Messe Frankfurt, SPESA to Continue Co-Producing Texprocess Americas

Trade Show

As of Thursday, May 9, 2019

The Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas and trade-show producer Messe Frankfurt Inc. announced they have extended their contract to co-produce the Texprocess Americas trade show through 2032.

Texprocess Americas, which got its start as the SPESA EXPO, is a venue for equipment and technology for the development, sourcing and production of sewn products.

The fourth edition of the show is set for May 22–24, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The show will again be co-located with Messe Frankfurt’s Techtextil North America trade show for technical textiles.

“The announcement today is further evidence of the close relationship between SPESA and Messe Frankfurt, which has grown exponentially since the original agreement was signed in 2010,” said Benton Gardner, SPESA president, in a statement.

Dennis Smith, Messe Frankfurt in North America president and chief executive officer, said his company prides itself on its long-term commitments to the industry it serves.

“Extending the ongoing collaboration agreement with SPSEA is special for us and underlines our dedication to the sewn-products industry in the Americas,” he said.
