”We have seen a dramatic increase in new exhibitors due to our move to the East Coast as well as the size and caliber of exhibits.  You’ll see a lot of new products and faces in Charlotte next March as well as some big surprises”  according to McNamara, Show Producer.  This is a show where there’s something significant for every segment of the industry.  People are loving the East Coast location and the early Spring dates – both aspects promise a nice bump in attendance.

** AIM Communications, parent company of IWCE,  does not support the HB2 bill.  IWCE had booked the Charlotte venue well before this law was passed. We value our relationship with the interior design community as a whole and find HB 2 and related laws to be detrimental to the industry.  It is our hope that all members of the interior design community know where we stand with HB 2 and feel welcome to attend IWCE in Charlotte March 8-9, 2017. **
