IDC Interior Design Keynote Panel at BUILDEX Edmonton

Published by Candis Green, March 27, 2013.

The topic of the IDC Interior Design Keynote Panel at this year’s BUILDEX Edmonton was “Trends in Office Design”.  Held on March 19, IDC members spoke to a sold out crowd about how they are building workplaces that are about more than just function. The panelists debated how they see the workplace evolving and what factors must be considered to meet new demands and expectations of their clients.

Michele Rumbold, IDA member and active member of the IDC CEU Committee, had this to say about the event: “The seminar was a big success with fantastic attendance! It was exciting to have a room so full. There was a mix of designers and facility managers. The panelists were top notch and the attendees’ feedback was very positive. The moderator was well prepared with good questions and we had some great discussions.”
