Event description


Join us for 2018 RockCon Interior Design Expo & Conference! ASID, NEWH, NKBA, and WiD have joined forces with IIDA to make RockCon an inclusive interior design based tradeshow. We believe that the more Interior Designers can find common ground, the stronger we can make our profession. There will be nearly 100 exhibitors displaying their newest and best products.

The Expo begins at 10am and ends at 6pm, with a Happy Hour from 4pm-6pm.

Additionally, we will be offering 12 CEUs across four time slots, catering to both Residential and Commerical interiors as well as general professional development and sustainability.

AIA | IDCEC | GBCI Presenter: Merchants + Inscape

Our high speed, high stress and always-on lifestyles are taking a toll on our wellbeing. Biophilic De- sign recognizes and embraces how humans are biological creatures with deeply rooted biological needs. Our need to maintain a connection to nature—for our physical, physiological and emotional wellbeing has been understood by artists, scientists, and designers for many years. Today the benefits to our bodies and minds of this contact with nature are being understood in more detail and have brought biophilia and biophilic design to the forefront of our thinking and behavior. It’s now inspiring domestic and commercial environments around the world.


AIA | IDCEC | SHRM Presenter: Herman Miller

This CEU provides a more thorough understanding of cognitive ergonomics. Cognition is the way we acquire knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and our senses. A workplace that takes cognition into consideration in its design, including things like cognitive processing and informa- tion overload, helps us feel better. And when we feel better, we work better. By introducing participants to cognitive ergonomics and its implications for office design, this CEU will help them design workplaces that are healthier for everyone.


AIA | IDCEC | LACES | NKBA - RD Presenter: Glenrock Distributing + Interceramic

The one hour course will give design professionals a general understanding of natural stone and the best practices for care and maintenance. Find out what to expect from a stone sealer in both interior and exterior applications and discover the truth about when to seal and when not to seal. Discuss the chemical make-up of different types of cleaners and how they can affect the longevity of your stone installation.

AIA | IDCEC Presenter: Teknion

Often when faced with a complex problem, we tend to jump to the solution, but may exclude a critical part of the creative problem solving: discovery. Through this interactive workshop, design thinking principles are applied bringing the discovery process to life. Simple and effective tools used to define and solve a problem are shared throughout. The workplace is used as a foundation to illuminate how to use these tools, but are analogous to any complex issue you are facing.


AIA | IDCEC | GBCI Presenter: Humanscale

In a world where securing top talent is a competitive business advantage in the workplace, em- ployers spend time devising ways to attract and retain an exceptional workforce. As companies look to recruit the best and brightest from college campuses, they often overlook the one ideal recruitment strategy: the campus design itself.


IDCEC Presenter: Source Four + Arcadia

Companies are losing billions of dollars each year due to unhealthy employees suffering from chronic disease. In this course, we will explore the history of how design has had a direct impact on peoples overall wellness and how to improve environments to create a healthier workforce. Many companies across the world have already begun implementing changes in order to ensure their greatest asset, their employees, are healthier and happier. We look at those companies and discuss ways to help other businesses do the same.

The goal of this course is to understand the significance of a Social Media strategy as part of your company’s marketing plan, the different platforms available, and how best to use them.

Friday, September 7th | 5:00p - 6:00p 1 CE Courses


AIA | IDCEC Presenter: Knoll

The research study revealed a workplace that is dramatically different than one of just a generation ago. Knoll found five significant factors that c ontribute to a new way of working and drive new thinking about the work environment. Based on the findings, a new way to think about space has been identified. Defined as Immersive planning, the model not only blurs the lines between work, life and play, but also individuals and teams, primary workspaces and activity spaces, and owned and shared work areas and tools. Comfortable furnishings and fluid boundaries characterize this group-based workplace where the actions of the people themselves define the space. The result: an environment that creates a variety of experiences, transforming at a moment’s notice and evolving with use.
