ATLANTA — Despite impending war, an ailing economy and the ongoing shift of apparel production to China, Material World, a textile trade show focused on the Western Hemisphere, goes on.
With its first spring event set for March 17-19 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Material World is becoming a biannual show targeting primarily Western Hemisphere manufacturers. The next edition of the show is expected to feature significantly larger technology, trend and sourcing areas, rounding out the show’s fabrics, trimmings and supplies offerings.
