The International Textile Alliance (ITA) is launching a major, dual-city outreach to connect wholesale fabric, leather, and trim suppliers with buyers during its bi-annual Showtime Textiles show in November.
Traditionally held in High Point, NC, ITA’s November Showtime edition will be expanded to reach buyers closer to home, to be held in-person in Mahwah, NJ, in addition to the traditional venue of High Point, NC.
The dates will coincide:
- Nov 15-18 High Point, NC
- Nov 16-17 Mahwah, NJ
The venue in New Jersey will be the Marriott Courtyard, off Route 287. Leading Mills and Convertors will be seen by appointment for showings of new collections of textiles, leather and trim for the home furnishings sector – residential, hospitality and contract markets.
ITA has partnered with the Courtyard to provide safe, personal, and private environments in which to show fabric lines to buyers unable to travel to NC for the main show. ITA will support this expanded venue as a one-time supplement to its ongoing NC shows and look to make even broader connections virtually.
Buyers planning to attend Showtime in High Point can pre-register here to prevent lines at check-in. Buyers interested in attending the Showtime North event can visit the ITA for additional information and registration. Companies interested in exhibiting at either or both locations can contact Carrie Dillon at carrie@
ITA continues to focus on expanding benefits for its members beyond that of the tradeshow.
