CAFÉ TABLES by
Designers Meet this
October for Annual
Next month, designers and manufacturers will meet at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Austin, Texas, for the annual
Design Connections. The three-day event by interiors+sources
magazine and nGage Events LLC., matches industry professionals
in education, healthcare, hospitality, and workplace design with
manufacturing leaders and the latest trends in interior design.
This year’s keynote will be designer, author, speaker, consul-
tant, and environmentalist Jason F. McLennan.
Considered one of the most influential individuals in sustainability, McLennan is the founder and creator of the Living Building
Challenge, one of the world’s most rigorous performance standards. Part of the International Living Future Institute, the Living
Building Challenge and additional certifications through the ILFI—
including Declare and JUST labels—pushes designers and architects to design buildings which push the limits of sustainability
and wellness beyond what has previously been considered.
Attendees of Design Connections can expect much more than
the latest in product innovation. Throughout their stay, they will
participate in breakout groups highlighting key considerations in
their field, as well as hear panel discussions and presentations
from industry experts, all while forming life-long connections.
