The Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada (ATSC) show, which will be held from August 21-23, 2017 in Toronto, will unveil under one roof all that’s trending in the worldwide industry. The organisers of the show announced that representatives from top apparel and textile manufacturers from more than 20 countries will be participating.
China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, the US, the UK, Canada, Turkey, Jordan, Switzerland, Vietnam, Nepal and more will share with Canadians their latest products and production processes in an effort to forge new business relationships. For the first time, thanks to a newly-minted partnership between ATSC and TFO Canada, Canadians will also get a sneak peek—and first grabs at import opportunities—of unique artisanal apparel, textiles and related goods from eight least developed countries (LDCs) like Madagascar, Uganda, Lesotho, Ethiopia, Haiti, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Nepal.
TFO Canada, which creates sustainable trade partnerships for exporters from developing countries to promote small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the specialty textile and garment sector, has announced that it will bring 30 SMEs to this year’s event to showcase the organisation’s Artisan Hub initiative.
