The annual IFDA New England Membership Dinner has in the past had a universal appeal to all our members.  The 10th annual is shaping up to be no exception.

 It’s a great chance to not only see the latest & greatest of our vendors wares but to interact, ask questions and offer suggestions on an intimate one on one basis with some of the most talented and cutting edge suppliers to the design industry anywhere.    Browsing the vendor tables, while enjoying a gourmet catered dinner has not only been a fun and unique experience but has also been a great opportunity to gather information on new products and services that can be added to your arsenal to present to your clients.

This year will include an interesting, visually compelling, and topical presentation by world renowned interior designer, educator, and author Susan Slotkis entitled   “Color Trends & Other Directions”.  She will also be signing her latest book, Foundations of Interior Design.

The evening will be a multifaceted event of lively networking, tasty food, cutting edge supplier news and great information on the latest trends in interior design and the drinks are on the exhibitors.  Don’t miss it!
