This year's CAFTA Apparel Sourcing Show will throw a spotlight on some of the most competitive textile and apparel producers in the Central American region.

The event, which takes place from 19-21 May in Guatemala City, provides an opportunity for buyers, suppliers and industry experts to look at the area's dynamic textile and apparel industry - from machinery and yarn producers to full-package solutions.

Flexibility, an integrated supply chain, proximity to the US market, and the ability to produce a wide range of high-quality garment are just some of the region's advantages.

Companies from all over the world - including Canada, Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, and the US - will also display their products and services on the exhibit floor. 

Avidly pursuing global business opportunities, the region already has free trade agreements with the United States and Mexico and will soon add Canada and the European Union.
