Korean Textile & Fabric Showcase 2014

by / Tuesday, 22 July 2014 / Published in Events

We are delighted to announce the 2nd annual Korean Textile & Fabric Showcase 2014, hosted by Korea International Trade Association (KITA). This event is a continuation from last year’s successful event and again to be hosted both virtually and physically. You can visit our New York showroom (from July 29, 2014 – August 1, 2014) or attend the event online (from July 1, 2014 – July 25, 2014).

Korean Textile & Fabric Showcase 2014 is an event for buyers of garments & home textiles, designers, product development teams, merchandisers and sourcing professionals. This year’s attendees will receive exclusive access to 13 of the top textile and fabric suppliers from Korea and their expansive and high quality product lines.

As many industry insiders are well aware already; Korean textile suppliers are highly regarded for being at the leading edge of new fabric, color and technological trends resulting in the steady demand in the U.S. market. In addition; KORUS, the recent Free Trade Agreement between Korea and the U.S. resulted in the elimination or reduction of tariff / customs duties for the textile products from Korea over years, and this number has certainly increase in 2014 resulting in addition price competitiveness and incentives to source high quality fabric for U.S. buyers and brands.

Last year’s inception of the Korean Textile & Fabric Showcase brought some surprisingly positive results including one of the major transactions that occurred from this event was with a large U.S. brand. This type of transaction; amongst several other ones, was possible due to the trust instilled to the buyers from KITA, the event, and low pressure sales environment for the buyers.

As such, we believe this year’s event will serve to provide great business opportunities once again by fostering new partnerships and increasing international trade.

This event will again be hosted both virtually online as well as in person at the New York City showroom.
