Discover what themes emerged from ASID tracking the “pulse” of the interior design world navigating business during COVID-19.
How are interior design practitioners, businesses, and the industry as a whole responding to and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic? ASID Research has asked that question since March 2020 through the Pulse Survey, capturing real-time data on the impact of the pandemic and design’s response. Find out what themes emerged from a year-in-review of Pulse Survey data. In this interactive session, you will connect with your fellow attendees through breakout rooms to share your stories and problem solve together over the challenges businesses are facing.
Attendees will interact with each other in virtual breakout rooms. Attendees’ camera and audio capabilities will be turned on for this session. This session will not be recorded.
