MIAMI BEACH — Attendees at last month’s Material World Miami trade show sought sourcing options beyond China while still waiting for signs of a recovery in global consumer confidence.
Continued global economic turmoil took a toll on the show, which ended its three-day run at the Miami Beach Convention Center April 23. The number of textile, technology and sourcing exhibitors fell to 268, compared with 400 during last year’s edition.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
