The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) has announced an all-new format for its 2017 annual conference. Inside Knowledge: The BIID Business Success Conference has been developed to deliver real and actionable guidance as well as strategic insights and practical ideas that interior designers can apply to their business. Taking place on Thursday 8th June, this year’s event will be hosted at 30 Euston Square, London.
The UK’s only conference developed specifically for and by interior designers, this year the BIID will use its annual industry conference to focus on business success to help attendees build a thriving interior design business.
“The BIID is delighted to announce Inside Knowledge, the only conference in the UK that explores and examines the key issues facing interior designers,” comments Susie Rumbold, President of the BIID. “The design industry has never been stronger in the UK and the coming year presents a wealth of opportunities for designers to establish and develop successful design practices. This year’s conference will deliver practical and actionable advice for interior designers and will be an unmissable event. We expect the day to be hugely engaging, enlightening and inspiring for all interior designers.”
The BIID conference will be a full day of informative talks and interactive sessions led by industry experts, including a keynote speech from a well-known entrepreneur and a further eight specially developed sessions, designed to support interior designers on developing a successful interior design practice. With talks on future trends, how to build your interior design brand, debates on ethics and real life case studies, the conference is suitable for interior designers setting up a new practice, as well as those already running an existing business who are looking for new and innovative ideas.
Last years’ conference brought together over 250 attendees from across the design spectrum, including BIID members, design professionals, academics, design students and media. Complete with an inspirational talk from the charismatic Karim Rashid and an insightful session with the celebrated designer Orla Kiely, it was a day to remember.
The full programme for Inside Knowledge will be announced soon.
