Social Media has become a super highway between me, my vendors and my reps. This type of communication has brought me closer to my product than I ever felt possible.  In the past designers tried to build relationships or learn what manufacturers had to offer in a once a month visit to their showroom or my workplace. Now, with the internet, they are just a click away……….
Last week I was asked to speak about Social Media at the Kravet Showroom, Arizona Design Center with two of my fellow designers.  This was my first speaking engagement and became possible through my social media efforts.
This coming Monday I am honored yet again. I am invited to:
“Thermador’s Luxury Design & Build Summit”  at the state of the art “BSH Gallery & Training Center”    here in Scottsdale, AZ.  This showroom features Thermador, Bosch & Gaggenau Appliances in actual kitchen vignettes and I hear it’s like no other showroom anywhere.
Myself and other designers from around the United States will be flown in (to bad I’m from Scottsdale)treated to massages (yeah!), golf, dinners, and a night on the town.  We will also be visiting their showroom, having a real life chef cook for us, and exposing us to what these companies have to offer.
This is “Part One” of my exciting experience w/Thermador!! Below is just a peak of the kitchen at the actual “BSH Gallery” showroom.
