Celebrating Design Texas: Education, Expo & Awards

The 2023 Event

You don't want to miss what we have in store for 2023 Celebrating Design Texas: Education, Expo & Awards taking place August 2-4, 2023! Though we'll be back on the campus of Chapter Diamond Sponsor Dallas Market Center, we're moving the Education & Expo portion from the Trade Mart over to the Interior Home + Design Center, the new home of the ASID Texas Chapter office starting January 2023.

Plan on arriving on Wednesday, August 2 so you can enjoy the first of several new additions, our Opening Night Party. Over the subsequent two days, we'll also sprinkle into the schedule some 30-minute Pop-Up Talks, new Student Programming, and a Keynote Address.

All these new components are on top of a vendor showcase, 10+ hours of IDCEC-approved CEUs, campus tours for Students/Emerging Designers, a Thursday evening progressive showroom Happy Hour, and a glamorous Friday evening Awards Event.

So stay tuned for many more conference details, and be sure to enter the design competition during the submission window of May 1-31. Visit the Awards Page of the official CDT website to find more information.

The 2022 Event

Student Symposium

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.
