Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, April 7, 2011
ATLANTA - Trade show organizer Messe Frankfurt North America is teaming with online sourcing marketplace MFG.com on a trio of shows that run in concert at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York.
The shows are Texworld USA, Home Textiles Sourcing Expo and International Apparel Sourcing Expo, which take place July 19 to 21.
"The idea of unifying the online and offline sourcing experience for both buyers and suppliers makes sense," said Tony Forcucci, global director of the textiles and apparel sourcing marketplace at MFG.com.
David Audrain, president and ceo of Messe Frankfurt North America, said MFG.com will help exhibitors "extend the value they receive from our shows throughout the year." He continued: "Adding MFG.com to our existing collaborations with Stylesight, Lenzing and our other partners makes our shows in New York that much more valuable, must-attend events."
