Education, Networking, and Opportunities for All

At ICFF in June 2016, ASID presented the inaugural ELEVATE - The Education Forum Presented by ASID six educational sessions to more than 150 attendees. Session topics ranged from best business practices to the impact of design on the human experience and provided designers and architects with inspiration and knowledge to put into practice immediately.

ASID was pleased to host thought leaders from the interior design industry who shared their expertise and insight throughout the event. See the complete list of speakers and sessions.

ASID also hosted students and recent graduates from around the country at ACTIVATE - The Student Experience Presented by ASID. The Student Roadmap showed attendees how to navigate a trade show through a curated tour of ASID National Industry Partner booths guided by professional designers. Students then took part in the ASID Career Exchange, building their network and receiving one-on-one feedback on their resume and portfolio from ASID professional members, educators, and design firms.
