Texworld USA, the biannual fabric show in New York, has struck a partnership with Tradegood, the online B2B sourcing site founded by Intertek.
The partnership will help Texworld attendees “set benchmarks according to their specific requirements,” according to a statement released by the trade show.
“Texworld USA actively seeks new avenues to assist our buyers and exhibitors in building stronger relationships,” said Kristy Meade, group show director of Messe Frankfurt Inc., owner of Texworld USA. “Partnering with Tradegood will provide match-making support, enabling buyers to make accurate and insightful decisions when selecting a supplier. We are excited to offer this new feature to our buyers and exhibitors.”
Buyers attending Texworld, as well as exhibitors at the show, will be offered access to Tradegood’s services when they register for the show. Match-making and other support services will be provided onsite at the show.
Texworld USA will next be held Jan. 21–23 in the North Hall of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. In addition to Texworld, the International Apparel Sourcing Show will be co-located at the show.
Quality and safety-service provider Intertek developed and launched Tradegood last year to connect buyers with suppliers in more than 100 countries.
