Miami Beach, FL – January 1, 2018 – Michael Schneider has taken over the publishing role at Fabrics & Furnishings International (F&FI) from his father Eric Schneider. Eric will continue as publisher emeritus and editor-in-chief.

Michael and his dad worked together at Sipco Publications Inc. during the years 2008—2013 and launched Boutique Design Magazine which was subsequently sold in 2013 to ST Media Group. He also helped launch BDNY, a successful trade show at the Javits Center in New York, now with more than 700 exhibitors. He will continue in his role at Boutique Design as an independent sales agent while developing new business opportunities with F&FI.

Michael will be responsible for sales and marketing, while Eric will handle the editorial responsibility. He is also planning to launch a major industry event in 2018 to compliment the magazine.
