Trade Show: Home Textile Sourcing Expo

A sustainable summer in New York

The Home Textile Sourcing Expo is starting the summer with a record number of exhibitors. From 22-24 July, the Javits Convention Center in New York will become a hotspot for manufacturers, retailers and designers on the lookout for the latest home textile trends.

June 2019

All under one roof: together with Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA, the Home Textile Sourcing Expo is showcasing a huge spectrum of home textiles and finished soft goods for all home uses. This year’s edition of the expo is taking place for the first time on the main level exhibition halls of the Javits Convention Center in New York.  From bathroom to kitchen, from design to technology: the home textiles exhibition offers insights into new product innovations from more than nine categories.

In a comprehensive study by Oeko-Tex on the subject of sustainability in the textile sector the growing trend for sustainable consumer behaviour was plain to see: it revealed that 70 percent of the more than 11,000 consumers surveyed worldwide consider it their responsibility to lead a sustainable and environmentally conscious lifestyle [1]. The Expo also takes up this topic and devotes a special role to it in the wide-ranging accompanying line-up of the trade fair. In keeping with this, Home Textiles Today is organising two discussions on 23 July 2019. They will deal with fundamental questions about the sustainable design of the textile supply chain and how companies can best prepare themselves for the necessary changes. On the following day, leaders from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) will be sharing their perspective on certification with sustainability standards: companies making sustainability claims on their apparel and home textile products must be able to prove they adhere to standards addressing transparency and traceability throughout their supply chain. Industry experts will walk attendees through the process using their own experiences and expertise to answer these overarching questions. Further free seminars and discussions will address the opportunities, challenges and developments facing the industry and offer an ideal platform for establishing a dialogue, sharing knowledge and discovering new trends.

In 2018 the Home Textile Sourcing Expo welcomed 402 national and international visitors and 126 exhibitors from nine countries. This year’s edition is exceeding the exhibitor numbers of the previous year and leaving the organisers hopeful that there will also be a significant increase in visitor numbers. In cooperation with Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA, the leading trade fair for home textiles and finished soft goods will be taking place from 22-24 July at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
