exhibitors hail from China and India, with Chinese manufacturers representing the key textiles hubs of Zhejiang Shaoxing, Shandong Qingdao, Jiangsu Changsu, and Wujiang Shengze.
"The Sino-U.S. textile trade has reached new levels. In partnership with Messe Frankfurt, we are presenting these three international supply chain network events (Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, Texworld USA and the International Apparel Sourcing Show) to promote further cooperation between Chinese and American textile products companies," said Xu Yingxin, executive vice chairman of CCPIT TEX.
Fiber producer Lenzing, also a show partner, will present an expanded booth this year featuring home textiles suppliers who produce goods using the company's Tencel and LenzingModal fibers.
