November 22, 2011,
NEW YORK-The Home Fashion Products Association is organizing an event for its Young Professionals (YoPros) to take place during the New York Home Fashions Market next March.
Scheduled for March 4, the event will involve a panel discussion featuring leaders in the home textiles industry, who will speak on topics selected in advance by members of the YoPros. Details of the event are still being determined at this time.
During past market weeks, the YoPros have held showroom "crawls," in which members have explained the scope of their companies, talked about the products and discussed opportunities for young professionals in their companies.
