NORWALK, Conn. (Jan. 3, 2019) The fourth annual Performance Textile Fair, co-located with the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show, will be held Jan. 23-25, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. The Fair will provide a unique marketplace for apparel product development executives to uncover the latest trends, as well as source performance and technical fabrics by international textile companies specializing in athletic and golf-related apparel materials.


The positive textile industry response to the Performance Textile Fair in its first few years resulted in the successful launch of the first U.S. Functional Fabric Fair Powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS® in July 2018, when 1,159 apparel industry attendees from 31 countries sourced high-performance, functional fabrics and accessories from 70 exhibitors at the Javits Center in New York City.

Additionally, the popular Material Science Center will return to the Performance Textile Fair at the PGA Merchandise Show to showcase the latest fabric innovations and technologies within illuminated wall displays, while offering attendees the opportunity to touch and feel swatches from key product developers.
