The Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) announces that more than 50 Korean companies will showcase the latest innovations and products at the debut West Coast edition of Material World and Technology Solutions. An official event of the American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) , the new West Coast edition will co-locate with the LA International Textiles Show at the California Market Center (CMC), September 30-October 2, 2009 in Los Angeles, CA.

"Korea continues to be recognized as a global leader in the worldwide production of textiles, with textile exports playing a key role in the country's economic growth. The expansive presence of the Korea Pavilion at our new event in Los Angeles will give our attendees a first hand-look at Korea's latest innovations, new technologies and fashion production capabilities," said Tim von Gal, president, Material World & Technology Solutions.

"It has been four years since the establishment of the Global Korea Textile Show (Preview in LA). As our main purpose is to promote the Korean textile and fashion industry, we are extremely delighted to have the opportunity to partner this fall with the California Market Center and Material World LA. We believe that with the support of these two highly experienced organizers, the upcoming fall event will be a good turning point and begin to be recognized as a must-see textile show, " said Mr. Sang Chul Kim, Director General of KOTRA Los Angeles.

Since its inception in 1962, KOTRA has been committed to promoting mutual prosperity between Korea and its trading partners by facilitating international commerce and investment. Throughout its history, the organization has successfully facilitated Korea's rapid export-led economic development through various trade promotion activities such as overseas market surveys and business matchmaking.

In addition, the new West Coast edition of Material World will also include a home furnishings, garment production equipment and machinery section.

The co-location of Material World, Technology Solutions and the LA International Textiles Show creates the industry's largest, most comprehensive marketplace for apparel and home furnishing textiles, sourcing, global fashion production and supply chain resources on the west coast.
