ASID Georgia Hosts Inaugural Tabletop Event
We recently participated in the first ever ASID Georgia tabletop event held at The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta as one of 50 vendors that came to meet with its interior designer members. Armed with copies of our January Green Issue and Annual Kitchen & Bath Planner Issue, we enjoyed introducing the designers to our publicatin as well as hearing positive feedback from those that were already familiar with it.
Chapter president Ann Wisniewski, owner of AJW Designs Inc., says they hope to make it an annual event to raise awareness about the products and services that are available to interior designers in Atlanta and the region.
“Tonight, I challenge each of you to get out of your comfort zone,” Wisniewski wrote in a letter in the tabletop event booklet. “Yes, we all need to see those familiar faces that we have depended on in the past, but we also need to reach out to those new faces and new products that we haven’t used before.”
In the wake of the event, we are excited to see what the designers are working on and look forward to new collaborations. We will definitely be watching to find out who the big winners are at the chapter’s next event, its annual Design Excellence Awards on April 12.
