The International Interior Design Association’s New York Chapter (IIDA NY) is proud to host the in-person return of the Design Exchange Round Table (DEX NYC®) on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Prince George Ballroom in New York City. This signature event brings together creatives from multiple disciplines to promote the communication of ideas across industry barriers.

DEX NYC®, an annual, invite-only, one-night event, emphasizes the cross pollination of design disciplines in an engaging, communal setting. DEX NYC® challenges designers of all trades to connect with creative professionals and exchange bold, new ideas and objects that push the creative boundaries of design. This roundtable event will feature 12 creative professionals from a variety of design disciplines.

“DEX NYC® connects people, places, objects and ideas in a lively communal experience to talk about design,” said Amy Mays, co-chair of IIDA NY’s DEX NYC® Committee. “This event is intended to unlock unexpected moments of inspiration and discover the unique crossroads of different types of design. The value of these connections proves mutually beneficial for both the speaker and participants, exposing new lenses and views from another world of design.”

This year’s DEX NYC® speakers will include makeup guru Margina Dennis, bestselling children’s author Raj Haldar, documentarian and commercial film director Peter Sillen, photographer Spencer Ostrander, brand and innovation strategist Elizabeth Talerman, organic farming expert Will Leibee, design trend forecaster Nicki Gondell, singer-songwriter Kat Spina, jewelry designer Ayala Naphtali, museum docent Diane Simon, distiller and beekeeper Claire Marin, and more.

“We’re so thrilled that this gathering is returning to its original in-person format,” said Jennifer Eno, co-chair of IIDA NY’s DEX NYC® Committee. “This event provides an opportunity for design professionals to connect and interact on a personal level. Being present at an event with like-minded individuals can be inspiring and motivating.”

A dessert and champagne reception will follow the roundtable to give participants additional time to connect with designers in a casual, informal meeting.
