boardroom presentations throughout the duration of Design Connections.
The Design Connections 1:1 Meeting Zone offers attendees, vendors, and industry
experts the perfect opportunity to connect for 20-minute face-to-face meetings,
which helps ease the process for sourcing solutions. Respected industry figures

Connections can be made at traditional trade shows, but with the unique format
of Design Connections, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to meet with peers over the course of
two-plus days and dive deeper into discussions that cannot be had while walking
a show floor.
