    Event – CA Boom Design Show (6/26-28)

    The Arc_ID Program would like you to know about CA Boom Design Show June 26-28 (link)!

    Excerpts from the HDmag site about the event:

    The CA Boom Design Show—North America’s only multi-discipline nontraditional design trade fair exhibition combining the highest caliber of architects, designers, and design manufacturers on the West Coast—takes place in Beverly Hills June 26-28. The show is geared toward both the design trade and consumers. The event outgrew last year’s Barkar Hangar site in Santa Monica, and show manager Charles Trotter decided to move the exhibition into the mid-century modern former Robinsons-May department store in Beverly Hills…

    This year’s show will include a 40,000-square-foot CA Boom Design Store, where attendees can purchase some of the merchandise from major and independent design manufactures participating in the show. The CA Boom Design Store has partnered with Project Angel Food, a not-for-profit that cooks and delivers meals to men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses…

    …Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. will be reserved as a “Trade-Only Day,” open to qualified design, building, and entertainment industry professionals. Trade attendees are also permitted and encouraged to bring their non-trade clients to walk the show during the CA Boom Friday Trade Day. The day will segue into the CA Boom Friday Night Event, open to the general public for an admission price of $20 in advance or $25 at the door. CA Boom Trade attendees may come anytime Friday and stay through to the closing of the CA Boom Friday Night event.

    We hope to see you there!
