Over 100 designers and manufacturers took part in Interior Design's second re:Source conference (#IDResource), a targeted-buyer event that connects leading design decision-makers and product manufacturers and suppliers. Held at the first LEED certified hotel in Seattle, Hyatt at Olive 8, from August 13-16, the Seattle edition of re:Source included visits to Frank Gehry's EMP Museum, Melrose Market and Aragona, and guest speakers from The Awesome Foundation, ThinkLab and Material ConneXion.
Attendees enjoyed accredited programming on innovation; offsite tours; and targeted, face-to-face meetings on product and ideas. The program aims to increase sales effectiveness by targeting designers that have been pre-qualified by Interior Design Research, delivering key designers from Interior Design's Top 100 Giants, Rising Giants and Market Sector (e.g. hospitality, health care) Giants.
