ASFD says last chance to buy tickets for this year’s Pinnacle Awards

HIGH POINT — Tickets are nearly sold out for the newly elevated Pinnacle Awards Gala on Monday evening, Oct. 16, and the American Society of Furniture Designers is urging marketgoers to act quickly to secure their seats.

“The Pinnacle Awards Banquet, which celebrates product design and designers is always a popular event at market,” said John Conrad, executive director. “We are expecting a sell-out crowd in the IHFC Green Wing ballroom.”

North Carolina up-and-coming singer/songwriter Anne-Claire is lined up as entertainment for the evening. “We are very excited to have her unique, exciting and very sophisticated sound set the stage for our roster of Pinnacle presenters, all of whom are industry leaders, influencers and stars in their fields,” Conrad said. “There is no question that this night will be our industry’s version of the Academy Awards.”

This year’s list of presenters includes Master of Ceremonies Bill McLoughlin, Furniture/Today editor in chief; Libby Langdon, Libby Interiors; Jaye Anna Mize, Fashion Snoops; Jeff Selik, Hillside Furniture; Lael Thompson, Broyhill Home Collections; and Bob Maricich, International Market Centers; with merchant Andy Thornton, founder of LaDiff delivering the keynote address, “Design and Happiness.”
