h+h americas is an event organizer for professionals with a focus on the soft craft industries in North America. Their very first event is planned for June 22nd – 24th, 2022 in Chicago, IL. While this may be their first event here, their sister company of h+h Cologne is a long running tradeshow in Europe.
In November of 2021, h+h americas announced a partnership with The National Needle Arts Association (TNNA). The announcement comes at a bit of a surprise after TNNA had to suspend operations in early 2020. From the h+h americas press release: “After a turbulent 18 months due to the pandemic, h+h Americas provides a unique opportunity to stimulate our business again so we are eager to work with the organizer to make this happen.” – Courtney Kelley, President TNNA
“We are confident this partnership will be valuable in our effort to deliver a high quality and diverse trade show and educational program.” – Mette Petersen, President and Managing Director Koelnmesse Inc.
The year 2022 continues to have a positive outlook for the fiber arts industry with the arrival of h+h americas and continued alliances.
