WHITE PLAINS, NY, OCTOBER 29, 2013
Planning for the 26th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), the design industry’s spring classic, is now in full swing. Many exciting initiatives are on the horizon to keep the ICFF, scheduled for May 17-20, 2014, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, moving forward into its second 25 years. Chief among them is a just-announced partnership with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID): ASID at the ICFF. ASID will present Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC)/Continuing Education Unit (CEU)-approved programming, an array of educational sessions, during the ICFF’s run. The alliance bolsters the ICFF’s longtime commitment to continuing education.
Founded in 1975, ASID is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers. Its rich history dates back to the founding of its predecessor organizations, the American Institute of Interior Designers (AID) and the National Society of Interior Designers (NSID). With more than 28,000 members – including designers, industry representatives, educators, and students – the Society’s 15,500 practicing interior designers work in all areas of commercial and residential design. Professional members of the Society must pass rigorous acceptance standards, including a combination of accredited design education and/or full-time work experience and passage of a two-day accreditation examination administered by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ). The Society's membership also includes more than 6,500 students of interior design. ASID has more than 280 student chapters at colleges, universities, and design schools with two-year and four-year programs throughout the U.S. as well as several virtual chapters through online institutions.
The ICFF is produced and managed by Emerald Expositions.
