The Trend Curve™ gets calls all the time asking when I am giving my next seminar. I am pleased to announce that my new seminar schedule is posted on this site. Just pull down the News & Talks tab above to see where I will be presenting in the near future.
The next event is one I am really looking forward to. On November 11 I will talk about home décor trends in San Francisco on behalf of the Interior Design Society (this group was the first of any in High Point to invite me to speak during the Furniture Market many years ago). I’ll be participating in a day-long session targeted to the interior design trade, but anyone can register and participate. The session will be held at the 600 Townsend Building downtown.
I will begin with an hour or so to talk about my color forecast for 2010. This forecast, called The Trend Curve Colors™ 2010, was released in September, but this is the first time I will be presenting the colors in a seminar (you can buy the color package at the Trend Store). I am very excited for this worldwide debut! Then I will talk about design details, updating the home-and-apparel connection and reviewing some of the most important style trends impacting interiors for 2009 and 2010.
After gaining so much knowledge, we’ll move to a hands-on workshop where participants in small groups will have a chance to concept a room setting or even a product using the color and trend details they have just heard. I have conducted workshops like this one in the past and they have always gotten rave reviews. I’m hoping this one will, too!
The afternoon will be spent on business topics—marketing and branding—that small businesses need to know to help them survive and thrive. Mary Sausen, a colleague, friend and contributor to The Trend Curve, is the presenter.
The seminar runs from 9 – 5. If you would like to join us in San Francisco, you can get more information and download a registration form from the Interior Design Society Events page. We all made a decision to keep the fee low and limit the number of participants small so we can maintain an intimate setting and answer every question, so if you are thinking of participating, please don’t wait too long to register. After the seminar, I’ll write in this blog again to let everyone know how things went.
