The XVIII edition of the Apparel Sourcing Show, which will be held from May 19 - 21, will generate about $100 million in business.

The event, which is to be held at Hotel Tikal Futura’s Convention Center, will be attended by entrepreneurs from Colombia, Mexico, Central America and especially the United States.

An article in SigloXXI.com reported: "While the expectation is that business for about $100 million will be generated, [Antonio] Malouf (chairman of the organizing committee) considers that the most important thing in this issue of the fair is to keep the line to major markets such as the United States open."

About 200 companies will be represented on the exhibition floor, and an attendance of about 4,500 people is expected.
