What makes Design Connections different from other events?
Design Connections will assemble all key players, including major design and architecture firms, leading independent designers, solution providers and industry experts so that attendees may formalize relationships across all elements of the supply chain in new and exciting ways to further advance commercial design in critical market segments. Rather than just another trade show or exhibition, we are focused on building lasting relationships so all members in these complex ecosystems can better understand and advance their needs.

How is the agenda structured?
Our agenda is more business-intensive than any other event focusing on commercial interior design. Every day is packed with private and group meetings, presentations, content sessions and networking. There is no wasted time and attendees walk away with solutions and strategies they can act on immediately.

This high-end program builds in scheduled 1:1 time for face-to-face interaction between attendees, supplier representatives and industry experts. No other event delivers this level of quality meeting time among current and future business partners, while also providing the highest level of educational sessions and access to a variety of onsite resources.

“I’ve been to a lot of different functions that were similar to this, but one of the things that really stood out about this experience was the opportunity to share insights, and learn from and suggest ways of working with suppliers, which is something we don’t typically get the opportunity to do. Oftentimes we’re working with end users, which is extremely useful, but the opportunity to really sort of participate in the process of thinking about what’s available and how we can help direct what could be available in the future was really a fantastic experience.”

-John Noble, Project Architect, SHP Leading Design

“The format for the Design Connections Healthcare event (my first one) was such a hybrid for me, having gone to so many awful trade shows and conference over the  years.   I have been telling so many colleagues and friends about my wonderful  experience at Design Connections.  The fact that the sponsoring companies and attending designers are able to partake in so many activities together helps build a solid community with the feeling that you are a part of something larger than yourself.  Such expertise, authority, and passion from all participants."

-Donald Strum, Principal – Product Design, Michael Graves Architecture & Design

“I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to the 2016 education conference for Design Connections and I’m overwhelmed with the level of speakers that have been presenting the last two days. I get to go to a number of conferences and I feel that this is probably the best. I’ve been to the healthcare conference as well and again, the quality of speakers, the environment we’re in--we get treated very well. So it’s a great experience overall. I’d highly recommend it and I’m glad to be here.”

-Luanne Perry, Vice President of Design, Group 7 Design
