Educational Programming Will Provide Insights into Performance Fabrics, Manufacturing and International Trade

(PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.) – Fabric mills and factories from around the world will exhibit the latest developments in athletic and golf-related apparel in a dedicated Performance & Sports Textile Sourcing section of the Show Floor at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 25-27, in Orlando, Fla. Complimentary education sessions will be offered to provide expert insight into technical fabric innovations, international trade policies, American manufacturing and advantages of duty-free sourcing.

“We have developed Performance & Sports Textile Sourcing on the PGA Show Floor based on an exhibitor desire to expand their sourcing matrix and develop a deeper knowledge of performance fabrics, manufacturing and international trade opportunities,” said PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions Senior Vice President and General Manager Ed Several. “Golf and resort apparel development executives, designers, CEOs and entrepreneurs will be able to meet face-to-face with experts from around the globe in one convenient location and develop their understanding of fabrications, manufacturing and international sourcing opportunities.”

The specialized Performance & Sports Textile Sourcing section on the PGA Show Floor was first introduced in 2016 to enhance sourcing for exhibitors by providing a curated group of fabric mills and factories specializing in athletic and golf apparel. A Performance & Sports Textile Sourcing presentation area will complement the exhibitor grouping, offering complimentary education sessions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to make consulting appointments with sourcing professionals who can provide basic sourcing protocol and guidance, plus assist with identifying appropriate suppliers.
