ASID Returns to ICFF with an Expanded Educational Program

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) returns to ICFF with an expanded educational program for industry professionals and a new student day program. Positioned on the show floor, the ASID educational series will bring together thought leaders and industry experts to present insightful content throughout ICFF.

“Keeping up on the latest industry standards, from the essentials of the business of design to the latest discoveries of how design reduces stress, enhances creativity and expedites healing, is essential for all interior designers,” says Karol Kaiser, vice president of Education and Engagement. “Our partnership with ICFF gives designers the opportunity to get a year’s worth of education in a four day period.”

This year’s sessions include topics on business practices, design’s impact on human health and wellness, housing trends, and materials. Registered session attendees will earn 0.1 Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) approved continuing education units (CEUs) per session.

Sessions will take place each day on the third level of the Javits Center, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
