What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, the saying goes.
I’m attending the International Window Coverings Expo and it’s a fairly tame affair so not much to disclose in terms of high jinks! That’ll be later, after dark!
There aren’t many new innovations on the shutter side of things. A stackable shutter was about the height of it and I’m not sure if that’s going to catch on. Too plastic for me, huge amount of engineering and parts and too much to go wrong with it. I’ll see if I can post a video of it in action but I’ve added a picture below for now.
Attending these shows is more about making contacts and meeting people you deal with but never got to meet or haven’t met for many years.
And of course there’s the chance you’ll see some fantastic new and innovative products.
As for the stackable plastic shutter, that will definitely be staying in Vegas.
