The announcement from Richard Wright that Hearth and Home Magazine is shutting down hit all of us hard. Everyone in the industry depended on the magazine to break industry news, follow trends, spotlight new products, technologies, and company news. HPBA has had a special relationship with Hearth and Home for many years. They were a pioneer exhibitor at Expo – appearing at every single one for the past 40 years. Their Vesta Awards Ceremony has been a strong advocate of innovation and a highlight of Friday nights at Expo. We’ve used their pages to publish our HPBA Journal to reach out beyond our members to the whole industry. We will miss Richard’s sharp and witty insight into our industry and we hope that the talented reporters that know us so well will find new outlets to showcase their knowledge and writing.
From everyone at HPBA, we send our deepest gratitude to Richard and his exceptional team for all of their work to showcase this industry. We wish the best of luck to Richard and Jackie and the whole Hearth and Home team.
