PLANNING FOR EXPO: The ninth International Hosiery Exposition and Conference will be held at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C., from April 27 through May 1. The event, held every two years, is sponsored by the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers.
About 300 exhibitors who are suppliers to hosiery manufacturers will be on hand at the trade show to discuss technology, packaging, consulting, bar coding and other issues.
The trade show will focus on cutting-edge technology and new support systems and services critical for international competition, a spokeswoman for the NAHM said.
