Join IDC in a new National Panel Discussion Program that will help identify issues in the interior design industry and discuss possible solutions for the future of the industry, during and after COVID-19. The virtual program delivery will allow IDC members to connect and learn together across the country.

The panels are a part of IDC’s initiative to ensure members are still able to share ideas, connect, and benefit from their membership in lieu of being able to do so at IDC’s annual design symposium, which was cancelled this year due to the global pandemic.

All upcoming panels will be featured on IDC’s events calendar, with the first panel launching on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020.

A special thanks to Knoll for sponsoring this new program.
