PBM_HomeFurnishingsMfrExpoGREENSBORO, N.C.—Progressive Business Media and Exposition Development Company Inc. (ExpoDevCo) have launched the official website for the inaugural Home Furnishings Manufacturing Solutions Expo set for June 7-8, 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

The recently launched HFMSE website is the number-one resource for exhibitors and attendees to find information about the expo, providing show details, schedules and exhibitor information.

“With the creation of a domestic event, more people both in terms of company size and within individual companies can attend than would be able to travel overseas,” said Stephanie Everett, COO and partner at ExpoDevCo. “We want to encourage broad participation so company stakeholders can actually see the various equipment, materials and solutions, and make fully informed decisions.”

In addition to a large number of exhibitors, there will also be demonstrations throughout the expo that will allow attendees to see equipment in action. Partnering with regulatory experts at the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) and the Franklin Institute, HFMSE will provide a unique educational component on critical compliance and regulatory issues.

“Part of the reason for creating this show is because people were asking for it,” said Kevin Castellani, Progressive Business Media. “We don’t have any events like this going on in the U.S. today. Many are looking forward to immersing themselves in a two-day commitment and having the opportunity to experience something they haven’t experienced before, with a team.”

HFMSE has also gathered an impressive roster for its advisory council.
