New venue announced for HFMSE, 2nd edition
July 11, 2017,
Exposition Development Company, Inc. (EDC) and Progressive Business Media (PBM) announced today the relocation of Home Furnishings Manufacturing Solutions Expo (HFMSE). The second edition will take place July 18-19, 2018 at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, S.C.
The decision to move the event, which had its first edition June 7-8, 2017 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta, was primarily due to a high demand from exhibitors and attendees alike requesting the expo be held within the Carolinas.
“We had great support from the industry’s leaders for the first edition of the event, but there is still a significant audience that we are not getting to the show. The industry continues to tell us that moving the show into the Carolinas will bring a larger draw of attendees, due to the proximity that Greenville provides to those located in South and North Carolina. After listening to the industry, we are making the decision to move the event to enable Home Furnishings Manufacturing Solutions Expo to grow to the size and scope we know it can be,” said Stephanie Everett, Partner & COO, Exposition Development Company, Inc.
