2014 Central Conference


The Central District re-imagined the definition of our immersive conference with Unfolding Design.

As a special pre-conference experience, we took attendees to the BIG 3 Furniture studios! Herman Miller, Haworth and Steelcase opened up their innovation spaces for our conference registrants. Their design leadership shared insights right in their innovation spaces!

The learning continued with explorations of the unique culture cropping up in metro cities—collaborative spaces for all the creative people to come together and build new solutions for the market. We visited Start-Garden, Grid70 and the Factory, and ended up at GR Brewery for a few post-conference drinks.

We handpicked a group of fantastic speakers and thought leaders, who will enlighten and inspire as they share their design stories from across multiple industries. Attendees were also treated to our Student Merit Award finalist presentations, a Portfolio Review and engaging artisan panel discussions.
