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 3M brand promise of “Science Applied to Life” and belief in third party certification helps eliminate the ‘confusion of claims’ that exists around uncertified products that claim to support a healthier indoor environment. The consumer is demanding CERTIFIED products like 3M Filtrete to fulfil their need for healthy buildings and homes. Thanks to all the team that were at the 3M booth – Alana Mitchell, Douglas Huntley, Maureen Rariden, Kelly Ip and Estefania Fernandez 🇨🇴 – for their time and generosity.
We would like to thank our hosts Roxane Spears, Beth Doehner and Rachel Berman Berkin for bringing together their team and customers for a unique experiential day. This was all made possible by the fantastic co-presenters on the day, so a big thank you to Melanie Koch, WELL Faculty from International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), Maria Villafranca from Design Museum Everywhere and our own Dr John McKeon. Also a big thank you to Jenna Riemenschneider from our partners the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America for your valued input on the day.
