ITA shifts dates for spring Showtime a week earlier

The International Textile Alliance (ITA) has changed the dates for the spring 2021 Showtime market to May 16-19. The show was originally scheduled for May 23-26.

The ITA will also support permanent showrooms and temporary exhibitors by appointment during the Premarket dates of April 25-27 and during the last few days of the rescheduled High Point Market on June 8-10.

“One of the main functions of the ITA is producing our biannual tradeshow where our members can present their new lines each season,” said Carrie Dillon, managing director of the ITA. “COVID-19 has made that a difficult proposition over the past 10 months, but we were encouraged by our ability to hold a safe show in November 2020 and our members’ flexibility in accommodating their customers.”

Dillon added that the decision to offer multiple dates to showcase products in the spring offered the best opportunity to service all stakeholders on a schedule that meets safety and sourcing requirements.

The ITA said that many of the manufacturers exhibiting at High Point Market are the attending buyers during the Showtime event. The decision to move up the core event in May and provide additional dates in April and June was in response
