(Re)Development in Atlanta: Turning Spaces into Experiences that Work for Everyone

Attend this one-day event focusing on the "changing nature" of development in Atlanta, Sept. 24, 2019




The Atlanta Chapter of the Retail Design Institute will present (Re)Development in Atlanta: Turning Spaces into Experiences that Work for Everyone, taking place at the Met Atlanta on September 24, 2019 from 4-8 p.m. featuring multi-disciplinary speakers from around the city.

The Atlanta Southeast Chapter of the RDI believes that our retail designers are in the right place at the right time to not only elevate retail design, but to have a larger impact on the communities served by their work. Specifically, we believe and promote the concepts of people-first, considering communities, inclusiveness, and stretching our professional boundaries beyond designing spaces to also designing experiences.

We are staging this first-of-a-kind interactive conversation to bring together various specialists from the real estate value chain. The design is to encourage participants to forge new, valuable and lasting relationships while better understanding each other’s professional and personal needs. What might Atlanta look like when we turn strangers into friends? How can each of us contribute? It could be amazing! At the end of the day, the way Atlanta grows is up to us.

Event registration is $25 for members and $50 for non-members. More details and registration can be found on our website:!event/2019/9/24/atl-se-re-development-in-atlanta-turning-spaces-into-experiences-that-work-for-everyone

Embracing Whole-Brained Thinking in the Design Journey

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
