The Industry Partner Award was created six years ago to recognize an ICFA Solution Partner member. The award celebrates a trade supplier who as a board, council or committee member has contributed to the outdoor furnishings industry’s success through their decisions, actions or cooperation with ICFA.

“The dedication and investment in Casual Market Atlanta and ICFA by ANDMORE continues to be transformational,” said Jackie Hirschhaut, ICFA Executive Director. “Together, working as one team, we will unlock the full potential of growth of the outdoor furnishings category and place our members on the best path for success.” In 2024, ICFA is hosting its second year of trade shows at AmericasMart, including Summer Casual Market Atlanta on July 15-18 and Fall Casual Market Atlanta on September 16-18.

“ICFA’s recognition of ANDMORE with the Industry Partner Award for the second consecutive year is a remarkable honor, and a tangible representation of our shared commitment to mutual success,” said Bob Maricich, ANDMORE CEO. “Looking ahead, we remain steadfast in our dedication to serving casual industry needs, leveraging this partnership to continue driving positive change both now and in the future.”
