Our team traveled to New York for the annual BDNY hospitality show at the Javits Center and it was fantastic! Attendance far exceeded anyone’s expectations and the energy was strong. The exhibitors and attendees alike were optimistic about a rebound in hospitality business for 2022 and beyond.

The Spring, rescheduled to Summer, High Point market has now concluded and in our view it was a SUCCESS!
With lots of vacant showrooms, many exhibitors not showing, unprecedented June timing (first week of summer break for young families), a robust premarket, and no international visitors, we were not expecting a strong market. And Thursday-Friday was slow. But then… the crowds showed up and stayed. Until Tuesday! Positive attitudes from buyers, designers and retailers highlight ...
