Texworld USA will be held from July 22 to 24, 2019. The trade show has put the spotlight on sustainability and is continuing its commitment to eco-friendly products and practices by integrating the theme throughout the event. To propel sustainability movement forward, the show will welcome Fashionsustain. The content is designed to inspire industry insiders to shift the paradigm around how clothes are sourced and made, lessening apparel’s global impact on carbon emissions, water use and chemical pollution. Fashionsustain will host a compelling lineup of dynamic speakers, each providing solution-oriented insights on how the industry can collaborate and innovate.
The event combines ideas with action and sustainable fashion. Leaders come together to discuss better ways of working, with both emerging and established sustainable brands showcasing new ideas. Texworld USA will make buying responsible textiles easy by creating a designated trend space for eco-friendly suppliers and indicating likeminded exhibitors with a leaf icon on signage and in the visitor guide. The programming will center around initiatives like upcycling, circularity and material innovations. Attendees will be provided the opportunity to learn from and connect with service providers related to recycling solutions, business development and trend forecasting. The show has cut back on unnecessary printed materials, reduced the amount of carpeting it uses and upcycled banners from previous events into show bags.
