The conference was a pivotal moment for me both personally and with my business, and it’s knowing there are some designing sisters I can lean on that’s helped me make it through.

Gained a wealth of knowledge and met some really great designers. Everyone was so humble and down to earth.

Each speaker offered information that has inspired me to continue to pursue a career in interior design. The most rewarding were the small group breakout sessions. It was truly an amazing experience.
