The winter 2022 editions of Texworld New York City and Apparel Sourcing New York City have been canceled due to rising number of Covid cases and a significant deterioration in the general conditions for holding the in-person shows. Both shows will continue virtually and can be accessed live during January 25 to 27, 2022. The virtual platform will open with similar features found on the trade show floor. Attendees will be able to take advantage of the AI-powered matchmaking capabilities of recommended textile suppliers, video meetings, and more. In addition, the educational program scheduled for January’s in-person show will also continue virtually. Dates and times remain unchanged. The summer editions of Texworld and Apparel Sourcing New York City are scheduled for July 19 to 21, 2022, New York City.
