Designers Today is headed to Americasmart and LVMKT in July with a roster of special events going on and I hope you can join in the educational fun. Not to mention, that our beautiful printed magazines will be distributed at both markets too.
First stop Atlanta. PBM is doing a series of conversational "Lets Have Lunch" seminars. My time slot is Friday the 13th at 11:30, and I am joined by my friend and colleague Amy Flurry, known for her Recipe for Press books and adored for her creativity, professionalism, smarts and grace. We are leading the discussion about the do's and don'ts associated with reaching out to media people and getting press and highlighting some different outlets. Good Stuff! Details here. From 3 - 5 Friday, Currey & Co. (14-F-10) will be hosting a Recipe for Press: Designers Edition book signing!
At the end of July, DT heads to Vegas. On opening day, I will be joined by my retailing friends Christopher Kennedy, Lori Paranjape, Susan Jamieson, and Bobbi Joe Engleby to discuss the wonderful and challenging world of brick and mortar retail and how it compliments their design businesses. We launched this panel in High Point, thanks to national media sponsor ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME Magazine, and we all agreed it was great content with much to takeaway and that it could have gone on for another two hours. The info you need is here.
On Tuesday 11:30 - 12:30, in the O.W. Lee Company showroom (Building C, 1301), Waynette Goodson, EIC of Exterior Design, and I will be chatting it up with designers Kerrie Kelly, Justina Blakeney, Rafi and Josh from FORM Design Studio, and Lori Paranjape and our focus is OUT and IN...creating beautiful spaces in nature and with nature. Lunch and inspiration served.
Hope you can make it to one or all 3. See you on the road!
