3 Great Marketing Solutions Born From Design Tech Summit Las Vegas 2014.
The Design Tech Summit (DTS) just made it to Vegas and it was a success! “This was the best educational event we attended at Design & Construction Week,” said C. Lewis, a designer attending the summit.
DTS was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Feb. 4-6. Throughout the event, guest speakers unveiled marketing tips and tech tools to business professionals. With the help of celebrity host, HGTV’s Kelli Ellis, and companies like HOUZZ and Evernote, DTS taught attendees how to use technology and leverage themselves against their competitors in the design and construction industry.
“You pulled off a great event and in my opinion, was one of the more engaging and informative sessions offered at the NAHB event,” said Erin Hall of Evernote Business.

The event is open to design professionals, small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to re-imagine and re-tool their professional future.
