Design Connections Summit uses a proven event format that provides the right balance of educational content, with guaranteed business development activities built strategically into the agenda and program. Our summits are designed to help sponsors build relationships with designers, architects and purchasers who are currently looking for best-in-class solutions, leading to the generation of a qualified pipeline and putting your company in position to create deal flow with our invitation-only attending customers.

The Design Connections Value Proposition is Simple…

As a sponsor, you have guaranteed one-on-one time with qualified attendee decision makers. Our “1:1 Meeting/Case Study-Boardroom” approach creates results at a fraction of the cost compared to attending a large industry trade event or traditional conference.

  • Pre-scheduled 1:1 meetings with high-level attendees are the ideal way to drive sales and solidify partnerships. Sponsors schedule meetings beginning 3-4 weeks before the event through our online scheduling system, as well as on site.
  • Private Case Study Presentations with 8-10 attendees‍‍‍ in a boardroom setting; perfect for candid conversation and end user feedback.
  • Additional networking opportunities including: receptions, breakfasts and luncheons, golf, casino night and awards night where attending executives vote on the best vendor products and presentations.
  • Keynote presentations and panels: in-depth presentations and panels featuring vendor executives on solutions, product trends, policy and state of the industry.
  • Design Connections is an exclusive forum where buyers and sellers can come together, in an environment facilitated by experts to share their experiences, needs, products and services.
  • Design Connections is held in a world class venue with comfort, food and networking that is first class.

We offer multiple sponsorship levels and work closely with sponsors to make sure you receive the maximum ROI. This high-end program builds in scheduled 1:1 time and interaction between attendees and sponsor representatives. Design Connections is unique and stands alone in its ability to deliver this level of quality meeting time among current and future business partners.

Qualified Attendees

The attendees that come to our events are targeted. We recruit them and qualify them. We don’t use traditional event marketing practices that deliver unknown results in terms of types of attendees. We bring in high-level decision makers, not an abundance of unqualified attendees. All vetted executives receive a full participation package that includes travel, hotel accommodations, meals and registration costs. This ensures a cost-effective and quality peer-to-peer experience for attendees - and a 100% qualified audience for participating sponsors.

In consideration for their hosted package, all end user attendees are bound to sign an agreement that stipulates their full participation in meetings and events. When a sponsor comes to Design Connectionsthey don’t have to “hope” that they have meaningful meetings. Sponsors’ 1:1 and group boardroom meetings are pre-scheduled so they know exactly what they are getting and how to prepare.

“This is my first Design Connections and I have to say it’s exceeded all expectations. It’s actually been a dream come true.  I spent over ten years as the Director of INSTALL trying to network and interact with decision-makers unsuccessfully. I’ve gone to many, many trade shows and people walk by and you have a lot of conversations that don’t lead to any results.  In my opinion, to come here and call this a trade show is actually an injustice to this show. This is the most wonderful networking event that I’ve participated in. I find the potential to be through the roof and I can’t wait to go to the next one. So this has just exceeded all expectations and is a dream come true."

-John McGrath, Director, INSTALL

“This is our first time attending Design Connections and we were very pleasantly surprised. We’ve enjoyed our time here and got to make some really great c‍‍‍onnections. And we really enjoyed all of the case study presentations on how they’re utilizing different products and it was really educational for us. We actually came away learning more than what we expected to learn. The networking, meeting new people in the industry; it’s just been a wonderful time and we expect to be back.”

-Deanna Brickner, Marketing Manager, LEED Green Associate, Roppe Corporation
