LAS VEGAS — The slowing economy cultivated a buyer’s market at sourcing shows here last month, pushing many foreign factories and textile vendors to seek new ways to offer quality materials and services at lower prices.
At Sourcing at MAGIC and the ASAP Global Sourcing Show, held from Aug. 24 to 27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Venetian hotel, respectively, exhibitors tried to lure new customers with a variety of tactics, from substituting less expensive fabrics for silk to promoting their duty-free status.
