ICFA and theMART Merge Casual Market Chicago Into a Single Event

Change casual Market Chicago 2022

The International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA) and theMART will merge their two currently scheduled trade fairs this year – the ICFA preview event in mid-summer and the Casual Market in mid-September – into one larger Casual Market Chicago scheduled for July 19-22.

The move is a result of concerns about addressing supply chain issues in the sector and the desire of manufacturers and retailers to place orders on time. They are concerned about the lack of fabric, long lead times, and clogged-up ports. Most exhibitors have delivery times ranging from 20 weeks to one year or longer.

Wes Stewart, CEO of Sunset West, pointed out that this is an industry-wide, global challenge that everyone is in together. “Today we are all faced with extended lead times wherever we look, whether it be in the automotive sector, appliance industry or the furniture industry, we call on the patience within us to get through,” he says. “I look forward to the day when all supply chains are running properly again.”
