The International Textile Alliance (ITA) will revisit a virtual roundtable discussion on the effects of COVID-19 on the home furnishings industry, and how doing business has changed during 2020.
The effects of COVID-19 on the home furnishings business have been far and wide – closing of retail stores, manufacturing plant closures, cancelation of industry shows – to name a few. Join ITA for an interactive discussion on how business has changed in “the new normal” from the perspectives of a furniture retailer, upholstery manufacturer, textile manufacturer and a textile converter.
The discussion will be moderated by textile industry veteran Jack Eger, Senior Vice President of Crypton Home Fabrics. Panelists will include Jeff Harris of Furnitureland South, George Jordan of The MT Company, Kathryn Richardson of Libeco, Patrick Shelton of Valdese Weavers, and Greg Thomases of Swavelle Mill Creek.
