Testimonials

“The HFPA has spent the last three months seeking out an exciting interactive platform for the March 2021 Virtual Home Textiles Market.  The result of that search is a partnership with HTT and Intrado, an industry-leading virtual market platform, to deliver a world-class experience to the industry.
We applied our learnings from last market to create a more enhanced experience that will be part of the Home Textiles Market going forward – even when live market returns in September 202. The combination of the newest products, educational programming and networking opportunities makes this the place to be for the March Home Textiles Market. We look forward to your participation in this exciting event.”   — Jeff Kaufman, President  |  Home Fashion Products Association

“While we will miss the energy and productivity of meeting in person with our suppliers at market, we do think meeting virtually is the next best thing. We look forward to connecting with our supplier partners.”    — Niraj Shah, CEO and Co-Founder  |  Wayfair

“While we’re disappointed that we won’t be able to meet with our suppliers face-to-face, we think the HFPA/HTT NY Virtual market is a great alternative and we look forward to seeing our resources in a new way.”  — Scott Kolsky, Executive Vice President | GM Home  |  Kohl’s

“Due to the limited amount of travel that our buying teams will experience this year, we find it very comforting that the HFPA is considering providing their customers a virtual option to facilitate a home textiles market. We have been provided mid-year product reviews from a few active resources and it has been extremely useful to review and evaluate new design options in each of the product categories being offered by those suppliers.”  — Kevin Kuehl, SVP/GMM Home  |  Big Lots
