That’s a Wrap: IFAI Expo

It was great seeing so many of you in person at IFAI Expo in Charlotte earlier this month. Thank you for making time to visit the Trivantage booth to reconnect directly. The energy and enthusiasm on display throughout the week reminded us of just how meaningful one-on-one conversations are, as evidenced by the hugs, laughter, and fist bumps both in our booth and across the show floor.

In case you were unable to attend the Expo, here are some of the product and service highlights from the Trivantage team:

Trust Seaquest for tough marine upholstery projects like exterior marine cushions and boat interiors. Seaquest also works well in hospitality, healthcare, automotive, residential, and commercial markets, for applications both indoors and out. Please contact your sales representative for a sample card featuring all 12 new colors, as well as 10 colors that will be discontinued.

Finally, we provided a preview our updated Sunbrella Shade + Mayfield Collection. This premium selection of Sunbrella shade and marine fabrics available exclusively from Trivantage is scheduled to launch later this year. Mayfield Collection fabrics are fade-resistant, easy-to-clean and UV protective, meaning they are versatile enough to meet any awning, shade, marine or upholstery application with a fresh color palette. We will keep you posted once the collection is available.
