Upcoming Events

“I have a lot of appreciation for IHFRA because there’s a very unique bond that exists in our industry. I’m a retailer, but it’s important for me to be a part of this group because there’s a really important bond that happens between manufacturers, sales reps, and retailers.” – Lael Thompson

"Inclusion within the group has been able to provide us with a ton of new connections and great people to work with. We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know the partners of IHFRA; being able to work with them has been an awesome experience. I’ve had a great time through membership and I highly recommend this to everybody in the furniture business to join IHFRA today.” – Jake Freedman

"IHFRA to me is much more about the benefits but about the benefit of community and what we as a group of independent representatives have been able to accomplish and do together” “and how the benefits of membership of having a place to go to speak to people, to network, and to help protect our interest within the industry." – Harris Kirsch

"The biggest reason why I like to use it is I’m able to get through the front door with the pin here, and it pays for itself just with the printing alone, and the savings you get with the discounts. The hotels, rental cars – it’s just a good organization and I’m proud to be a part of it.” – Kirk Handley

"My first experience with Hotel Engine scared me because I was worried it was too good to be true. Almost 70% off. Great news, it was true! Not only did I get a great deal, but it also qualified for loyalty points. I have used Hotel Engine multiple times and have even used it for my market reservation. Recent bookings have not been at 70% off, but still have been good discounts. I used to think the Office Depot benefits would pay for my membership, now I think it is Hotel Engine." – Mike C.

The rates were close to $600 using any of my other discount possibilities but, through IHFRA, I was able to rent a car with Enterprise for <$300! I just more than paid for my annual dues. Incredible! Thank you, IHFRA!" – Stan T.
