The Design industry is constantly evolving and so are opportunities for us to connect with other designers, influencers, design social media practitioners, leading design brands, and interior design industry leaders. As my own business has changed, it has been critical to my success to stay involved, learn and network. There is one Conference that has remained a leader in educating and connecting the design community and that is the Design Influencers Conference being held February 24-26, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.
More than just a line-up of well-known speakers at the podium, it provides a unique opportunity to attend a Conference that “focuses on topics for designers and influencers using social media marketing and digital content and platforms to build their businesses and personal brands. Whether new to social media or an established influencer, the content in this track equips design professionals with tips and tools to build their presence both on and offline.”
I have attended for many years and the Design Influencers Conference has truly been an integral part of growing my business. The partnerships, collaborations, and lifelong friendships have been invaluable to my success as an Influencer, Blogger & Designer. And every year improves on the last with even more opportunities to learn from Design & Social Media innovators that have “paved the way.” You can find out more about the stellar line-up of speakers here.
The Conference also gives you an incredible opportunity to interact and network with some of the largest brands in the business, in fact, five of the biggest brand partnerships of my career happened as a result of the connections I made at the Design Influencers Conference. This year the Design Influencers Conference will continue to provide an opportunity to network with some of the largest brands in the design industry such as:
Aidan Gray showcases a love for interiors, design and authentic products that exude “European Grandeur.” This embodies the company’s desire for products made by hand and with authentic materials such as solid wood, rustic metals, antique mirror, old painted finishes, and silk. The European elegance that is the foundation of Aidan Gray requires sophisticated proportions while trying to maintain that “perfect balance” of usefulness and adaptation for today’s home.
