Upcoming ATSM 2019 to offer unprecedented networking opportunities

Upcoming ATSM 2019 to offer unprecedented networking opportunities

Apparel Desk: The Apparel Textile Sourcing Miami (ATSM) show, to be held from May 28-30, 2019 at the Mana Wynwood Conference Center, will present latest developments shaping the booming apparel and textile market. The show provides an unprecedented opportunity for networking and education as more than 300 exhibitors from over 15 countries converge at the show — including fabric mills, ready-made garment factories, service providers, wholesalers, trade offices and home textile suppliers.

More than 4,000 visitors from Florida, Southeastern US and Latin America are expected to attend, representing brands, retailers, e-commerce sellers, designers, importers and buying offices. The overlap with Miami Fashion Week will increase the numbers to more than 10,000 fashion industry professionals visiting the Magic City at that time.

Pantone to unveil fashion color trend forecast for Fall 2020

At the forefront of the event will be the unveiling of the fashion color trend forecast for Autumn/Winter 2020-2021 by PantoneColor Institute, the global authority on the movement of color across current and future seasons that enables color-critical decisions through every stage of workflow for brands and manufacturers. Visitors will get an opportunity to experience upcoming trends first hand and interact with color specialists at the Pantone booth.

Asia-US-Latin America Investment Summit to focus on local investment

To be organised by ATSM in conjunction with the Investment Association of China (IAC), the first Asia-US-Latin American Investment Summit on May 28, 2019 will take place in the show’s VIP Lounge. It will focus on local investment opportunities in Miami and Fort Lauderdale in the areas of logistics, ports, commercial/residential real estate, infrastructure and technology.

Focus on Latin American producers

As a study by McKinsey & Company indicates, much of the future global apparel market’s continued growth will come from developing markets. ATSM has plans to bring a Latin American delegation of apparel and textile producers to Miami who are ready to facilitate “near-sourcing” business with attendees.

Strategic alliances with private firms, associations, and govt agencies to provide support

The Miami-Dade Beacon Council, economic development organisation for Miami-Dade County, will bring both domestic and international representatives to the region, stimulating economic development and prosperity for Miami-Dade.

Show visitors will also reap the benefits of unique Florida Business Panel, which will provide insight into local industry opportunities and services. Julie Hughes, President of the DC-based US Fashion Industry Association will also be on hand to provide an update on the latest developments in global trade, tariff and non-tariff barriers, and new sourcing opportunities.

Fashion Show to feature local and int’l designers

The trade show will also include the return of the much-anticipated ATSM fashion show, representing both local and international designers, up-and-coming student talent and global fashions presented by show exhibitors.
