The American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD) partnered with the Las Vegas Market to announce the 52 finalists for the 2013 Pinnacle Awards, the design awards that recognize designers of furniture and accessories.
"It was a distinguished honor for IMC to be the first to reveal these outstanding designer talents to our industry and the public," President and CEO of International Market Centers (IMC) Bob Maricich says. "Since many of the designers are represented at World Market Center, we have an opportunity to extend congratulations personally."
Pinnacle finalists will receive a special recognition card for product display in both Las Vegas and High Point Market showrooms. Finalists will be recognized and winners announced at the Pinnacle Awards banquet held on Monday evening, Oct. 21, during the High Point Market.
