What Inspires You?

Re-motivate at the Interior Design Summit, by Gail Doby, business transformation coach

The pace of being an interior designer – particularly an interior design firm owner – is spiraling out of control. If you’re like many of your peers, you’re struggling to stay motivated, inspired, and on top of the avalanche of information you see every day. What’s the solution? For me, learning new ideas, connecting with like-minded people, and traveling always work to refill my tank.

Going to High Point Market is one of those inspiring learning opportunities that I look forward to twice a year. We get to see our clients, sponsors, joint venture partners, PR team and many interior designers that we’ve never met before.

It’s fun.
It’s exhausting.
It’s exhilarating.
It’s Market Week!

It’s impossible to describe the experience to other people who haven’t attended, but it is one of the most important events you can attend as an interior designer. Yes, you may have showrooms locally, but there are more than 2,000 vendors at High Point Market, and they come together twice a year to present their latest introductions. You see the trends before they come to the local showrooms, so you are in the know.

If you’re focused on efficiency, you can get educated and collect your required CEUs during the same trip. To earn a full .5 CEU credits, make Friday, October 13, your first day at Fall Market, and attend our annual Interior Design Summit. Thanks to our generous sponsors, you can save 80% of the cost!

Luxe Interiors + Design and the High Point Market Authority have partnered with us to bring the best ideas and fun to Market October 13 - 16, 2017. Plus, Lexington Home Brands signed on early this year as the Title Sponsor of our 4-day Market experience.

We asked our best clients what they wanted to learn, and they said they wanted to hear about fees, best practices, trends, marketing and branding. That’s what we’re bringing to Market, so you can go back to your business with new strategies to help you get to the next level.

After our one-day Interior Design Summit, you’ll experience a curated selection of must-see showrooms. As you visit each exhibitor, you’ll get your GRAM|ME map stamped so you can potentially win an amazing prize like a 12-month Luxe Preferred marketing package valued at $25,000, or a VIP Intensive (business transformation) + Design Success Alliance (mastermind) membership valued at $17,500.

And, when you post photos of your showroom finds and event highlights to Instagram, you’ll be eligible for additional prizes, to be awarded at our closing cocktail party, in the beautiful French Heritage showroom, on Monday, October 16.

You’ll be educated, entertained and inspired, and just maybe you’ll go home with up to $25,000 of marketing assistance to elevate your brand.

Join us before the tickets are all gone!
