HIGH POINT, NC (March 15, 2013) – Agio International Co. Ltd. will return to High Point for the Spring 2013 Furniture Market with an expanded presence and more collections displayed, company officials announced this month.
Last year marked the first time Agio exhibited at High Point and based on the overwhelming response from the 2012 Spring and Fall shows, Agio announced plans to expand its display space and increase the number of collections to be shown in the Showplace building.
Company officials confirmed that exhibit space will increase from 3,000 sq. ft. to almost 5,000 sq. ft. for the Spring Market, more than doubled the showroom size from its 2012 debut. The more prominent showroom space will accommodate several more collections on display, allow greater design possibilities and enable better visitor flow.
“The larger space not only gives us better exposure, it allows us to bring in 10 important collections that were not on display last October,” said Andy Sokol, AgioUSA’s vice president, Sales/Furniture Stores.
Sokol also confirmed that Agio will again sponsor its “Sunset on 3” cocktail parties. Agio will continue to sponsor breakfasts for buyers and guests to enjoy in the Showplace’s lobby during the week.The manufacturer’s primary US showroom will remain in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart and Agio will maintain its presence in both annual shows geared specifically for the outdoor category, the Casual Show Pre-Market in July and the Casual Outdoor Market each September.
