Celebrating Design Texas: Education, Expo & Awards
The 2023 Event
We hope you didn’t miss the 2023 edition of our annual chapter conference, Celebrating Design Texas: Education, Expo & Awards, which took place August 2-4, 2023! Though we were back on the campus of Chapter Diamond Sponsor Dallas Market Center, we moved the Education & Expo portion from the Trade Mart over to the World Trade Center and the Interior Home + Design Center, the new home of the ASID Texas Chapter office.
Besides the new location, we had several new additions for 2023: an Opening Night Party, four 30-minute Pop-Up Talks on a variety of topics, and Student Programming. All these new components were on top of a 34-vendor showcase, 15 hours of IDCEC-approved CEUs, campus tours for Students/Emerging Designers, a Thursday evening Happy Hour, and a glamorous Friday evening Awards Gala in downtown Dallas.
Coming soon: A wrap-up article about the 2023 event.
Student Symposium is an annual event for Interior Design Students within the Texas Chapter and beyond. It exposes budding designers to the real world of interior design and brings Students together to interact and learn from established Professionals and Industry members.
This week-long event is filled with rich opportunities that expose students to the reality of this amazingly diverse profession. Students are able to interact one-on-one with professionals from all facets of design: education, healthcare, hospitality, institutional, multifamily, residential, retail and workplace.
Student Symposium 2023, which took place February 27-March 3, featured Real World Design Week, four days (Monday, Feb 27 - Thursday, Mar 2) of personalized mentoring through shadow experiences, all culminating in a fifth day (Friday, Mar 3) of group events taking place in our Design Communities. Organized by the ASID Texas Chapter, this phenomenal week-long event is exclusively for ASID Student Members.

Announcement About 2023 Design Community Design Competitions / Award Events
After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to pause the individual Design Community (DC) design competitions – and, thus, their respective Awards Events – for 2023 and only feature the Celebrating Design Texas Awards, the design competition open to the entire Texas Chapter.
We realize this decision may disappoint some of our Designer members. Please GO HERE to read a thorough explanation of the reasons behind this decision.
