The organizers of SPINEXPO Shanghai have confirmed plans to launch a New York edition of the textiles show. SPINEXPO New York will take place from Jul. 20-22 at the Altman Building in Chelsea, New York City.

The event is expected to host a truly international offering of fibers and yarns for knitwear, lingerie and hosiery; yarns for weaving, for both apparel and interior; knitwear manufacturers; and innovative knitwear machinery manufacturers from over 70 companies from Asia, Europe, India, the USA and South America.

A trend forum will also highlight key directions in color, knitwear development and styling for S/S 2010 and F/W 2010-11. STOLL USA, a partner of SPINEXPO Shanghai, will provide complimentary consultations from stylists and technicians for knitting complex yarns on their machines, while Australian Wool Innovation will provide technical and creative support with seminars on emerging trends and upcoming market developments.
