2014 ART Conference Set for San Diego: ART, the home accent industry trade association, will hold its annual conference May 1-4, 2014 at Paradise Point in San Diego. The ART Conference specializes in inspiring programming tailored for the home accent industry. This year’s conference chair is Lee Hershberg, IMCenters. “The richness and depth of design in San Diego’s home fashion community clinched the decision to hold our annual conference in San Diego next year. We are super excited to be building 2014 programming around several focus group sessions held with key industry manufacturers, retailers, and rep organizations, during the summer market season, from which we gleaned key industry ideas, challenges, and impediments to peak performance in today’s home furnishings climate. We are excited to work toward solutions next May in San Diego,” says ART Conference chair Lee Hershberg of IMCenters. Corporate and activity sponsors are signing up now and registration for attendance will begin in January 2014. For more information on ART or ART Conference, call (704) 376-4278.
