Accredited by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC), the session will count for .1 CEU credits. Following High Point Market, the course will be presented throughout the U.S. to interior designers and industry professionals.
“As part of our long-standing reputation for thought leadership, we constantly share market, trend and product insights to support our customers and their businesses,” said Satya Tiwari, president of Surya.
“With our new accessories-focused educational curriculum, designers can arm themselves with information to better advise their clients in the specification phase and establish greater professional trust, while earning required annual education credits. This is a value-add we look forward to providing to our customers and the design community at large,” Tiwari said.
