This economic program draws the film, television, and design-related industries to Atlanta by offering substantial tax incentives.
The event will be held in a 90,000 square foot collaborative design pavilion featuring creative film and television show-themed vignettes. AVI’s Marvin window and door products will be part of a set design that re-imagines the Beverly Hillbillies’ mansion in up-to-the-minute modern style. On exhibit will be a Marvin Clad Inswing French door, and Marvin Clad Ultimate Casement, Polygon and Trapezoid windows.
“We’re excited to be a part of this showcase of Atlanta’s most creative talent,” said Peter Morrison, President of AVI. “Marvin windows and doors are appreciated for their innovation and design flexibility. They’ll be in good company at this unique event.”
