Why We Go to Trade Shows

SPESA is traveling to Barcelona this week for ITMA 2019. It's one of many shows SPESA attends and we want to talk a little bit about why.

1) We attend trade shows to support our members. Nine SPESA members are exhibiting at ITMA this year and we want to do whatever we can to help them meet customers, make connections, and make the most out of the time and money they invested to be there.

2) We attend to make connections of our own — with other industry associations, with prospective members who could both benefit from SPESA membership and help us expand and diversify our membership. And, sometimes, to meet face-to-face with current members whom we only know via email.

3) We attend to promote Texprocess Americas — the trade show we co-produce and believe is the best sewn products & equipment trade show covering the entire industry from concept to delivery — and seek inspiration on how to make it the best possible resource for our attendees.

So, for these and many other reasons, we will gladly keep racking up those frequent flyer miles. If you are attending ITMA this week, we hope you will give us a shout. We want to meet you!
