We were honored to receive another special invitation to a trade event this time in Greensboro & Highpoint, NC. Called The Designer Experience. The Designer Experience is a two-and-a-half day symposium exclusively for the design trade. This creative forum puts a unique spotlight on North Carolina’s enduring legacy as a center for textiles, furniture-making and manufacturing, as well as its renaissance and appreciation for farm-to-table dining and wining. Designed to inspire, educate, entertain, and foster life-long relationships, the event delivers custom-designed, accredited educational experiences time to savor the best food and culture North Carolina has to offer in the company of your colleagues.
The event was put on by PBM Brand and Designers Today Magazine (which if you aren’t reading, you SHOULD be).
