WRAP-Certified Factories Spotlighted at Las Vegas MAGIC Show
June 11th 2009
WRAP-Certified Factories Spotlighted at Las Vegas MAGIC Show In a historic first, WRAP-certified factories will be spotlighted at the upcoming Sourcing at MAGIC show in Las Vegas from August 30 - September 2, 2009. Sourcing at MAGIC is the ultimate international business platform offering one-stop shopping for the entire apparel supply chain.
A separate pavilion is planned only for WRAP-certified factories. MAGIC staff will direct buyers to the pavilion as an increasing number of buyers are seeking to purchase apparel and accessories only from socially and environmentally compliant facilities. In addition, a full-page listing of the facilities is planned in the show directory.
'This is the first time any show or exhibition in the world has singled out socially compliant businesses,' said Steve Jesseph, WRAP President. 'Buyers have repeatedly asked to be referred to compliant factories in previous shows so MAGIC management decided to create a unique space for those businesses that have demonstrated a commitment to socially and environmentally responsible business practices by obtaining WRAP certification. Many factories have asked us: If I'm certified, will it help me get more business? At MAGIC, it does!' WRAP will have its own booth at MAGIC as well.
For those factories not already committed to MAGIC, a special Studio Booth package has been developed which includes a 6' x 10' space, signage, carpet, a table with three chairs and wastebasket. Drayage is included for product only up to 300 lbs. The total cost is US$3,500.
A limited number of booths are available in this special space and several are already committed. If you're interested in this exciting opportunity, contact Yin Yin at the WRAP office,
to receive the registration forms.
What have other exhibitors said about their experience at MAGIC?
'This is the second time that I have participated in Sourcing at MAGIC. Last time I gained a lot of orders that I am still doing business with. This show there were several inquiries about my company and I am happy to say that I received a one million piece on-site order. There are also commitments from buyers to visit my factory. I am really impressed that MAGIC has created a lot of new things for Sourcing buyers.'
Syed Mehedy Hossain, Young Star Sweater
'We have exhibited in Sourcing at MAGIC five times in the past 3 years. There has been a commendable response, which continuously brings us back to Las Vegas. The February 2009 show was no exception. The contacts we established will certainly help us grow further and help us continue fighting through these turbulent times in our global economy.'
Amit Jain, Vice President (Alliances), Indiamart.com
'We had very strong traffic in our booth all four days of the show. There was a good mix of larger, medium and smaller accounts; and, they were all seriously interested in doing business. Possibly our best MAGIC yet.'
David Stone, President/CEO, Solid Stone Fabrics
'We enjoyed our time at Sourcing at MAGIC. We made lots of new contacts and traffic was steady throughout the four days of the show.'
Ray Ferriola, Owner, Donray Printing
'Sourcing at MAGIC gives me a great opportunity to meet big buyers of USA, Mexico, Europe and more!'
