The team have returned from the US after a hugely successful trade mission to Las Vegas, Atlanta and New York where they met with current clients and many prospective ones, took part in workshops and presented at webinars. It was a busy trip!
It started at the Las Vegas Market. Ahead of speaking about healthy buildings and how we occupy these buildings at the NAHB International Builders’ Show, Dr John McKeon met up with clients Pegasus Home Fashions. The market was packed with potential textile clients who were interested to know that our asthma & allergy friendly Certification Program is now featured on Wayfair as one of their designated verifications and third party certifications.
And we had the opportunity to meet with Ali Richert from Wayfair at NAHB International Builders’ Show. It was great to meet in person to build towards our webinar on Feb 16th with Wayfair suppliers and team.
Healthy Indoor Air was a strong theme at this year’s show and it is inspiring to be working with retailers who value third party certifications in this area.
The next stop was The International Surface Event (TISE) : SURFACES | StonExpo | Tile Expo
where our clients Tarkett
showcased their newest additions
to their CERTIFIED portfolio. It was great to meet up with Bradley Gean, Marketing Specialist, from the Tarkett Home team to discuss how the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program is resonating with their customers. Thanks to Roxane Spears, Beth Doehner, Rachel Berking, Jason Surratt and the whole Tarkett team for their hospitality and continued commitment to improving indoor air quality through science and leadership.
