A comprehensive trade show and conference, the Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami (ATS-M) trade show will take place from May 21 to 23, 2018, at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami. The event will bring to Florida hundreds of international apparel and textile manufacturers from countries worldwide including, China, India, Bangladesh, the US, Turkey, Pakistan and Mexico. And as Moishe Mana, Miami-based billionaire developer and CEO of Mana Group says, “We are committed to making Miami the nexus for commerce between Asia, North America, and Latin America.
We’re excited to have ATS Miami join this initiative as the fashion and apparel industry is one of our core verticals.” The ATS brand has established itself internationally with Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada, held every August in Toronto. In 2017 the event grew by over 50 per cent in attendees and international exhibits. The same formula of success is the basis for ATS-Miami. “The expansion of the ATS Brand to Miami is a direct response to the market demand and fills a significant gap for the US-&-Latin American markets,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, organiser of the event and parent company to TopTenWholesale.com and Manufacturer.com, the most expansive network of business-to-business sourcing platforms in the US. Millions of international members use these brands to locate wholesalers and manufacturers. ATS-Miami provides a unique opportunity for apparel and textile importers and retailers to intersect and access the most current importing information from the top industry insiders. The producers are coming from Asia to Miami.
ATS-M will feature three days-worth of seminars, panels and runway shows featuring acclaimed industry and government experts, covering topics from trade agreements to best practices with an eye on the changing Latin American market, as well as tips on how to choose overseas producers, plus new approaches on succeeding in the US market.
