International Market Centers is partnering with the organizers of Interior Design Camp, a two-day seminar hosted by celebrity interior designers Kelli Ellis and Lori Dennis, for the next summer Las Vegas Market, July 27-31. Information and event registration about Interior Design Camp is now online at designcamp.com.
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 at the camp 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.
A number of leading brands in the home furnishings industry have joined the event as sponsors including 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.
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, founder of the Design Bloggers Convention Adam Japko, 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," Dennis said. "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 tours of market on opening day. 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," Ellis said. "It's a natural fit to host our annual event in such a meaningful place. 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."
