The ballroom features floor-to-ceiling aquariums so attendees will feel surrounded by an underwater world. The food for this year's event will come from the highly celebrated Wolfgang Puck Catering company.

In addition, the new categories of Indoor/Outdoor and Licensee have been added. Awards are given in a number of handmade and power-loomed categories, segmented by price point, and visual displays.
