The Textiles Of NeoCon 08

6.23.08 | This year, with high fuel prices on everyone's mind, we asked companies where their products were made. We were surprised, and delighted, to discover that between 70% and 80% of all commercial textiles are manufactured in the USA. It turns out that there are many creative, facile mills scattered all over the country and they are doing a healthy business despite the fact that two major domestic mills went under last year.

NeoCon 08 Gems from the Sems

6.23.08 | The seminars at NeoCon give us a pop look at things we really ought to know, but nevertheless persistently elude either fluent familiarity or comfortable expertise. So sign up we do and in we go. The air conditioning is good and acoustics work well as long as speakers use the mikes properly and you don't sit too close to the doors. There seats are often too close together, but this too has the value of tacitly reminding us to renew our vows of weight loss.

Delights of NeoCon

6.16.08 | We begin our NeoCon WTF 08 coverage with a few delights, moments that, for whatever reason, caught our fancy and provided a small emotional bump to our already pumped up autonomic system. By their very nature, these delights are strictly personal, and are gather from our staff, so take them for what they are worth. But they are our small tribute to the collective efforts of the Merchandise Mart, the exhibitors, the keynote speakers and seminar leaders, and yes, even to the attendees, all of whom were essential elements in our industry’s greatest show.
