Industry Partner Benefits

Industry Partner Benefits

Expand your business and network with fellow interior design
industry professionals.

The ASID Industry Partners program is dedicated to providing a forum that unites the professional designer with the interior furnishings
industry, supplying services and manufactured products integral to the successful practice of interior design. Both interior designers and industry representatives share mutual concerns, common goals and financial interdependence. Together they work to improve products and services, business practices, design education and inter-communication.

In addition, ASID Industry Partners seek to raise the professional level of the interior design practice through participation and support of research, educational programs and other activities. Through this interaction with ASID professionals, the potential exists for ASID Industry Partners to expand their knowledge of the practice of interior design and increase their share of the marketplace.
