The holiday shortened work week is coming to an end here at AAPN and we will be heading out into the first weekend of 2019 in just a few hours.
As short as the week was, it has still been a busy one. We have begun the preparations for the 2019 AAPN Annual Conference in Miami and as we reported earlier this week have been able to secure amazing rates at one of the top ranked luxury hotels in the world, The Faena Hotel Miami Beach. Those rates will be available in a few weeks but for now we are asking that you keep May 5-7, 2019 free so that you can join us for another great AAPN networking event this spring!
Our members have also been busy this week. AAPN memeber DeSales Trading Company kicked off the year long celebrations that will mark their 50th anniversary and AAPN members Lenzing and Hyosung announced the launch of a collaborative sustainable clothing collection that will debut later this year as well.
We also shared a wonderful article about the importance of the zipper and the role AAPN YKK USA plays in its past, present and future and a great thought piece about the coming of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’.
2018 was a great year for AAPN. We staged some amazing events, including some firsts with the Carolina Mill Tour and our Honduras Summit. We are looking forward to 2019 being even more exciting and successful and we wish the same for all of you. And while we might be out of the office for the weekend very shortly the conversation continues on social media, so please join us there via Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn
