Last month, we were invited to participate in the first ever MODENUS TALKS, a series of round table discussions and fun challenges around subjects like business of design, design trends, technology in design and design that makes a difference. MODENUS TALKS is the brainchild of Veronika Miller, CEO of Modenus, who describes the concept as ““speed dating for knowledge”.
The invitation-only event took place at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas and was a perfect way to kick off our week in town for the KBIS/IBS Shows. We were surrounded by 45 influencers, including designers, showroom managers, manufacturers and members of the #BlogTourVegas group– all there to learn from each other and develop/strengthen relationships. Title sponsors for the first-ever Modenus Talks included 20-20 Technologies, Blanco, Mr. Steam and Walker Zanger.
Modenus Talks is a result of three years of design-centered conversations; of hearing about business related issues, concerns and challenges and helping Modenus partners and community members find solutions via highly visible events, online and in person. “It struck me after the last series of BlogTours that we hosted in London and Los Angeles, that when you bring talented people together, the answers to most business and design related questions are already in the room, you just have to know to ask the right questions,” states Veronika Miller. “It was through casual conversations that meaningful bits of knowledge were shared, making the groups walk away with a thought, an idea, a new way of doing something. That’s the premise for Modenus Talks.”
We’re excited to see how #ModenusTalks develops in other markets and hope to see it in L.A. in October!
