I always leave conference feeling excited and empowered – We are all about learning, service, and having some fun along the way”, said Molly Mays of Rizzy Home and ART Conference 2020 Co-Chair. “Going to ART Conference is my favorite work trip of the year! There’s nothing like being able to cross product category lines and really dig into the weeds about issues that plague our industry. We all have the same roadblocks, and brainstorming solutions so we can all move forward together is imperative and inspiring! The connections made at Conference and the conversations that take place every year help me grow our business creatively and efficiently. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are planning for this year’s Conference”, said Santhi Yarlagadda, KAS Rugs and ART Conference 2020 Co-Chair.Program sponsorships are open for reservations now.
