The Apparel Sourcing Show (APSS) returns to Guatemala City this year with a special focus on how the CAFTA region can help apparel executives find sourcing opportunities. Now in its twenty-first year, APSS is scheduled for May 22-24, 2012 at the Grand Tikal Futura Hotel & Convention Center. The annual Apparel Sourcing Show is hosted by the Guatemalan Textile and Apparel Industry Commission (VESTEX).

Last year's Apparel Sourcing Show attracted more than 4,500 participants from 14 different countries.

APSS is the ONLY sourcing show in the CAFTA-DR region to bring together the full range of CAFTA suppliers all in one place. In 2012, APSS will include shoes and accessories for the first time. The show is arranged to guide you through the CAFTA supply chain, including:

  • Textile mills
  • Full package services
  • Machinery
  • Services and trimmings
  • Footwear and accessories

This year's show focuses on how CAFTA-DR can provide an integrated platform for sourcing textiles, apparel, footwear, and accessories. The global economy may remain unpredictable for some time, but Central American countries offer stable, duty-free access to the U.S. market. As we see the economic recovery continue to keep the apparel industry guessing, new customers are taking advantage of the CAFTA region's close proximity to the U.S. market, while former customers hit by the downturn are returning to the booming region. The CAFTA industry's reputation for flexibility in volume and designs offers the ideal solution for today's market demands.

APSS also will feature panels of experts discussing the issues that affect apparel sourcing in 2012 and into the future. Planned workshops will cover technical advances, new trends, labor and regulatory compliance, market and commercial developments, as well as evolving trade policy.

The 2012 Apparel Sourcing Show, "CAFTA-DR: Thriving on Global Changes"
