ICFF Miami Update!
Despite a Hurricane, Attendees Turned Out in Force to Experience the First Annual ICFF Miami®
-Over 4,000 Pre-Registrants and 1,600 Attendees Welcomed Luxury Global Design in Miami Beach October 5th 2016
North America’s largest and most prestigious series of design events for interiors, is proud to announce that its exhibitors, partners and staff are safe after its first annual ICFF Miami® saw a successful turnout of over 1,600 attendees, with over 4,000 pre-registered attendees on October 5 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback, ICFF is delighted to announce it will return to Miami October 3-4, 2017.
ICFF’s Miami debut coincided with the effects of Hurricane Matthew in Southeast Florida on October 6. The show management team fully cooperated with the Miami Beach authorities and first responders. In an effort to ensure the safety of everyone involved, ICFF Miami operated on a normal schedule on October 5, but did not re-open for day two on October 6.
“Most importantly, we’re relieved that our exhibitors, partners, staff and guests are safe,” said Kevin O’Keefe, ICFF event director. “I couldn’t be more proud of our team’s efforts in Miami. We exceeded our goal with over 4,000 pre-registered attendees and saw a busy show floor on opening day. I look forward to continuing on this success next year when we kick off ICFF Miami 2017.”
