Small businesses, retailers, manufacturers and designers across the US and Latin America will get a boost for the summer when the Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami (ATS-M) trade show, a one-of-a-kind event expands to Miami 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 China, India, Bangladesh, the US, Turkey, Pakistan, Mexico and many other countries and territories from across Central and South America and all around the globe. Moishe Mana, Miami-based billionaire developer and CEO of the Mana Group says, “We are committed to making Miami the nexus for commerce between Asia, North America and Latin America.” He continued, "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 established itself internationally with Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada, held every August in Toronto. In 2017, the event grew by 50 per cent in terms of attendees and international exhibits. Attendees will gain new insights and information to best navigate and profit in the international sourcing process. “The expansion of the ATS Brand to Miami is a direct response to the market demand and fills a significant gap for the US and 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-M will feature 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.
