Material World Reports Successful Miami Beach Show

Organizers of sewn products sourcing exhibition Material World Miami Beach reported “solid attendance” by executives, sourcing personnel and buyers from top apparel and other sewn products companies; as well as “strong business leads” for exhibitors and increased global exhibitor participation at the eighth edition of the show. The exhibition was held recently in conjunction with information technology conference and exposition Technology Solutions at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla.

Material World Miami Beach is sponsored by the American Apparel & Footwear Association, Arlington, Va. Urban Expositions, Marietta, Ga., produces and manages the two collocated events.

“Our exhibitors have given us very positive feedback regarding the quality of attendees and new business leads they secured at the April show,” said Tim von Gal, executive vice president, Urban Expositions. “In addition, we were very pleased to see an increase in the number of international visitors from Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as many of the top decision-makers from US companies.”

The two shows attracted 400 exhibitors — not only from the Western Hemisphere, but also from countries such as China, Korea, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, India and Turkey — presenting a full range of products and services for the sewn products industry. Educational programs covered topics such as sourcing, trade and logistics. Other events included trend presentations and vendor-sponsored technology programs. There also was a Trend Pavilion that offered a forecast of Spring/Summer 2007 fabrics, trims, colors and textures.
