Hi, Greetings from Lancashire England the birthplace of the industrial revolution. Where cotton was first imported into Europe from the USA and woven into the fabric that clothed the world.
By our very history we are no stranger to epidemics and industrial change but in my 30+ years in the Industry it is the first one that I have personally experienced.
Our factories are still operating, although with fewer staff, as we have been asked to stay open by the NHS to supply much needed anti-microbial fabric for the new Covid-19 wards that are being built. They say that necessity is the mother of invention and our production of antimicrobial fabric that kills the virus on impact has led to us into a new industry manufacturing very safe and comfortable face masks that not only perform but are comfortable and look good too.
We all want to get back to work and we shall, as long as we can respect the virus by ensuring that we socially distance.
So as employers we must ensure safe working environments for our staff and respect peoples space. Then we will get through this sooner rather than later. There is nothing I want more than to see our staff come back to the office, and to personally see our customers open up their hotels and restaurants again. Stay safe everyone.

Greetings from LIXIL Corporation! Hope everyone is adapting to working from home. Yes it can be a little challenging with kids at home, dogs barking in the back ground when on a conference call etc. the struggle is real. However we all need to protect ourselves as well as our families to fight the virus.
With that being said I am here to provide you with any plumbing and china specs you need for upcoming projects. Lixil is the parent company for American Standard, GROHE and DXV. If you need a spec book, samples or simply have questions, please give me a call. I actually miss the social interaction!!! The best way to reach is via email email@example.com or phone 404-623-3142. Stay well and safe.
Greetings from your industry partner, ARTERIORS. We’ve all weathered the storm in other tough situations and this one will be no different. ARTERIORS staff are all working remotely from their homes to do our part in stopping the spread of the Coronavirus. My hope is that by being vigilant against this outbreak we are contributing to a return to normalcy that will take place sooner rather than later if the virus is controlled.
In the meantime, best wishes to everybody affected both personally and professionally by this virus. Stay strong and stay well! Jeanne
I hope that everyone is safe, healthy and staying positive! I wanted to pass along a link to a website that is temporarily offering free Ivy League online courses. There is a wide variety of topics and although most are probably not related to our profession, I though that some people might be interested in just investing in themselves for a few hours a week while they are exercising social distancing. For a small fee, you can also earn a certificate for some courses (not bad for your resume!). Some take place within a specific schedule timeframe and others are on demand.
Here is the link: https://www.classcentral.com/collection/ivy-league-moocs
Best to all! Jeanne
Thank you Jeanne Varney … love you lots!

Thank you, NEWH for reaching out to all of us in the hospitality design community. In this unprecedented time of uncertainty it is critical that we all stick together and support one another.

I just joined NEWH and was so looking forward to meeting you all!
I run a company called Art in Offices which provides art to enrich spaces, inspire people, and empower brands.

If you want to see what type of art we have then please visit http://www.artinoffices.com/artists

Hope everything is holding tight in there.. we all are trying to keep up with what’s going on around the globe. When it comes to safety, we all must put that first and reprioritize our list.
However sometimes we have to be responsible. I just ran into a problem with a client and I’m sure many of us did because of that epidemic situation.
I was supposed to finish fully renovated house by the end of this week as my client are renting on day-to-day basis type of a rent.
Many of my handymen gave up & I didn’t blame them! Some are still coming every other day to finish up the work.
I’m taking responsibility & I go there almost everyday, hoping to finish & turn the project as promised!
Stay safe everyone if you are home or if you have to go to work!
ASID President Elect – Michigan Chapter
From all of us at NEXT Events we look forward to hosting you in the future. Stay strong everyone!

