Business of Design Winter Conference

From February 10th through February 12th the Best Practices Network (BPN), gathered together for the annual BPN Winter Conference. This year the conference was held at the beautiful Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center in lovely Scottsdale, Arizona. Over 75 attendees from the nation's top Interior Design firms gathered for meetings, presentations and one on one networking sessions under the guidance of interior design business leader David Shepherd, founder of the BPN. The BPN Winter Conference is the "members only" gathering of the BPN.


Together with the Business of Design Conference (BOD11), open to all interior designers and held annually in September in New York City, the BPN is the premier organization of interior designers dedicated to excellence in the business of design.

The Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center provided a beautiful oasis for our group to gather.  It also helped that the average daily temperature was between 65 and 75!  While there I also had the great opportunity to have dinner with the National President and President Elect of The American Society of Interior Designers, ASID, Michael Thomas, FASID and Lisa Henry, FASID.  Both are friends and colleagues of mine and who I serve with on the National Board of ASID.

If you ever have a chance to visit Phoenix or the Scottsdale area please check out the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center!
