Get a Sneak Peek into the Newest and Most Innovative Casual Furniture & Accessories

September for us, here at Eberly & Collard Public Relations, signifies one very important market week- The International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market (ICFA) in Chicago, IL. Held from September 21-24, Casual Market offers the most complete range of collections in new furniture, accessories and trends for outdoor living. It makes sense then, why Casual Market is the only show endorsed by the International Casual Furnishings Association.

Our ECPR team is working closely with MMPI, the show’s well-equipped production company, to cover select products and innovative trends, as introduced or launched by some of the showroom owners and exhibitors who will participate. We will be writing pre-show “Sneak Peeks” and publishing them on our blog for attendees and members of the media. Many of our media contacts have requested this resource, as is our norm, so we are looking forward to reporting helpful information about our clients and many others in the industry. We hope everyone enjoys the posts!

Keep checking our blog for an ongoing series of product “Sneak Peeks” and for information released from MMPI about the market event leading up to September 21. Also, follow us on Twitter during the market, as we’ll be tweeting about products and trends from the Casual Market. Here are our social media channels:

· Blog:
· Facebook Fanpage:
· Twitter:
· Flickr photo pages:

So, think of our social media channels as a means to learn about 2010’s advanced and new products for the home and outdoor furniture and accessories industries. Members of the media whom may not yet have tapped into this resource, contact us if you would like to receive special articles, product profiles, photos, etc. directly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Chicago!

  1. ECPR staff, let's talk at Casual Market about a piece (linked with 750 words) regarding a few top product picks with photos for the magazine's Oct. or Nov. newsletter. We are doing a new section called, "Design Destination."


  2. You bet, Annie. We've got it covered for you. I'll touch base via email or phone to set a time for coffee or lunch with you again.

    Looking forward to discussing the article and seeing you next week in Chicago.

    Thanks for thinking of us,
