Las Vegas Market Keynote Presentation: "How to Create a Sustainable Future in Design" by Christopher Ramey


Please join us for an ASID California Central / Nevada and Las Vegas Design Center Sponsored Speaker at Las Vegas Market!
Keynote by Christopher P. Ramey:
‘How to Create a Sustainable Future in Design’
Futureproofing your firm has never been more challenging.  How will you survive an industry in turmoil?  By all accounts, fewer clients respect your expertise, traditional marketing is increasingly impotent, online platforms are competing and selling around you, clients are progressively more difficult to please and parsimonious, and your best prospects are barraged by online furniture and catalogue companies posing as design resources.  ‘Business as usual’ is gone when you can’t tell friend from foe.  It’s time to create a sustainable future.  
FREE for Las Vegas Market Attendees
(No CEUs are available for this session)
on Sunday, July 29th at 2:00 pm in Building A’s New Kitchen and Bath Showroom. A 110
Please join us right after the presentation, for the ANDYZ Awards Celebration in honor of the esteemed 2018 ANDYZ Awards winners!
