Dallas-based Market Center Management Company (MCMC), an international market center and tradeshow
management company, has announced plans to launch GlobalTex, a new international textile show to be
held in Los Angeles. Endorsed by the Textile Association of Los Angeles, GlobalTex will be held
twice a year at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with the first two shows scheduled for April
21-23, 2009, and October 13-15, 2009.
MCMC plans for GlobalTex to be the largest apparel fabrics and materials show in the United
States. “We are extremely pleased to offer a premier international textile show,” said MCMC
President and CEO Bill Winsor. “Our goal is to launch a show larger than any textile event in the
United States and expand the show to 1 million square feet over the next five years.”
GlobalTex will present sourcing needs, including fabric, trimmings, supplies and technology
for the apparel trade. Specially organized seminars and events will be offered in addition to the
exhibition. Technology to be presented will include computer systems, software and equipment.
