The Annual BIFMA Furniture Summit is your opportunity to get updates on all of the ANSI/BIFMA Standards in one place, at one time, and meet the many volunteers in your industry that make it all possible. Our standards, founded on centuries of craft and enhanced by ever-advancing science, embody the best of our knowledge on safety, ergonomics, and sustainability.

Standards development activities, legislation, and regulations are intricately linked. The Furniture Summit brings together BIFMA’s Engineering, Sustainability, and Government Affairs Committees to look at where we have been, what projects are underway, and what the future holds for our work.

Please join us in Grand Rapids, Michigan this September for an invaluable exercise in cross-committee collaboration, education on industry issues, and recognition of the people behind the process.
