ART, the creative home furnishings network, will hold its annual conference April 2–5, 2020, at the Marriott Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa in Fort Meyers, Fla.
The 2020 program will feature programming that includes seminars, hands-on workshops, social events, and on Saturday, April 4, there will be a one-day pop-up interior design-focused program, Accent on Design, with Home Accents Today and Designers Today alongside other ART programming. Steelyard will be involved in the conference planning process as a joint collaborator. ART is also planning a community service project in the Fort Myers area during the conference.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to collaborate with this year’s team of partners,” says Sharon Davis, Executive Director of ART. “Including the retail and interior design prospective is so vital to understanding and building productive relationships among our members and the industry.”
From 2020 ART Conference Co-Chairs:
“Conference is one of the most exciting events of the year,” says Molly Mays, 2020 ART Conference Co-Chair. “We can discuss and collaborate with our peers outside of a typical market. Having this time to learn from each other is invaluable to our businesses. I always leave conference feeling excited and empowered. We are all about learning, service, and having some fun along the way.”
“Going to ART Conference is my favorite work trip of the year,” says Santhi Yarlagadda, 2020 ART Conference Co-Chair. “There’s nothing like being able to cross product category lines and really dig into the weeds about issues that plague our industry. We all have the same roadblocks, and brainstorming solutions so we can all move forward together is imperative and inspiring. The connections made at Conference and the conversations that take place every year help me grow our business creatively and efficiently. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are planning for this year’s Conference.”
Program sponsorships are open for reservations now. The full program and registration for attendance details will be available in January 2020.
