The American Society of Interior Designers Announces Education Partnership with ICFF

Published year: 

Washington, D.C. (April 17, 2014) | The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is collaborating with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) to bring exclusive education programming to North America’s premier showcase for contemporary design. ICFF is offering education developed and managed by ASID and approved by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC). Called ASID at the ICFF, this series provides an array of educational opportunities led by some of the industry’s leading authorities on design. Each individual session is approved for 0.1 CEU.

“We are excited to be the exclusive provider of core education programming at the ICFF,” said Randy Fiser, executive vice president and CEO of ASID. “Offering design professionals vital education opportunities is a key part of our mission. Partnering with the premier North American contemporary furniture event is paramount to our success. We look forward to building on this relationship for years to come.”

Sessions begin on May 17 and continue through May 20, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Led by a powerful group of panelists and presenters, each session will focus on topics important to residential and commercial design professionals. Designing for wellness in the workplace, reimagining a hospitality venue and a conversation with Contract magazine’s 2014 Designer of the Year, Krista Ninivaggi, are just a few of the programs running throughout the event.

To attend a session of ASID at the ICFF, participants must be registered to attend the ICFF. Advance trade registration is complimentary until May 13. After this date, all trade registration is $60. Click here to learn more about the conference programming. Register today for ASID at the ICFF.

About the American Society of Interior Designers
The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidenced-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded nearly 40 years ago when two organizations became one — an anniversary we will recognize in 2015 — but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are poised to lead the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big and of the places we live with the places we work, play and heal.
