Interior Design Camp to be held in conjunction with summer market
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, January 30, 2014
The camp will be hosted by celebrity interior designers Kelli Ellis and Lori Dennis.
Interior Design Camp, held July 29-31 at World Market Center, will feature guest segments led by national industry experts in niche fields, along with networking events for attendees to mingle with industry friends and leaders. The programs will be designed to help designers at every level successfully brand, market, position and promote their interior design business through all channels, including online, magazines, television and through social media networks.
The roster of speakers confirmed are Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason of Aphro Chic, Sheliah Mac Sporran of Olioboard, Patrick Dragonette of Dragonette on La Cienega, editor and best-selling author Susanna Salk, Adam Japko, founder of the Design Bloggers Convention, plus more than a dozen other experts in the field of design, retail, media and marketing.
"In contrast to its first year, where the event was located in four cities around the country, Interior Design Camp will be held one-time only during Las Vegas Market. Being able to shop market, in combination with the educational components, will add an entirely new dimension to Design Camp. The event will offer hands-on experiences with the best brands in the business, and will start with exclusive tour of market on opening day," said Dennis. "I've been going to Las Vegas Market for years and love how easy it is to shop and the fact that there's now even more vendors to visit. We are thrilled to be partnering with the premier design market in the west coast."
"Las Vegas Market is where Lori and I met speaking on the Influential Women In Design Panel hosted by WithIt. It's a natural fit to host our annual event in such a meaningful place," said Ellis. "Interior Design Camp goes far beyond covering basic interior design skill sets, rather we will reveal how to thrive and excel in today's economy. Simultaneously, attendees will learn about the latest and greatest from the most relevant professionals in the industry, feeling inspired to bring your craft to a new level."
Sponsors for the event include Barbara Cosgrove, Cyan Designs, Four Hands, HGTV Home Furniture Collection, Jaipur, Lamps Plus, Left Bank Art, Made Goods, Olioboard, Palecek, Wayfair, Worlds Away and Zuo Modern.
