ATLANTA — Against the backdrop of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons football team and Atlanta United soccer team, Carson Kressley will serve as emcee for the 2024 International Casual Furnishings Assn.’s annual awards gala at Summer Casual Market Atlanta.

Kressley debuted as the fashion expert on the original “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” reality television series in 2003. Later, he teamed with fellow interior designer Thom Filicia to host “Get a Room with Carson & Thom.”

The annual ICFA gala dinner event on July 16 is hosted by Andmore and helps support the organization’s philanthropic interest in the City of Hope. During the gala, leading outdoor manufacturers and retailers will be honored with a full slate of awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Apollo Awards recognizing retail excellence, the Manufacturer of the Year, the Sales Representative of the Year, the Unsung Hero Award for a superior manufacturers’ customer service representative, and the Dudley K. Flanders Future Leadership Award.

“ICFA is very excited to welcome interior design, television personality and fashion stylist Carson Kressley to emcee the evening program dedicated to celebrating the best in the casual furnishings industry,” said Jackie Hirschhaut, ICFA executive director.

“After introducing the casual furnishings industry to the amazing Georgia Aquarium last summer, we look forward to hosting Summer Market attendees at another Atlanta landmark,” said Paula Cox, Andmore marketing manager for outdoor furnishings at AmericasMart.

Trolleys from AmericasMart will be available to shuttle guests to and from the downtown location. A post-party on the field following the event will allow attendees the opportunity to celebrate with the honorees.

Tickets are available for ICFA members to order tables for 10 guests priced at $800 or individual seats, priced at $85 each. Non-members can secure tables at $1,100 or $110 each. A diverse range of sponsorships are additionally available.
