The most anticipated and important night in the home and gift industry advances to a transformative new staging and aesthetic when ICON HONORS 2018 fills the spectacular AmericasMart® Building 3 atrium with its annual celebration of those recognized for supreme achievement across a wide spectrum of accomplishments.
Highlighting the new ICON HONORS staging and introduction of the 2018 Honorees will be an industry-exclusive address by Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post and founder and Chief Executive Officer of Thrive Global. Huffington’s presentation will imprint a new mark of contemporary cultural thought leadership upon ICON HONORS, which from its founding has championed the role of independent business in the global economy.
For the first time ever, ICON HONORS will be open and accessible to all July Market attendees by virtue of its new staging, and will be showcased and broadcast like never before as the centerpiece of AmericasMart LIVE, which delivers an eclectic mix of thought-leader presentations and original broadcast content, capped by Huffington’s address. ICON HONORS 2018 is Thursday, July 12, 2018. It is produced by AmericasMart in partnership with the Gift & Home Trade Association (GHTA) and Progressive Business Media, and in association with the industry foundation Gift For Life.
