Building upon the momentum of last year’s inaugural in-person ASID Texas Chapter Conference, Celebrating Design Texas: Education, Expo & Awards, this year’s event attracted 350+ design professionals, students, and industry members from across the state. The two-day event – abbreviated as CDT – took place Thursday, August 11 & Friday, August 12, 2022 on the Dallas Market Center campus in the Trade Mart.
CDT22 participants took advantage of…
- 14 hours of HSW, IDCEC-approved CEUs.
- Three DMC campus tours for Students/Emerging Designers personally led by Michael Bauer, DMC VP of Home & Design.
- An intimate expo comprised of 31 diverse vendors.
- An Expo Bingo game connecting designers and vendors. Congratulations to designer Aisha Z. Lewis-Martin, Allied ASID of Functional Conceptz in McKinney, who won a $100 Visa gift card!
- Complimentary lunches and light bites within our generous Sponsors’ beautiful showrooms (see list below). Many thanks to Colleen Visage, Vice President Product Management for Progress Lighting, for organizing this much appreciated aspect of the conference.
- A networking-focused Happy Hour hosted by Minka Group Vice President Will Cox and his fantastic team in their expansive showroom, which included lots of great lighting giveaways, as well as a $200 spa gift card. Congratulations to Kristi Kennimer with Scarlet Reagan Art & Home for winning our Designer Bingo networking game!
- And, last but certainly not least, the culmination of the conference: A festive Palm Beach-themed Awards Event staged alongside the beautiful koi pond located in the Trade Mart’s Grand Pavilion where we honored our talented and dedicated members.
