In honor of its 10th anniversary, the Design Leadership Network will host its largest gathering to date with approximately 300 attendees including principals of top interior design and architecture firms, members of the media and corporate sponsor executives.
To be held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, October 27-29, the Design Leadership Summit's opening day will commence with a gala and discussion between architect Frank Gehry and architecture critic Paul Goldberger at the Disney Concert Hall.

"Hosting the event in Los Angeles is consistent with our focus on business centers of the design world and cities that have an enormous amount of culture and design activity in them," said DLN founder Peter Sallick.
Summit content will touch on the rich culture and design history of Los Angeles, according to Sallick, but the official theme is "The Ultimate Masterclass." Programming will cover arts, culture and the design community with professionally guided workshops.
In addition to the annual Summit, DLN organizers have created a robust year-round schedule of events for its members, which included an visit to the office of Steven Gambrel, a trip to Cuba, a presentation and cocktail event with hotelier Jeff Klein during LEGENDS of La Cienega, and a full-day workshop on leadership and firm management in Detroit in partnership with Gilbert family and Shinola (to take place in June).
Summit programming will be announced in the coming months.
