The BIID is looking for members to participate in panels at tradeshows and feature in articles about the interior design industry.
The BIID regularly put members forward for PR and speaking opportunities. Over the years we have built excellent relationships with trade shows including Decorex, Focus, and Clerkenwell Design Week to name a few. Consumer and trade publications often approach the BIID for designers to include in articles.
We would like to be able to provide a diverse and inclusive selection of designers to the media and our event partners. To do this we need to build a speaker/spokesperson portfolio about members, their experience and expertise. We are especially keen to hear from and encourage members from diverse backgrounds, these include but not limited to, people of colour, people with disabilities and people from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. If you consider yourself to be from a group that is under-represented in the industry, then we would like to hear from you.
If you would like to be considered for these opportunities, please get in touch and tell us more about yourself. Please include:
- A short bio including your name, practice name and experience.
- A head shot.
- Special Interests i.e. art, antiques, sustainability, designing for disability, office design, yacht design etc. Many of our panels will include a specialist area such as 'How to approach art in interior design". This information will help us find the right fit for opportunities.
- Address - This will help us identify regional members who are often disadvantaged for talks in London and help identify speakers for regional events.
Most opportunities that arise will be for a BIID Registered Interior Designer®, as that means that a designer has met our rigorous registration assessment. However, there will also be opportunities for Associates, Provisional Associates and Students so we would like to hear from all our members'.
Please send all relevant information to email@example.com
