My Favorite Professional Conference

Here we go 4th DBC!

Here we go 4th DBC!

With over 30 years of being a professional interior designer, I have attended tons of professional conferences all over the country. And by far, the best conference in professional return and personal rewards is the Interior Designer Blogger Conference by Design Sherpa with Adam Japko, our mighty head of it all.

This was the 4th year and I have been beyond blessed to have attended all 4 years and here are the reasons:

1. Rockstar speakers that wow us with their expertise and interior design portfolios of brilliance.

2. Trend on sponsors bringing the latest and greatest in the world of interior design.

3. Over the top networking allowing me to make the most remarkable connections ever.

4. Meeting the most awesome interior designers and social media experts, many of whom I now count as very special friends in my life.

5. And, this conference is just FUN FUN FUN!

So here is glimpse into my experience. Many, many were not photographed of course. And I really missed my first DBC conference friend, Lynne Bier Barton and others who could not attend.
