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.
