Advocacy Symposium

IIDA Advocacy Symposium 2019

Real Talk. Real Strategies. Real Results.

September 20 - 21, 2019
Boston, Massachusetts

We’ve heard from you. Commercial interior design advocates want to know real strategies to move the profession forward through legislative and public advocacy. This year, the symposium will focus on stories from experienced government affair professionals, experts in their fields, and successful commercial interior design advocates sharing real life lessons you can take back to your state and your chapter. IIDA invites you to the fifth annual symposium, which is two full days jam-packed with skill-improving sessions and networking opportunities.


Please see a tentative agenda of the action-packed days here.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20 will take place at the Massachusetts State House.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21 will take place at Allsteel Boston.
