CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Finding strategies to help the U.S. hosiery industry compete and survive against growing global competition was the theme of“Hosiery World,” the daylong international hosiery conference that preceded the three-day International Hosiery Exhibition show last month at the Charlotte Convention Center.
With a record conference attendance of nearly 450 key domestic and global hosiery executives, speakers outlined changes occurring in the hosiery industry in recent years, including the dramatic increase in exports of hosiery from China to the U.S.
