Prior to joining 3 Day Blinds, Dave Hall, our new CEO had a long career as a senior executive in the trade show industry.  “I walked in Tuesday morning thinking about my past life and all of the logistics that brings an industry show like this together, but I will leave with a much greater understanding of the window treatments industry and products, and an appreciation of the wonderful people I met, including our suppliers, both existing and potential, the inventors that fuel innovation, and also our friendly competitors who always challenge us to be the best we can be and to live our core values,” said Dave as he wrapped up his two day visit.  “I would like to thank Grace McNamara, who has orchestrated this show for years,  the exhibitors who commit time and resources to reaching us through this venue and the fabulous speakers who pull together the seminars that provide education.”

In addition, Window Coverings Safety Council, a group made up of top window coverings executives from across the spectrum of manufacturers, distributors and retailers, held a meeting to discuss advancements in child safety.  “I have been a member of the council for more than a decade, and we continue to make amazing progress in developing safer products and making consumers aware of the child safety issues associated with corded window treatments,” said Mike McCarty, the Director of Engineering at 3 Day Blinds.
