The series will run twice a month from August 18, 2020 until October.

National Account Managers Round Table

Architecture and interior design firms share many of the same client, budget and space planning challenges, but they also experience pressures and nuances that are distinct to each profession. During this session, learn about a few of those key pressures, and what architecture firms need from their relationships with supply partners. The panel will also address the current challenges and evolving relationship between designers and industry.

“I attended this course in May in Calgary. We had the great opportunity to interact directly with architects and designers in my territory. Around lunch time we had the chance to network and create relationships that may have taken more time if I tried to go directly to the firm. I am really looking forward for the next course!
Thanks Barbora Krsiakova and the IDC team for the warm welcoming.” – Léa El Jawad, Architect and Designer Sales
