Spesa Expo, Material World to Co-Locate in 2004

The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA), owner and producer of SPESA Expo 2004, and Urban Expositions, owner and producer of Material World, have announced plans to co-locate their events in 2004. To be held May 18-20 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, FL, the co-located events will offer a comprehensive global solutions resource for the sewn products industry, show producers report.

Going forward, the SPESA Expo and Material World co-located events will take place in the spring of every third year, offering visitors exhibits of machinery, parts, fabric, trims, services, CAD/CAM, software, sourcing, accessories and more, plus educational programs.

To minimize confusion and maximize service to attendees, one registration system will service both shows, and one badge will provide entrance to all shows, say organizers, who add that an open floorplan will make it easy for attendees to move from one show to the other.

Focusing on machinery and technology, SPESA Expo 2004 will feature not only exhibits but also an educational conference program. SPESA Expo 2004 has received official endorsements from the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA), the Japan Sewing Machinery Manufacturers Association (JASMA), the German Association for Garment and Leather Machinery (VDMA), the China Sewing Machinery Association (CSMA), the Mexican Apparel Manufacturers Association (CNIV), the Mexican Machinery Association (AMPIV) and the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI).

Material World also will offer a comprehensive roster of educational programs, networking events and trend pavilions in addition to its exhibits. The show has the official sponsorship of the AAFA, and also is endorsed by the American Apparel Producers' Network (AAPN), the Office of Textile and Apparel of the U.S. Department of Commerce (OTEXA), the American Textile Manufacturers Institute (ATMI), the Worth Global Style Network (WGSN) and the Textile Distributors Association.

Further expanding the offerings of the co-located events, Urban Expositions, SPESA and the Supplier Resource Division (SRD) of the AAFA will jointly produce the Information Technology Exposition and Conference. Organizers say this collaborative effort will showcase all aspects of information technology for the sewn products industry, including solutions for design/merchandising, product development, manufacturing, sourcing, ERP/business management, supply chain management, logistics/distribution and retailing. The Information Technology Conference and Exposition will feature a conference and educational track targeted to IT professionals that supports all segments of the sewn products industry. This educational forum will include presentations from industry analysts and consultants, as well as case studies presented by forward-thinking sewn products companies that have leveraged IT solutions to meet their specific business needs.
