Business of Home is thrilled to announce the third annual Future of Home Conference in Manhattan, September 13-14, 2021.
We’ve officially entered the Decade of Home, and the industry is thriving—demand for goods and services has never been higher, and we’re busier than ever. The industry has a lot to celebrate—and a host of new challenges: How can businesses turn high demand into meaningful growth? What does success look like in this new landscape, and how do we measure it? How has the pandemic shifted consumer behavior and psychology? How do we continue to inspire our clients—and stay inspired ourselves? This two-day conference will offer tactical answers to these pressing questions and more through in-depth conversations, presentations, workshops and exhibitions.
Hear from authors, thought leaders, designers, makers and experts in TED-style presentations, fireside chats and moderated panels. Among the curated speakers are buzzy names like The Passion Economy author and Planet Money podcast co-founder Adam Davidson, who talks about creative entrepreneurship; former Obama White House social secretary Deesha Dyer, with an inside look on the role design plays in diplomatic relations; Joyful author Ingrid Fetell Lee, sharing her latest research on design personalities; and fashion designer Christian Siriano, who gives all the details on his pivot to home. Plus, Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler make predictions about the future of life at home, and Martha Stewart and Baccarat CEO Jim Shreve share the stage to unveil their new collaboration and extoll the power of partnerships. See the complete speaker line-up here, and check back for updates as new speakers are being added daily.
Guests will also be invited to tour a collection of high-concept, immersive exhibitions featuring technological innovation and product debuts—while bumping elbows with potential collaborators, partners and clients during the breaks.
