Bold Summit Set for Summer in Las Vegas

The Business of Luxury Design (BOLD) Summit, formerly known as the Business of Design (BOD) Conference, will host its annual event this summer at the Wynn  in Las Vegas.

Set to take place Aug. 28-29, the BOLD Summit is designed to provide interior designers, architects, design-build professionals, landscape designers and architects, and other luxury design service-providers with resourceful information and networking opportunities. 

The two-day event has been created for business owners whose professional knowledge has outgrown other industry events, having found them to be too basic or cursory for their particular needs as luxury service providers. The event’s new host, Julia Molloy, founder of Molloy Management Group,  brings more than 20 years of business operations management experience to the conference. 

Originally launched in 2003 and hosted by David Shepherd, MBA and design business specialist, the Business of Design Conference is receiving a fresh new approach under the as the BOLD Summit.  

“The BOLD Summit’s intense course aims to provide a dynamic and collaborative learning experience for design professionals to help build personal wealth and company success,” Molloy said. “As a first-year host, I am excited to share my own knowledge and business management expertise as well as a curated faculty of industry and world business leaders to an exclusive group of elite designers, in a ground-breaking and renewed fashion.”

Molloy and her presenters will enlighten attendees on critical business topics such as developing profit centers, luxury brand development, wealth development, and marketing in the new age of design. Attendees will participate in actionable training workshops with technical tools and financial analysis for their firms. The BOLD Summit will also feature revolutionary resources like worksheets and business planning documents that will be available for download and completed in real-time during the conference as well as a take-away DVD of the presentations.

“The BOLD Summit’s mission is to facilitate transformation," Molloy said. "This means not only providing knowledge and inspiration, but the tools owners need to help implement change once they return to their offices."

BOLD will feature a selection of seminars with industry leaders and icons including Mike Peterson, publisher of Luxe Interiors + Design South Florida magazine; Christopher Kennedy, luxury interior designer and furniture line designer; Frank Mastronuzzi, MBA, CPA and former chief financial officer of Michael Smith, Inc.; Chris Ramey, founder of the Home Trust and the Luxury Marketing Council; Kim Kuhteubl, authentic branding expert; Lloyd Princeton, founder of Design Management Company; and Don Eberly and Jeff Collard, co-owners of Eberly & Collard Public Relations.
