On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast, we’re excited to bring you the State of the Industry Panel discussion from h+h Americas, a new trade show for the crafts industry that took place in Chicago June 22-24, 2022.
h+h Americas is presented by Koelnmesse Inc., one of the world’s largest trade show organizations, as you’ll hear in the opening remarks. For the first time, this show came to North America and Craft Industry Alliance was the strategic partner.
The State of the Industry panel was the kickoff event. It focused on the crafts industry: where it’s come from, where it is now, and what the future holds. There were four speakers: Vickie Howell, Maureen Miller, Trisha Malcolm, and David Gilliver, and the panel was moderated by Abby Glassenberg. We are pleased to bring it to you in audio format for the podcast.
