“One of the best decisions I made for my business”
Attending the 2020 Interior Design Business Success Summit was one of the best decisions I've made when it comes to my business.
The speakers were phenomenal and discussed topics I had not even considered such as the type of business insurance I should have to protect myself, website development and so much more.
Lots of great information and networking opportunities. I highly recommend it!
– April Gandy
2020 rocked the interior design industry
It’s time to hit back!
As the interior design industry continues to evolve and grow to the ever-changing marketplace, the need for outside the box thinking and coming together as a community is needed more than ever.
And after a year like 2020, we deserve an event where we can come together and discuss it all — and so much more!
Making time for yourself and your business isn’t a luxury — it’s a must
Be honest: When’s the last time that you really decided to treat yo’self in your business?
To dedicate three full days (out of your yoga pants and into real pants or even dress #fancy) to evolve your skills as a business owner, build deep connections with fellow designers and incredible vendors, and really plan for your next level of growth?
If you’re like most interior designers...
The answer is never.
Here's the truth:
There has never been a better time to...
- Narrow in on your ideal client and finally work with dream clients
- Learn how to move two steps forward after taking one step back - also known as the “cha cha” but in business rather than the dance floor
- Go from feeling defeated to empowered by your financials
- Learn about the mindset shifts to leap to your next level of growth in less time
- Build a winning team that is just as invested in your business as you are
- Learn how to work with vendors the right way (that saves time + makes your more money)
- Understand the impact your designs have on the lives of your clients and the value you bring
- Meet new vendors, set up new accounts, and see new product lines
- Connect with other designers and develop local and nationwide relationships

“This is a must-attend event for your interior design business!”
Attending the inaugural Interior Design Business Success Summit has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business in years... even amidst the uncertainty of 2020.
Michelle's wisdom and encouragement were exactly what I needed to push me out of the burnout cycle I’d found myself in.
The speakers were fantastic, I made new friends, and I was able to make connections with vendors I didn't even know existed - allowing me to immediately add profit to my bottom line. This is a must-attend event.

I know exactly what it’s like to feel overworked, overwhelmed, and underpaid as an interior designer.
A few years into my business, “overdeliver” was my middle name — and my business, bank account, and boundaries paid the price.
That’s why I put the Interior Design Business Summit together.
When I started my interior design firm, it took me a while to figure out how to run an interior design business profitably - without running myself into the ground.
The secret sauce to a successful interior design business
Once I figured out the secret sauce – simple, elegant processes for doing great work and making great money – I knew I had to share it with other designers.
So whether you have been in business for 10 days or 10 years, come learn more about the business of interior design from industry experts and spend some time at Dallas Market Center surrounded by other designers.

Imagine spending 3 whole days immersed in the business side of your interior design business...
If just one idea, process, or mindset shift happened during this event for you, it could more than pay for the cost to attend.
Last year’s attendees applied what they learned to exponentially increase their income in 2021 — and you can do the same!

“Tremendous value to my business and clients!”
At times, running your interior design business can feel lonely and intimidating.
Attending the Interior Design Business Success Summit allowed me to take a confident leap into the world of designer trade while also making lifetime friendships and memories.
It has added tremendous value to my business and the clients I serve.

“A game-changer for my interior design business!”
Attending the Interior Design Business Success Summit – even amongst the uncertainty of 2020 – was a game-changer for my interior design business.
Not only did the mystery of "market" disappear with the personal tour but also with the time to explore on our own.
All of the speakers were top-notch and each brought a relevant topic to expand my business vision as well as send me home with some immediate ideas to implement. I plan on attending again in 2021!
