Furniture Today will broadcast an exclusive webcast on June 5 by Jerry Epperson on the "State of the Industry" in 2013, sponsored by Nationwide Marketing Group. Click here for details.
"2013 began with lots of challenges, mostly out of Washington, D.C. regarding higher withholding taxes, sequestration and later tax refunds," said Epperson. "Even so, the main drivers that create furniture demand will be much stronger in 2013 than in any year since 2007 with more household formations, higher employment and a much stronger housing market both in new and existing home sales"
"Thus, while housing and home furnishings lagged the economic recovery in 2010 and 2011, the home sales last year will yield better home furnishings sales this year, as will improved home sales early this year."
This timely webinar will discuss the external factors driving our industry and the changes that we see coming this year and next.
Registration is now open. Click here to sign up. Space is limited and early registrants will also receive a free copy of Jerry's recent HomeCentric report.
The exclusive analysis studies the prospects for the American home over the coming decade as both lifestyles and new technologies drive more people to work, study, shop, communicate and entertain from the home. It goes into detail on the changing demographics of our population and shows some of the new technology that will be changing all our lives soon.
