SEAMS, the National Association for the US sewn products and textile industries, is set to celebrate its 50th anniversary at the annual spring networking conference entitled “Shaping the Next 50 Years”, on May 16 and 17, 2017, in North Carolina, exploring future trends and opportunities for diverse sewn products brands, manufacturers, OEMs, and retailers.

Speakers and session details will be announced as they are confirmed at www.seamrs.org, the SEAMS website. Highlights of the planned conference agenda include keynote presentation on trends and predictions delivered by a noted futurist, feature presentations covering trade, government relations, human resources, and more, breakout sessions on several relevant industry topics to choose from, and panel discussion on updates on trends in military, automotive, industrial, and other segments.

To accommodate even the busiest attendees, a new single-day conference program, on May 17, 2017, will be held. SEAMS conference attendees will have the opportunity to introduce their company to all attendees, meet industry-focused benefits providers, and visit special products/services displays during the conference.

SEAMS and HomTex, Inc. president Jeremy Wootten said, “While we will pay tribute to the first 50 years of SEAMS members and industry leadership, we are focusing our conference agenda on how our members and guests can best prepare for and embrace the future. We are happy to be returning to the beautiful and historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville with a newly streamlined agenda that will allow more people to attend and enjoy this wonderful venue. We invite all industry professionals and executives to join us in what promises to be a highly productive and enjoyable industry event.” (GK)
