ICFF New York 2016 is dedicated to being the global design platform for North America

For those who never been before on an ICFF show, during the event we have the chance to enjoy live talks and educational sessions. Do you recommend a session in particular?

It depends on your interest and our industry. If you’re an interior designer, I’d suggest Saturday morning’s “Design Trends: A Multi-Perspective View of the Year Ahead”; architects will enjoy “Design: The Architecture of Storytelling” starting at 3PMon Saturday. If you’re an industrial designer, I’d make sure not to miss the “Collective Innovation: Embracing Collaboration in (Home Furnishing) Design” at 1030AM on Sunday; and no matter what your design focus, the “Friends with Benefits: The Advantages of a Good Design Network” talk at 2 PM on Sunday will be of interest to everyone.

Also, for new exhibitors, can you give them some tips on how to move around the show? (venue rules, protocol, customs...)

The tips I would give new exhibitors is to look at the exhibitor kit in detail.

What are the main benefits of attending ICFF?

Each and every year, we are dedicated to evolving and growing ICFF and exploring new ways to present what’s best and what’s next. In 2015, ICFF expanded to two levels of New York’s Jacob K. Javits Center, represents a 30 percent increase in size and outpacing the double-digit expansion experienced in 2013 and 2014.

This year, the ICFF exhibition floor has grown by additional 30% over 2015, as the Fair welcomes some 150 new brands. With our expanded scope that includes more luxury kitchen and bath brands and designers, ICFF has come to stand for all that is important in contemporary and classic design. New pavilions, exhibitors, and features fill an additional 30,000 net square feet – covering more than half of the third level of the Javits Center.
