Global Connections to shift timing, location next year

White Plains, N.Y. -- Global Connections, the showcase for Asian and other international suppliers of textiles and related products, has set new dates and locations for 2007 and 2008.

Global Connections will run May 8-10, at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando Fla., in conjunction with both the Gourmet Housewares Show and the National Hardware Show. In 2008, the three shows will run May 6-8, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Aligning Global Connections with the Gourmet Housewares Show and the National Hardware Show will create a comprehensive market for home-focused industries," said Penny Sikalis, vp, group show manager for George Little Management (GLM), which owns and manages Global Connections and the Gourmet Housewares Show.
