International Textile Alliance revises dates of upcoming spring Showtime market
to June 12-16 to coincide with new High Point Market dates.
March 23, 2020, HIGH POINT, N.C. – In response to the ever-evolving state of the home furnishings industry related to the COVID-19 situation, the International Textile Alliance (ITA) has moved the dates of its upcoming spring Showtime® Market to June 12-16, 2020. The new dates coincide with the recently revised dates of the High Point Market of June 12-14, 2020 and give attendees the opportunity to attend both major events in one trip.
“In an effort to support our industry, community and stakeholders, ITA and its board of directors has decided to move the date of our spring Showtime market to coincide with the new High Point Market dates,” explained Kelly DiFoggio, president of ITA’s board of directors and director of sales and marketing for Yarn & Loom. “Our main concern is the health and wellbeing of attendees and the High Point/ Triad community and our decision reflects an effort to simplify travel and participation for attendees of both of these markets. Our new dates of June 12-16 include three days of overlap with the revised High Point Market and two additional days afterward.”
ITA Member showrooms will be available by appointment during these new dates for the spring Showtime market and temporary exhibitors will also be on display as usual. ITA reserves the right to change this decision and reschedule the event based on the future status of the COVID-19 situation, and will communicate this immediately.
