April 2021 Communications Week | Spring MKT

Inspired Group Discussions Hosted by Leading Manufacturers

The French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire once wrote, “The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.”  These days, our “books” have become online meetings. Our industry is working together, like a symphony, to share their creations with the community in this new format, changing the way we think, live and interact – and underscoring the great impact design has on our daily lives. Sharing knowledge in this way is each person’s gift to the trade community.

Now, more than ever, our homes are our havens and the passion that goes into the creation of fine furnishings and textiles resonates in our environments, carrying us through to the next chapter of our lives.

To this end, we open up the floor once again to our manufacturers who will be sharing their experiences, updates and information about their newest creations with a special eye toward artisanal craftsmanship, production processes and the inspiration behind their collections. This is the essence of DI Communications Week and we are truly glad you are with us.

Please join your community during the week of April 26th -30th for a week of lively discussions with leading manufacturers. You will be emailed a confirmation of your registration with a Zoom link.  Join the event by clicking on the link at the start time of each event.

Every event has a different registration and registration link, so don’t forget to add the events to your calendars for easy access. See you there!
