Apollo Awards mark 50 years
August 21, 2009,
The 50th Annual Apollo Awards program on Sept. 23 in Chicago will not only spotlight 50 years of Apollo Award winners but also 50 years of the International Casual Furnishings Association’s service to the casual furniture industry.
Apollo Award winners from each decade also will be spotlighted as a way of commemorating the rich history of the awards program. For 50 years, the Apollo has been conferred on the industry’s top retail companies, always recognizing excellence in the merchandising and sales of outdoor furniture and accessories.
This year’s celebration will once again include a tribute to the two recipients of the ICFA’s Lifetime Achievement Awards, as well as a runway fashion show featuring the latest outdoor fabrics.
Tickets to the historic awards dinner are available to ICFA members only for $48. The 50th annual event will be held in the Great Hall at Chicago’s Union Station during the International Casual Furniture and Accessories Market. Contact Rhonda Craven at email@example.com for more information or to purchase tickets.