I love this community! Thank you for creating this.
Sending much LOVE, SUPPORT, and PRAYERS to all of us in this precious hospitality industry. So much unknown, but we are strong and smart and will get through this together. We have had several go-to-meetings this week, along with working with our on-line tools and these worked really well, although not a face-to-face meeting, it was so comforting to hear each familiar voice and encourage each other. We at Signature Flooring are here to help you in any way possible.
Praying we all stay safe and healthy in the days, weeks and months ahead!
I/We will Survive!
Working remotely and providing product knowledge and sourcing virtual is the new norm for sometime I feel we all our facing.
Here to help!
Here to pray and stay positive and be healthy everyone.

We have been through many ups and downs in this industry, and there will be many more. Ride the waves as they come. Praying that everyone is safe and healthy during these times. Unfortunately this will affect many jobs, but hopefully once we are through this pandemic we will all bounce back and be stronger than ever. The hospitality community is strong, and resilient. Stay tough, and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. Be safe. A
We have all been through good times and bad! We will NOT let this or anything else beat any of us! Take good care of yourselves! Focus on Family, Friends, The Blessings we have, Our Beliefs, and focus on safe health practices! I spent many years in this industry and also in the healthcare industry! We can all work together and stay well! Blessings to one and all!
Nice to hear from everyone! Stay well’
Many industry clients requested limited or no drop-ins, cancelation of all Product Knowledge and Tabletop events until further notice here in Las Vegas. *
I’m always available via phone, text, email, Microsoft Teams, and Skype to perform PKs, setup your fabrication shop to complete #Masterofstone, send @caesarstoneus samples to your home /office & to your clients home / office – and be of assistance anyway I possibly can.

Thank you all for the strength of your words! Our hospitality, design, floristry ; and many others in the people service industry is getting hit hard right now! But we will come out on the other side stronger!!! My prayers are with everyone. Stay healthy and safe.
Van Dresser Company in Atlanta practices weekly AFFIRMATIONS to keep our teams working with a positive unity. This weeks affirmation was so on point – “Be grateful for what you can do.” We certainly feel that way and want our community to know that we are grateful for the reps and manufacturers who have reached out to help us continue practicing our craft. And for our clients who are working hand-in-hand with us to ensure project progression.
NEWH is a strong community – don’t hesitate to reach out to one another for help – there are lots of “helpers” among this hospitality tribe! – And a big thank you to Amiel for reaching out to collect masks for the medical community.
Hospitals are running out of masks. Do you have a supply of them you can donate? We have just a few but if all of us in the NARI community donate our supply it would be a huge help to the medical community. Please contact us via our website: http://www.arteriors.net . We will be collecting and or providing contact information for collection places to send them.
Let’s all do our part, they need them a lot more than we do. Thank you!
For most of us, we have seen the ups and downs of the Hospitality industry. The current crisis with C-19 is different and silent this year.
One thing that I have learned, our NEWH group is a strong organization during difficult situations. Key members like AFX/Stonegate, Floor 13, and Stickley are available and ready to serve our NEWH family.
WE will all get through this season in life and
DO IT together.
Better days are ahead.
Rosemary checking in from Momentum Textiles & Wallcovering. We are all working from home, and here to work with clients on projects and to answer questions. As of now, all of our manufacturing is running smoothly.
Wishing everyone a safe journey through these uncharted waters.

Greeting from Stickley Contract! Hope our entire hospitality community is doing well during these challenging times! Please be aware that all three of our factories are fully operational with available production capacity. If you have a project that has been met with challenges please reach out to us! Look forward to seeing everyone once things get back to normal and we can begin connecting in person again!
I know we are all going thru a tough moment right now with the Coronavirus and trying to maintain normalcy. The reality is we still have to do our jobs and I know working from home may not allow you all the resources you are used to having at your fingertips. If you are working on a project and you have plumbing to specify, please reach out to me and let me assist you. Like you, I’m at home and I want to help you in any way I can. So…if you need a spec pack, sample mailed out or just have a question for a project, feel free to reach out and let me help you. I’m always here to assist. We’re all in this together and we’ll get through this hopefully sooner than later. Feel free to call or email me with requests or questions.
