"My first BoD Conference was like divine intervention. Seven years and 15 new employees later, I'm still attending!" (Debbie Baxter, Baxter Design Group.)
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 5, 2011
Held in the Grand Ballroom of the historic Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, the 2011 BoD Conference http://www.bodconference.com is bringing together best-selling business authors and faculty members of the nation's most prestigious business schools, all with a message tailored just for interior design professionals. As long-time conference attendee, Doug Greiwe, observed about the unique combination of educational content and inspiration, "This is the one event that I cannot afford to miss both as a designer and a business owner."
The BoD Conference also features founder David Shepherd and his annual state of the industry address, technical "skillsets" to ensure attendees understand the latest design technology, and inspirational "vignettes" from designers themselves. In fact, the sharing of best practices while on site is a core value of the BoD Conference.
And for the first time, the BoD Conference is working with other industry experts to help promote their events, enabling individual attendees to tailor a particularly valuable agenda. Popular add-ons include Steve Nobel's Luxury Experience Option (LEO) for ultra high-end designers, and Vita Vygovska's SHIFT workshop for sole practitioners and small firm managers. Information on both of these events is available at http://www.bodconference.com.
"With the Recession now in the rear view mirror, we have truly raised the bar for the nation's interior designers," said BoD Conference founder David Shepherd. "In addition the the most renowned roster of speakers we've ever had we also have great partnerships with companies like Cosentino/Silestone that is offering a contest and giving away free trips to Spain, Kravet who is offering free tours of their fabulous design studio to lucky winners, and Design Sherpa, who is an important media partner. All in all, this is shaping to be a blowout event!"
The Business of Design Conference has limited seating and sold out months in advance last year. The lowest pricing is offered to the earliest registrants.
