Outlook Conference 2018 RECAP

Perfect weather, a big crowd, a little golf, excellent wine and of course, fresh insights and rewarding interaction united industry leaders at Outlook 2018. A five-year record of a 120 participants gathered at the lovely Chateau Elan for an exclusive outlook and walked away reinvigorated. They all became part of a bigger conversation as they:

  • Explored various viewpoints, policy changes and global challenges, discovering new relationships and innovative ways to approach the industry.
    “Really enjoyed the broad spectrum of information presented by Ron Houle and John Connaughton. Eric Spackey’s presentation was also very informative and directly relevant to my job.”
  • Created real lasting connections; finding trusted advisors and engaged peers through enjoyable activities and engaging discussion.
  • Developed a stronger sense of security in their own knowledge and ability to participate in the industry in profitable and cooperative ways.

Tim Offray, EVP of Business Operations at OTEX Specialty Narrow Fabrics, Inc. sums up his experience:

“The Outlook Conference provided an excellent forum to connect with industry experts and broaden my knowledge on a variety of valuable and important subject matters.  As a first-time attendee, I was very impressed by the quality of the speakers, the insight and knowledge they shared, as well as their enthusiasm for the new and unique opportunities that lie ahead for the U.S. textile industry.”
