Industry Influencers Plan to Attend Inaugural Functional Fabric Fair Powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS®, July 23-24, at Javits Cen...

Complimentary Industry Admission; Exhibits, Educational & Networking Programs Offered

The first U.S. Functional Fabric Fair Powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS® has attracted more than 800 industry influencers from 19 countries to preview the latest trends and source high performance functional fabrics and accessories, July 23-24, at the Javits Center in New York. The inaugural event, held in the River Pavilion and co-located with multiple fashion market events at Javits, includes some 70 exhibitors, complimentary workshops and professional networking programs.

“New York is a white space for an event like this that offers something new and different,” said Steve McCullough of Reed Exhibitions. “The U.S. Functional Fabric Fair powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS® fills a need in the U.S. for an exclusive sourcing platform of performance materials and technical textiles.”

More than 800 registered attendees represent market leaders, up-and-coming designers, apparel manufacturing veterans and mass merchandisers such as American Eagle-Aerie, Calvin Klein, Dillard’s, J.Crew, Mizzen+Main, Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Victoria’s Secret – PINK and more.

Some 70 textile manufacturers, suppliers and service providers will present their latest developments in functional fabrics, membranes plus treatments, laminates, paddings, finishes, and accessories such as yarns, tapes, prints, buttons and zippers. The show floor also will feature the Performance Forum, an interactive, centralized showcase of advanced-technology fabric swatches.

Respected industry leaders will present 12 keynote sessions on the latest trends, sustainability and technological advances at the presentation stage. Among the presenters are leading color forecaster Nora Kühner, who will provide insights into emerging color palettes for 2020, and World Sports Activewear’s Sophie Bramel, who will moderate a panel discussion of textiles and technology and the need to invent new business models for tomorrow’s smart clothing.

Show organizers are providing “white glove” treatment for attendees with a concierge service that will provide a personalized tour of exhibitors and supplier suggestions/matchmaking. Active Sports Design’s Alexa Dehmel, will provide attendees with a daily complimentary tour of the Performance Forum to spotlight the latest fabric developments. And, on Monday, July 23, at 4 p.m., “The Pour At 4 Networking Party,” sponsored by Textile Insights, will feature music, refreshments and light fare for all attendees and exhibitors.
