Imagine three solid days to tour hundreds of world-class showrooms, attend endless parties (47 on Saturday alone!) and participate in priceless networking and educational programming: a designer’s dream! All of this and more is what’s happening at High Point Spring Market this weekend.
ASID arrived on the scene bright and early this morning at the Designer’s Orientation with ASID leader Tim Schelfe who gave his insider’s tips and tricks for getting the most out of the world’s biggest design show. After a little coaching from Tim, we moved on to visit a few of the amazing showrooms of our Industry Partners. The prize for inspiration of the day goes to Fine Art Lamps, recipient of TEN Fine Arts Awards! And with more than 1,100 handcrafted, customizable lighting masterpieces, we understand why.
We then strolled down the street to peek in on the Taste of Design Camp with ASID member extraordinaire Lori Dennis. This engaging panel kicked off a nationwide series of workshops to teach interior designers the tips and tricks for building a brand, promoting their work and taking their businesses to the next level. Lori and her collaborator Kelli Ellis, brought together an incredible panel of “camp counselor” experts including Leslie Newsom, Helene Hollub, Katy Garrett, Lisa Mende, Ronda Carman and Bill Indursky. If today’s launch event was a hint of what’s to come, we’re excited to see what these two have in store for their upcoming workshops in a city near you!
And now the parties start! We’ll be mingling and mixing with our friends at CR Laine, Let us know where you’ll be. Give us a shout and tweet us to meet us! @ASID #ASIDHP
