NEW YORK — As they prepare for next week’s Yarn Fair International, exhibitors said they’re zeroing in on specific market niches where they can use technology for a competitive advantage.
While they acknowledged that business is still in recovery mode going into the second half of the year, textile executives from the approximately 90 exhibitors said the Yarn Fair — which takes place here July 22-24 — will be an opportunity to meet up with existing and potential new clients to collaborate on projects for fall 2003. Some will premiere new products at the fair.
