When Specialty Fabrics Review debuted the new look for the print edition in January, I asked you to stay tuned for more changes to Review’s e-newsletter and website. We’re rolling out those enhancements, first with the e-newsletter, so please take the time to open the latest edition to explore a revitalized presentation of the week’s industry news, plus highlights of the best content from the current issue of Review.
Review’s redesign plans were underway before the pandemic made its way to the United States, but the events of 2020 intensified the need to rethink how we provide you with the information you need to be successful in your locality and the global marketplace. Many thought leaders have noted that COVID-19 didn’t change trends so much as it accelerated them: Zoom launched in 2013, but most of us didn’t learn how to use it until one bewildering week in late March. Grocery delivery services and restaurant delivery platforms existed too, but we came to depend on them in 2020. And when we polled industry leaders—before the pandemic—about what they liked about Review and what we could do better, we learned that most readers still prefer the print magazine, but they wanted more options to be able to share Review content electronically with remote colleagues. Then, quite suddenly, everyone who could work from a laptop was working remotely. Many Review readers were no longer at the locations where their subscriptions were delivered—and they may never go back to a shared workspace in the pre-2020 sense. A dynamic online industry magazine is more essential than ever.
