It was another great year at IFAI. We were really excited to celebrate all that is new at MMI Textiles with everyone at the show. We greeted attendees in our brand new booth. Check out the picture below. You will notice we also have an updated logo. The most exciting update of all is our newly designed website. The website is designed to help visitors quickly and easily find information on the products and services we offer.
As we celebrated the future at the MMI Textiles booth we also took time to honor the past 100 years of IFAI. The 100th Year Celebration Party was a tribute to an industry that has made innovations that have had impact of the lives of many. Our president, Amy Hammond along with Bob Rosania from Ehmke Manufacturing took time to thank all of the sponsors and lead the room in a Happy Birthday sing-a-long.
Not only did show attendees have the opportunity to celebrate they could also give back. The Industrial Fabrics Foundation’s fall fund raiser took place on November 6, 2012. The first ever IFF Indy Fund Raiser at F1 Boston gave participants a chance to drive on a professional indoor kart racing track. Over $17,000 were raised for IFF scholarships and industry research.
Another first at the IFAI 2012 was the Show Stopper Awards. Awards are given to best products from the show exhibitors. We entered our 1000D Perforated Nylon fabric. Although we did not win we were pleased to received positive feedback about the product.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth. We enjoyed greeting friends both new and old. We will see you next year in Orlando!
