Join us in San Francisco for the 2017 Design Leadership Summit. An innovative thought-leadership symposium promoting growth within the design industry through education, inspiration, community, and connectivity. As we continue our commitment and focus on inspired content and world-class speakers, this year’s Summit will kick-off at the opening of the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show, followed by a condensed 2-day program with a strong focus on interactive workshops and networking opportunities. Through a series of San Francisco-specific content and curated tours, we look forward to opening the doors to this uniquely historic city.

The Majesty of Italian Manuacturing

Monday, April 10th – Thursday, April 13th

Andrea Rubelli of Rubelli & Donghia knows textiles. In fact, his family has been weaving since 1858 in Venice. This Spring, we were thrilled to offer DLN Members an insiders view of the Italian manufacturing world of the Rubelli family in an intimate travel experience that began in Como, through Vicenza, and ended in Venice.
