2011 ICON Honors Set With Sandow as Media Partner
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, December 9, 2010
Atlanta - The ICON Honors, the awards program for the home and gift industry launched this past summer by AmericasMart Atlanta and the Gift & Home Trade Association, is returning next year with a new media partner: Sandow Media, parent of Home Textiles Today.
The event, which recognizes superior achievement, contribution and innovation in a variety of industry business classifications, is scheduled for July 14, 2011 during the summer market at AmericasMart here. Last year's inaugural event attracted more than 1,000 attendees.
The new member of the sponsorship triumvirate next year will be the Sandow Media group of home furnishings retail publications, also including Gifts & Decorative Accessories, Home Accents Today, Furniture Today and Casual Living.
"ICON Honors emerges as both a dream realized and the promise of a resurging, renewing vision for 2011 and beyond," said Jeff Portman, AmericasMart president, "now made stronger through the Sandow Media partnership."
Details and deadlines for the 2011 event will be announced after the first of the year.
