Usually held in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the All American Furniture Expo is moving to a larger venue in York, Pennsylvania for its upcoming 2017 event.

The 2017 show will take place August 2-3 in the Utz Building at the York Expo Center.

“This move has been a long time coming,” said show manager Wanda Gregg. “In 2016 we had to turn manufacturers away due to lack of space, and buyers have been requesting more upholstered furniture. Holding our show at the York Expo Center gives us the space to benefit more manufacturers while also offering buyers the products they are looking for.”

The move will nearly double the amount of booth space and give more manufacturers the opportunity to exhibit. For buyers, Gregg said the move will expose them to more manufacturers of a wide variety of strictly American-made furniture.

She also said the new venue is surrounded by large parking lots, allowing buyers the opportunity to bring a truck and trailer to take their favorite furniture back to their stores.

“The increase in parking was a huge upside for us as we chose this new building,” said Gregg. “It makes booth setup much easier for manufacturers, and will encourage more buyers to attend the show.”

Previously, the expo has featured up to 90 American hardwood and upholstered furniture manufacturers. Find out more here.
