ASID @ Environments for Aging 2019 Edition to Showcase Impact of Design

ASID Kicks Off Emerald Expositions Partnership at EFA Conference in Salt Lake City from April 7-10

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) will highlight the impact of design at the Environments for Aging Expo & Conference (EFA) April 7-10 in Salt Lake City. Environments for Aging is a three-day conference that showcases today’s leading products and strategies for building adaptable, senior-friendly solutions for an aging and diversifying population. Following the Society’s partnership with Emerald Expositions in February, ASID will leverage their reach in the design community with enhanced show participation and custom programming built around EFA’s message of creating thoughtful, functional environments for every generation.

“The Environments for Aging conference focuses on a key issue with far-reaching impact – as our population grows older and more diverse, the need for aging-in-place solutions is rapidly increasing and vital to our well-being,” states Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, CEO, ASID. “As our first show since partnering with Emerald Expo, we’re proud to put forth the Society’s mission at such an important moment. We look forward to engaging with attendees on the necessity of adaptable design and exploring new solutions for an aging demographic.”

ASID will showcase a new installation during Environments for Aging, located outside the conference’s main exhibit hall. The space will provide an oasis to explore the impact of design in surprising and nuanced ways, inviting show-goers to network and engage with other design professionals equally invested in senior care solutions. ASID will also promote and organize the ASID DESIGN IMPACT Awards at EFA, focusing on exhibitor products that benefit the health and well-being of clients and/or the environment.

“There is a natural synergy between ASID and our design portfolio,” says Joe Randall, Executive Vice President, Emerald Expositions. “ASID has always taken a collaborative approach in their mission to educate designers and clients on the power of design, and Emerald is excited to headline this partnership at the upcoming Environments for Aging Expo.”

The 2019 Environments for Aging Expo & Conference will be held April 7-10 in Salt Lake City at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Registration is currently open through April 10, and ASID members can receive an additional 15% discount on the EFA conference pass with promo code ASID15.

About ASID

The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
