2019 IIDA SHIFT Student Conference

Again, IIDA-WI participated in sending two IIDA student members to the 2019 IIDA SHIFT Student Conference sponsorship by IIDA-WI, M&M Office Interiors and Haworth. The conference is designed to elevate the profession of Interior Design and includes: project and firm tours, portfolio reviews, and mock interviews conducted by working professionals, an industry expo, and a variety of networking opportunities. This is another benefit of being an IIDA Student Member.  Below our two attendees share their gratitude for the experience - we share our gratitude for their enthusiasm for the profession!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend the IIDA SHIFT Conference in Dallas, TX. It was an incredible experience and I will be able to apply so much of what I learned to the interview process and my future career! It was awesome to hear from many industry professionals about topics such as innovation and design thinking, material health, and the entire scope of the professional world. Thank you again for the opportunity!" Maya Mockert

Thank you so much for providing me with the opportunity to attend the IIDA SHIFT Conference! It was such an inspiring and enlightening experience and I have definitely incorporated my new knowledge into my design practice already! More specifically, I’ve been taking the time to look through the materials and chemicals of the products and selections specified in order to promote “healthier buildings” for inhabitants to increase the well being of all users! Thank you again for this opportunity and for all of your support!" Claire Pellegrini
