Over the next few months, we’ll have one major thing on our minds: Texprocess Americas. Taking place May 17-19, 2022 — two years after its originally scheduled date — we’re thrilled for the opportunity to get back together. We got a taste of trade shows back in August 2021 when Techtextil North America came through Raleigh. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with others and reinforced the value of trade shows for our industry.
In lieu of a traditional SPESA Speaks this month, we’re turning to a video chat with SPESA’s President Michael McDonald and SPESA’s Chairman Ed Gribbin. Michael and Ed discussed the value of trade shows, favorite memories from past Texprocess Americas events, and how the trade show circuit will look different in a post-Covid (or Covid endemic) era. We invite you to watch, and we hope it makes our readers as excited about Texprocess Americas as it does us.
The conversation between Michael and Ed is the second video in a three-part series. The first interview which touched on Ed’s career and his outlook for the industry can be found here.
