The article focuses on the exhibition Showtime, held in North Calorina in January 2005 which was mainly concerned about the after effects of quota lifting, a measured drop in attendance, and increasing scrutiny of supply chain management. Both customers and exhibitors were curious about prieing and quantity issues as well as the potential for inereased quality concerns. With more Americans, both customers and suppliers, sourcing in China, these concerns take on added significance. For American Century Home, the lifting of quotas means, prices will be even more competitive, said Tom Finneran, president.
