ILEA NCC and ILEA NSC Joint Program:
How to Bring Your Event Design to Life
Join us on Tuesday, January 17th
Need to get your creative juices flowing again? Join the two Bay Area ILEA chapters - ILEA-NCC and ILEA Napa-Sonoma - to hone your event design skills to kick off the New Year! From a fireside chat to a team table-setting design competition (think Top Chef "pantry"), the afternoon will offer something for everyone. Walk away with tips on how to brainstorm and curate designs and bring them to life on event day. And we'll finish out the evening with some delicious bites, sips, and mingling.

Don't forget to share this event with your fellow event prof friends so they too can register to join the fun!
