In Another World

In another world, we would be in Atlanta right now, welcoming exhibitors and visitors to Texprocess Americas 2020. But instead we are at home, in sweatpants, balancing work, kids, roommates, and a panic-inducing news cycle.

It really does feel like a different world now, one in which none of the old rules or ways of doing business apply. So much of what makes SPESA special is the association’s ability to bring people together — whether through sharing booths at a trade show, brainstorming workforce solutions at a conference, or even simply chatting over an open bar. Not being able to physically be together is a challenge we never foresaw.

So, we have spent the last two months rethinking the value SPESA brings to the sewn products industry. We have moved into virtual education, teamed up with other associations, sought resources to help companies deal with the impact of COVID-19, and helped raise awareness of the great things our members are doing to support their communities.

We hope to see all our members, colleagues, and friends in person very soon. In the meantime, stay safe and know we are here if you need us.
