The Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI) is to hold a national swimwear and performance sportswear seminar in Leicestershire next year.
The announcement for the ASBCI event, which is predicted to raise over £15,000 for the economy, followed successful negotiations with the event bidding team at Leicester Shire Promotions.
Around 120 delegates are expected to attend the one-day event at the Barcelo Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire on 9 March 2011.
ASBCI event director said: "We are delighted to be holding our event in Leicestershire. Leicester, Leicestershire and the East Midlands have long been associated with the textiles industry. This and the county’s central location for our UK members made it the ideal choice for next year’s event."
Leicester Shire Promotions chief executive Martin Peters added: "Our event bidding team proactively targets national associations, groups and industries looking to hold major seminars, events and conferences in UK destinations. The opportunity to work with ASBCI was generated by discussions with key figures in the UK textile industry and we look forward to working with them in 2011 and for future events in Leicester and Leicestershire."
