ITA launches second Showtime, a one-time event in New Jersey

The International Textile Alliance (ITA) is launching a dual-city outreach program to supplement its November Showtime event.

Designed to connect more wholesale fabric, leather and trim suppliers with buyers who do not want to or cannot travel to North Carolina for its bi-annual fabric market, the expanded event will now include a second venue in MahWah, N.J. High Point-based Showtime will run Nov. 15-18; the New Jersey-based Showtime event, called Showtime North, will take place Nov. 16-17 in the MahWah, N.J., Marriott Courtyard.

During Showtime North, mills and converters will be seen by appointment for showings of new collections of textiles, leather and trim for the home furnishings sector – residential, hospitality and contract markets – just like at Showtime.

Through its partnership with the venue, the ITA has arranged for Showtime North to provide safe, personal and private environments in which fabric brands and buyers will be able to meet and show product. The association plans to support this expanded venue as a one-time supplement to its ongoing North Carolina shows and looks to make “even broader connections virtually,” according to a release.

Buyers interested in attending the Showtime North event can visit the ITA website for additional information

  • The difficult travel and tourism situation in New York is projected to go at least into the first quarter of next year.
  • Many retailers will not be back in their offices until at least January, making it likely that their travel restrictions will remain in place through the first quarter.
  • Manufacturers need to make decisions quickly on showroom space and travel plans.

“We have also been watching what is going on with other trade shows,” said Kaufman. “The 2021 Toy Fair has moved from February to May, and the Inspired Home Show has moved from March to August. All signs pointed to not being able to meet in-person in March.”

Given all those considerations, the HFPA board of directors decided to make the call to move to a virtual format now rather than push the decision out,
