Are you obsessed with interior design? Do you dream about growing your brand? Then pack your bags, because it’s time for camp — Design Camp, that is. Design Camp is a three-day-long meeting of the minds for interior designers, architects, bloggers, artists and trendsetters. The brainchild of celebrity interior designers Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis, this event in Las Vegas is for designers at every level.

Design Camp 2014

Camp begins Tuesday, July 29, with a tour of world class showrooms, meeting and mingling with your fellow campers at a cocktail mixer — as well as meeting your hosts, sponsors and speakers. Bright and early on Wednesday morning, your educational journey will begin with learning to build fundamentals of today’s design processes, tools and trends. Wednesday caps with another cocktail gathering to cement your new relationships with the design elite. Thursday’s schedule forges ahead with the building of design relationships and how to acquire and monetize an envied social presence. The day progresses with invaluable topics about managing and marketing your projects and your brand. Each day of Design Camp provides you with the opportunity to learn and network with the most respected professionals in the interior design business.

    Design Camp is brilliant! How to acquire and monetize an envied social presence certainly caught my attention as well as marketing and managing projects and my brand. As a design graduate who is building my career and embarking into hospitality design, I would welcome the opportunity to evolve and feed my interior design obsession with Design Camp!!

    Hi, I recently got my business license for my company Domus Moderno. My goal has always been to be a business owner. I have my BS in Interior Design and I have my MBA Marketing. All this to say, I would love to be a participant of the Interior Design Camp! I am interested most in; Henry Lien – Design And Law Come together, Kimberley Seldon – Business of Design, and Ramsin Khachi – Designing your business for success! Thank you, for the opportunity to enter the contest!!

    This program looks amazing!! All the events in the agenda look incredible but the event "Design and Law Come together" looks really interesting to me! I am curious about how these two seemingly unrelated things can come together. As a college student, I am interested in studying visual art and the humanities, so this event stood out to me particularly :)

    I would love to see all the amazing showrooms, a chance of a lifetime. Learning about managing and marketing projects and your brand, would be invaluable!

  5. Kristi Bennett says:

    What a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in design. I most look forward to cultural design and designing a fabric line. As a painter of canvas floorcloths I can see this being most beneficial.

  6. Yesenia Herrera says:

    I am looking forward to Business of Design by Kimberly Seldon and well the whole agenda looks great! I would be blessed to have this opportunity, I am currently changing my major to Interior Design and would love to learn more about the industry.
