The International Textile Alliance (ITA) convened virtually earlier this week to review its safety and layout plans for Showtime before the market’s Nov. 15-18 dates.
Presented by Carrie Dillon, manager director of the ITA, and Kelly DiFoggio, president of the board of directors, the alliance started the webinar with information about registration for the event, with the ITA strongly encouraging all visitors to pre-register for the show online to prevent lines onsite. Exhibitors will receive access to the show by showing their registration confirmation and valid ID, and they may request a printed badge when there is no line at registration.
For those registering in person, three separate registration areas will be available at Market Square at the first floor entrance, second floor entrance and at Market Square courtyard.
When registering and upon entry to any and all buildings being used during Showtime each day, attendees’ temperatures will be taken, and those with a temperature of less than 100.4 will be provided with a colored wristband to identify that they have been checked. Wristband color will change daily, and attendee with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed access to any building or showroom.
