TRIO Receives 8 Gold and 21 Silver Awards at NAHB's The Nationals

CEO Angela Harris Named a National Sales & Marketing Council Associate of the Year

LAS VEGAS (Feb. 20, 2019) – TRIO, one of the fastest-growing design and visual merchandising firms in the nation, received eight Gold and 21 Silver Awards at The NationalsSM 2019, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)’s largest and most prestigious awards program. Presented by NAHB’s National Sales & Marketing Council (NSMC) at the International Builders Show (IBS) Feb. 19-21 in Las Vegas, The NationalsSM recognizes the best new-home sales and marketing in North America.

“TRIO’s market-driven approach to design and merchandising has led to phenomenal success for our builder and developer clients around the country,” said TRIO CEO Angela Harris, who was recognized with the inaugural NSMC Associate of the Year Gold award.

“Through our collaborative creative process, we deliver designs that are innovative, beautiful and laser-focused on connecting with each project’s target audience. We’re honored to be recognized by NAHB among the talented firms who continue to elevate our profession.”

In addition to Harris’ individual award, she spoke at two sessions during IBS, including Merchandising: Is it Really a Thing?, a fast-paced panel that explored how visual merchandising still has an important role in communicating a brand’s identity in the digital world, and Do This, Not That! Design Do’s & Don’ts for 2019, a spotlight session that took attendees through the design trends that will attract buyers this year.

This was TRIO’s most exciting year yet, and 2019 is shaping up to be even better!

In 2018, while our business grew exponentially, we shortened our name to TRIO and launched a new website. As part of the TRIO 3% Initiative we built a new school for Exceptional Education Outreach in the Bahamas. Angela launched her own furniture line for Phillips Collection, and tile designs for TileBar. TRIO opened the doors to its new flagship Design Studio in Downtown Denver. We announced the acquisition of Design Lines, which allows TRIO to offer more comprehensive services, resources and expertise, as well as greater national reach and deeper market insights. TRIO is also proud to have welcomed over 35 new teammates on board. We’re beyond excited to see what 2019 has in store!

A huge thank-you to our partners.

We love what we do here at TRIO and none of this would be possible without the opportunity to work, design, and co-create, with incredible industry partners, builders, and developers. We look forward to another year of creating memorable design together!
