What's new in the glove industry?

The survey results from the 2013 IGA Glove Symposium reflect our members need and want to be aware of "Textile Industry Advancements." As a result, we are incorporating a session during the 2014 IGA Glove Symposium, where our members and attendees can register for, and have an opportunity to share "What's new" within their company. This is a time to share and discover new products and resources. There are no additional fees to take advantage of this opportunity, but space is limited. If you or your company is interested in presenting your latest and greatest, and would like more information, please contact the IGA offices at (814)328-5208 or email Patty Burdge:
