With constant innovations, companies develop a high-quality range of modern and stylish window coverings that can be coordinated and harmonized to create a designer fashion statement for the home. Introducing a new contoured headrail design with a minimalist powder-coat finish and motorization effortlessly glides draperies across the headrail, which can also be operated by remote, wall switch, or voice activation via smart home tech.
America's largest business networking and educational event, The International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE), is planning to take place on 11-12 th April of 2024 in Texas for the window fashion decorator, designer, retailer, architect, installer, remodeler, and stager. In the prior years' expo, multiple U.S. and international visitors and customers come for the latest products, technology, and education in window coverings, home decor, and accessories.
The latest safety standard, ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2018, enhances window-covering safety by mandating cordless options or inaccessible cords for all stock products sold in stores and online and applies to more than 80 % of window-covering products sold in the U.S. and Canada. On the other hand, European standards, EN 13120:2009+A1:2014, EN 16433:2014, and EN 16434:2014, set to improve the safety of internal window blinds and reduce risk to children.
The persistent innovations in window coverings and accessories and optimistic trade shows and conferences create lucrative prospects for the industry.
