US: Supply chain focus adds to SPESA Expo appeal
The organisers of the SPESA Expo trade show are adding an area featuring design, sourcing, production and distribution at next year's event.
The 'Supply Chain of the Americas' exhibit will complement the show's traditional focus on equipment and technology, and has been introduced in response to growing interest in producing in close proximity to the US market.
"By expanding the scope of SPESA Expo, we are working to fill the need that sewn products manufacturers, brands, and retailers have to better understand the opportunities and identify the resources available to them in the western hemisphere," explains Dave Gardner, managing director of SPESA (the Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas).
The show, which will take place from 18-20 May 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia will now include exhibits of textiles and components, design and development services, production and logistics providers, and country and industry association pavilions.
It will also feature other related products and services that support the entire concept-to-delivery fashion and sewn products lifecycle in the western hemisphere.
The new Supply Chain of the Americas exhibit is also expected to attract a broader audience to the triennial event, which has historically focused primarily on equipment and machinery exhibits.
