Designers Talk

The Intersection of Hospitality and Workplace Design

November 11, 2019
Join us as design industry leaders discuss the impact, challenges, and strategies of blurring the boundaries between hospitality and workplace design.
What is the influence of hospitality design in creating welcoming workplace interiors, whether for established clients or co-working spaces? And, as technology and travel enable work to be anywhere at any time, how is the design of hospitality interiors allowing for collaboration and casual productivity?
The discussion will be moderated by John Czarnecki, Hon. IIDA, Assoc. AIA, Deputy Director and Senior Vice President of IIDA.
Panelists include:
  • Tim Duffy, Ind. IIDA, National Key Accounts Manager, Room & Board Business Interiors
  • Annie Lee, IIDA, Principal, ENV
  • Krista Ninivaggi, IIDA, Founder, K&CO
  • Barry Richards, IIDA, Principal, Rockwell Group
Reception: 6 p.m.
Panel Discussion: 7 p.m.
Arrive early for the special networking reception, and enjoy free drinks and bites with fellow design professionals and panelists. Connect and learn from designers in both the hospitality and workplace sectors.
A special thanks to our sponsor:
