Soundings Trade Only again will livestream interviews from the show. Editor-in-chief Michael Verdon conducted 32 interviews last year.

“We were able to share a lot of new trends and innovations last year,” Verdon said. “We’ll be going to booths, looking at new products from the DAME awards, and interviewing industry leaders about current market conditions and the latest trends. Our livestreaming provides a global perspective of what is happening across multiple markets.”

The interviews can be viewed on Soundings Trade Only’s Facebook page, at and on the daily Trade Only Today e-newsletter.
