Stylesight and Messe Frankfurt North America Expand Partnership for July 2011 Show
New York, NY – Stylesight, the most trusted name in trend and the industryʼs creative platform, expands its successful trend partnership with leading textile tradeshow, Texworld USA, for the showʼs eleventh edition. The two companies will continue their collaboration at the upcoming Texworld USA Trade Fair held at The Javits Center in New York City, July 19 – 21st, 2011. Stylesightʼs team of trend analysts will curate three Trend Forums, one for Texworld USA, and two separate forums specific to the International Apparel Sourcing Show and the Home Textiles SourcingExpo, as well as present a total of eight industry seminars for show attendees.
“Stylesight and Texworld USA have created a partnership unique to the trade fair world by focusing on the synergies that exist between textiles for apparel, textiles for home and Sourcing,” says Frank Bober, Founder and CEO of Stylesight. “We are proud to be associated with an innovative trade fair organizer that allows us to bring our expertise to the industry over a full range of eight seminars and help the industry connect the dots within these disciplines.”
“In 2010, we added the International Apparel Sourcing Show and Home Textiles SourcingExpo to our already well-established and successful Texworld USA, creating the unique three show co-located sourcing concept that now leads the market,” says David Audrain, President and CEO, Messe Frankfurt North America. “For July 2011, our expanded partnership with Stylesight and commitment to continuously improving the services offered to our show community has resulted in providing exhibitors and attendees with more tools for their product development cycle including timely materials forecast information, interiors trends, a specific Stylesight seminars track that is complimentary to all show participants and of course, the anticipated trend displays.”
This season, Texworld USA, the International Apparel Sourcing Show and the Home Textiles SourcingExpo, will again be co-located together in one venue. In addition to expertly curating three separate trend forums, unique to each show based off of Stylesightʼs F/W 12 Megatrends, Stylesight will present a series of eight seminars during the entirety of the shows. Topics will range from F/W 12 Megatrends and Material Innovations, to 2012 Interiors Trends, F/W 12 Youth Culture Trends and even F/W 12 Design Development for the Childrenʼs Market. Stylesight CEO, Frank Bober, will take to the floor on Thursday, July 21st, for a highly-anticipated panel discussion surrounding Innovations in Sourcing with Josh Green, CEO of Panjiva; David Miller, VP of Global Sourcing at Lord & Taylor; and Steve Jesseph, CEO of WRAP Compliance.
