Furniture World News on

Western Home Furnishings Association and the National Home Furnishings Association announced the opportunity to participate in the second annual Home Furnishings Industry Conference scheduled for May 6-8, 2012 at the Westin Mission Hills in Palm Springs, Calif. Following on the success of the inaugural 2011 Home Furnishings Industry Conference, this year's event promises to bring even more education, networking, expo time and a brand new product showcase.

With a theme of California Dreamin' ~ Gaining the Edge, the 2012 Home Furnishings Industry Conference will show attendees how to gain a competitive edge in today's marketplace while following their dreams to build a better future for their business and the industry. Education will be created to meet the needs of all attendees; retailers, manufacturers and services providers.

To launch the 2012 HFIC campaign, WHFA is letting attendees vote on their favorite logo through the Home Furnishings Industry Conference Facebook page. To submit a vote, visit http://tinyurl.com/hficlogo, scroll through the four logo designs, and leave the letter of your favorite logo in the comments section. The logo with the most votes will become the official 2012 Home Furnishings Industry Conference logo. "The industry is really starting to embrace technology, which will play a big part at this year's conference. We have a brand new Social Media Strategy, are developing an HFIC app, putting together a more robust microsite and offering "you-tell-us" education where attendees can vote on sessions they want repeated on day two of the conference. What better way to launch the 2012 HFIC then with a fun interactive contest," said WHFA Events Director, Cindi Williams.

Voting for the 2012 HFIC logo is open until September 14. If you are interested in participating as a sponsor or partner of this event, contact Cindi Williams, WHFA, at cwilliams@whfa.org or (916) 960-0277.
