About American Events, Inc.:
American Events, Inc. was established in 1994 in Portland, Oregon out of the need to connect the materials and components suppliers with the apparel and footwear manufacturers.
Suppliers who attended the semi-annual Nike vendor fair for many years since the early 1980's, decided to prolong their exhibition in Portland, Oregon and invite other manufacturers to attend a mini show at the same locale. Hisham Muhareb, who was a materials manager at Nike during the early 1990's, along with his wife Kari Muhareb, envisioned an idea to take over the Nike vendor fair and the new mini show (NW Fabric Fair) which followed and expand on it.
