Preview for Casual Market Held

The Merchandise Mart in Chicago reported a strong preview show for the International Casual Furniture and Accessories Show.

The Mart held the annual preview last week and said attendance was up 22 percent over the last year.

An invitation-only event, the show is held for permanent outdoor showroom tenants on floors 15 and 16 and select exhibitors on floor 7 who are also members of the ICFA

This preview show gave attendees a sneak peek at the new products that will be available at the International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market Sept. 16-19 at the Merchandise Mart.

"We are very encouraged by the strong turnout at this year’s ICFA Preview Market and expect that the momentum will carry over to the September Casual Market,” said Susan McCullough, senior vice president of MMPI. “We believe this is an indicator of the continued growth and importance of the outdoor furniture segment. We look forward to our September show, which will feature many long-time exhibitors returning to the show as well as over 30 new companies who have already signed up to participate.”
