ASID Releases Details on Interiors ‘05

Washington, DC, September 16--The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is pleased to announce that INTERIORS '05: The ASID Conference on Design will take place on March 17-20, 2005, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. This premier educational conference is open to all designers of the built environment. "INTERIORS '05 presents an opportunity for ASID to build upon the successes of the first year of this conference, which surpassed expectations in all areas: quality of programs and keynotes, networking and social events, and overall attendance," said ASID president Linda Elliott Smith, FASID. "At the end of INTERIORS '04, a 'buzz' began to hum in the design community about this unique learning event. We invite all designers to learn what this buzz is all about-to share their knowledge, gain new insight, and celebrate design and its influence on our lives." More than 70 experts will address significant design topics under six professional tracks-business of design, design practice, design specialties, sustainable design, universal design and a new student track-to an expected 1,000 designers, industry representatives and students from across the United States and Canada. All the courses, with the exception of the two-day STEP (NCIDQ examination preparatory) workshop, are CEU-accredited through IDCEC. Conference highlights also include keynotes by visionaries of the design world, the Society's annual awards gala, a 30th anniversary celebration, the ASID/Southern Accents Residential Awards Breakfast, educational tours exploring San Diego design and culture, and, for the first time, a series of pre-conference workshops open to both attendees and non-attendees of the conference. INTERIORS '05 is being sponsored by the Carpet and Rug Institute, EXPO Design Center, Lutron, Sherwin-Williams, Viking® Range Company, Vista Window Films and Water Wonders - all ASID Industry Partners. Additional sponsorship opportunities for the conference are still available.
