Email support coming in

The emails are starting to come in on the Atlanta date change...please post comments below.

A womenswear manufacturer says: Why can’t they go back to the same dates they have had for 20 years….august 23 -26….the move to august 10 puts them on top of Chicago and la….it is ridiculous…

***I agree!!!!!

Another one: I absoluyly agree with you, however, by refusing to identify yourself you areshowing that you are unwilling to stand behind your position.who are you and what market sector do you serve? I will not participate in an unidentified protest.

***Well I am a special occasion guy and did not identify myself because ATLANTA management has a practice of retaliation against those that do not support them. I need to do business in both markets to be successful so that's why this is so absurd.

I believe this is a "lose - lose - lose" for manufactuters, reps and buyers. Many of our retail buyers shop both markets. Retailers want to visit their favorite showrooms in each market and having the shows the same weekend prevents this. Dallas and Atlanta markets will both suffer on account of this. Who cares about "who has to move to accomodate the other" - just do it for the good of the market.

This is a blog that means nothing, we are a bunch of anonymus people venting, yes I have contacted the "powers at be", who cares, we have no organization and no power, who is willing not to open on the new market days?? I can't afford to...who is willing to go elsewhere??? I can't afford too...so who are we kidding? They have us over a barrel, and they know it......until we have some kind of unification, nothing will ever happen....consequently, nothing will ever happen, I will make the most of it, what choice do I have??

The pressure to choose which market to attend with what samples to see which customers dilutes the total effort and is not good for anyone.

Pressure can bust the pipes or make diamonds.

This kind of pressure busts the pipes!

Btw, welcome to the blogosphere! I've been blogging about apparel manufacturing for over two years (at Fashion-Incubator.com) so if you have any blogging related questions, feel free to contact me. I wish more manufacturers would blog; the more, the merrier.
