From February 18-21, 2013, USA-ITA will again partner with SOURCING at MAGIC, the largest and most comprehensive sourcing event in North America. Offering unmatched access to over 40 countries representing the world’s most important markets, SOURCING at MAGIC showcases more than 800 apparel, accessories and footwear resources, conveniently merchandised by country and category: contract and original design manufacturers; fabric, trim and component suppliers; and service and technology providers.
In addition to visiting our booth in the Sourcing Resources Center--where you can chat with our staff about trade policy questions and learn more about membership and our events--we hope you'll also join us at the seminars throughout the week, including one moderated by USA-ITA President Julia K. Hughes.
