I know all of us are appreciative to Furniture Today and the sponsors that helped put this conference together. I think I have visited all of the expo booths and enjoyed learning about some that I had no idea about. Also, I am pleased to see many names of retailers that I have met. Can’t wait to do this in person, but for now, this really worked.
