IBMA forms industry-wide Response Group

As a follow-up to its industry-wide effort and letter protesting the possibility of tariffs, the IBMA has formed an Industry Rapid Response Team Facebook Group to maintain industry momentum, and to address additional issues, including addressing the "one off" gift products imported from China that avoid paying duties and taxes. .

The IBMA initially coordinated  this effort with the American Bridal and Prom Industry Association, Better Bridal Group, BridalBoutiques.us, National Bridal Retailers Association, National Bridal Sale Event and VOWS Magazine. Current individual members of the group include:

Christina Blanchette, Maggie Sottero Designs 
Tracey Burke, NY Bride and Groom of Columbia
Bruce Campbell, BrideClick/IBMA 
Ann Campeau, Strut Bridal
Sally Conant, Association of Wedding Gown Specialists
Lynn Crandall, The Bridal Collection
Jan Ferracuti, Bridal Elegance
Robin Garrison, I Do Bridal 
Sandra Gonzalez, Sparkle Bridal Couture 
Peter Grimes , Vows magazine
Shari Kendall, In White
Steven Lang, Mon Cheri Bridals
Sue Maslowski, Jay West
Michelle McFarland, National Bridal Retailers Association
Shelly Mueller, Becker's Bridal 
Jacqui Wadsworth, Bridal Boutiques.us 
Larry Warshaw, Justin Alexander/IBMA

This group will be sponsoring a lounge area at the upcoming Chicago National Bridal Market, and encourage all to stop by voice your opinions on industry issues critical to you.

Organizations/members sponsoring the lounge include the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, ABPIA, IBMA, NBRA, NBSE and VOWS Magazine.
