Los Angeles International Textile Show - Guatemala Seminar Review

April 9, 2012

Guatemala Seminar - Los Angeles International Textile Show - March 27th
      The Guatemala Trade Office hosted a seminar at the Los Angeles International Textile Show: "Why Guatemala? The Duty Free Sourcing Hub". The California Fashion Association ('CFA') organized the seminar; it included a renowned panel of Guatemala's industry leaders and CFA experts regarding the supply chain of services available from Guatemala. The panel, moderated by Walter Wilhelm, Chairman of Walter Wilhelm Associates, discussed speed-to-market from Guatemala's fashion-garment industry, among other benefits to sourcing from Guatemala. Guatemala plays a key role in CAFTA sourcing, and is the 'hub' for all supply chain requirements in the region, including garment testing.

Panel: Tony Malouf, CEO, Tejidos Corporativos; Sergio De La Torre, Guatemala Minister of Economy; Carlos Arias, CEO, Denimatrix Guatemala; Enrique Segarra, CEO, Accessorios Textiles; Vincent Iacopella, Managing Director, The Janel Group; Gabrielle Sempietro, Associate, Walter Wilhelm Associates
