It was a busy time for us this fall as we traveled to different events across the U.S. As we have mentioned before, attending these industry trade shows and conferences is an ideal way to hear what certain industries need in their products and to discuss options and possible solutions we can provide. This fall we attended three events:
2015 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition: This land power exposition and professional development forum offered presentations and discussions on military and national security subjects as well as workshops and business meetings. Over 26,000 attendees came from around the world to Washington, D.C. for this event and we were proud to be part of it.
SEAMS National Networking Conference: This event was held on October 29-31 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN. At SEAMS, the National Association for the U.S. Sewn Products and Textiles Industries, we participated in educational opportunities, conferences, and networking events designed around the theme of “Spurring Opportunities for Growth.” The conference highlighted strategies, relationships and takeaways to drive growth and improve business.
AIX Expo: The Aircraft Interiors Expo took place on November 4 & 5 in Seattle, WA. Showcasing the latest designs in aircraft interiors, this event allowed us to network with others in the industry to discuss industry trends and where the aircraft interiors business and the airlines industry is moving toward for the future.
Although very different, these three events all cross over into the textile industry. With the connections and information learned from attending these events, we are better able to serve our customers in developing the products they require.
