DWELL ON DESIGN IS BACK AND BIGGER THAN EVER
DWELL TURNS 300,000 SF OF THE LOS ANGELES CONVENTION CENTER INTO A 3-DAY DESIGN LABORATORY
Dwell on Design LA, now the largest design event in the U.S., returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 20-22, 2014. This unique 3-day event offers continuous content from over 200 top minds in design, dynamic exhibitions by more than 400 exhibitors, and unparalleled educational opportunities. With nearly 300,000 square feet to be transformed into worlds of inspiration and activity, from Dwell Outdoor to the Modern Family Pavilion to the Tech Zone, this year's 30,000+ attendees will find themselves immersed in new ideas for modern living.
Dwell is also thrilled to welcome the return of our industry partner, the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), who will host their National Leadership Conference at Dwell on Design. Thousands of designers from around the country are expected to attend again this year, and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be offered through onstage programming and in breakout rooms. Friday, June 20, is trade day and will cater to designers, architects, and construction professionals.
Dwell is pleased to announce American designer Stephen Burks as the keynote speaker for Dwell on Design 2014. Burks, along with his studio Readymade Projects, has taken a multifaceted approach to design, resulting in collaborations with international brands (Dedon, Calligaris, Missoni) while establishing his own philanthropy- and craft-driven initiatives in under-recognized communities across the globe. Burks will discuss his passion for craft and impart lessons for young designers on how to marry personal goals with marketable design.
