LVDC to host 3 October events alongside weekly designer lunch program
Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC) is set to host three educational, celebratory and fundraising events in addition to an ongoing exhibitor-hosted weekly designer lunch program in October at World Market Center Las Vegas: a color presentation with Sherwin Williams and an Art 4 Autism artist reception on Oct. 6, and a women’s educational and networking event on Oct. 26.
“LVDC is always finding more ways to bring the Las Vegas design community together, and October offers multiple events to celebrate and learn,” said Cain Brodie, general manager of LVDC. “With three events and an ongoing lunch program, designers are invited to attend LVDC every week to elevate their sourcing and educational experience with our state-of-the-art resources.”
LVDC First Friday educational seminars will return this October with the Sherwin-Williams Colormix 2024, presented by Laurie Clark, Sherwin-Williams senior designer and account executive. The seminar will present a biennial color trend report that distills large-scale trend stories into components colors, carefully collected into four key chromatic families. Attendees will discuss the future drivers influencing color and design trend, look at macro themes and global trends, and embark on a visual journey with stimulating imagery, design interpretations and research that supports the 2024 Colormix forecast. The seminar will be held Friday, Oct. 6, at 11 a.m. in LVDC seminar room, A240.
Also on Oct. 6, LVDC will host a Champagne Artist Reception, celebrating and marking the end of its third annual edition of the Art 4 Autism exhibition, a monthlong fundraiser, in partnership with Families for Effective Autism Treatment (FEAT). The installation of custom art created by adults and children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder is currently on display in the Atrium of Building A, and every original piece in the installation is available for auction. 50% of proceeds raised will benefit FEAT and 50% will be given directly to artists.
On Thursday, Oct. 26, LVDC will host its second annual women’s event in partnership with Chic Compass Magazine, titled “Women of Las Vegas | The Game Changers,” a program celebrating the women who are driving innovation, fostering growth and shaping the future of business in Las Vegas. Main elements include panel discussions, networking, a business showcase and community building — all with a focus on empowerment, leadership, equality, inclusivity and inspiration. The women’s event will run from 12 to 5 p.m., with Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman welcoming guests during lunch. Seats are limited, and 100% of the proceeds from the day will benefit The Forgotten Song Foundation.
Throughout the month of October, LVDC brands are hosting weekly Tuesday lunch sessions for interior designers and their clients. Running now through the end of Fall, one brand-per-week will provide lunch at noon.
