Messe Frankfurt North America 2016 Highlights

2016 was a year filled with excitement and growth for Messe Frankfurt North America! From hosting ten shows to adding a new valuable employee to our team. Here are five highlights from this past year.

1. We added new shows
As our company continues to grow, we added two shows in 2016 to further expand our already diverse portfolio. In August we announced our partnership with fashion industry veterans, Arnold and Bruce Zimberg and launched Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale which will showcase value and off-price merchandise, giving global retailers the opportunity to network with brand-name apparel, accessory and footwear companies in one location. Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale will have two editions every year: Spring and Fall. Continuing the partnership between Avanprint Paris and World Textile Information Network (WTin), we launched Avanprint USA to bring together the digital printing pioneers of North America’s top apparel design and sourcing professional in New York City.

2. We welcomed Patrick Nohilly as our new Co-President and CFO
Amidst launching shows in August and September, we added a new member to our team, Patrick Nohilly, who now oversees our company with Co-President and CEO, Dennis Smith.

3. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary
Together with our parent company, Messe Frankfurt GmbH, we celebrated a successful milestone of serving the North American market for 25 years. Co-President and CEO Dennis Smith thanked our talented staff in Atlanta, Mexico City, and Alberta, as well as the many others that have worked with us in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico over the years.
