Technology And New Trends Prevalent At Bobbin

Challenges face the sewn products industry, but they were met head on at the Bobbin Americas Expo
held from September 30 to October 2 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Many problems
were solved by using new technologies which are able to handle new trends in fibers, yarns, fabrics
and the fashions required in the market. The show allowed attendees to discuss those challenges and
take a look at the overall global textile and fashion markets. Attendees were also able to check
out technology that will produce the cost-cutting and production-enhancing resources needed to be
competitive in todays global economy.Bobbin Americas included 800 exhibiting companies in 2,500
booths and pavilions from South and Central America, as well as Asia. In addition, the
fabric-market-place showcased manufacturers of textiles from around the world for the entire sewn
products industry.
