Arc Interiors

The Forum for America's leading Interior Architects

September 21-24, 2023


America’s top architecture and interior design firms with live commercial projects

Getting specified for commercial interior design projects is one of life’s little challenges and you can’t get there alone. Vital connections need to be made along the way.

Arc Interiors brings America’s Top 100 Architecture and Interior Design Firms together with suitably qualified vendors for 3 days and 3 nights of one-to-one meetings and abundant networking. That’s America’s most senior and difficult-to-meet interior design project specifiers in one place, relaxed and ready to talk. May we suggest that it’s got ‘vital connections’ written all over it.

To get a proper measure of this, you need to see who comes.

Scroll down the page for a snapshot of who was with us at the last Arc Interiors event. Better still, get the full confirmed attendee list so far for this year.

Commercial interior design projects throughout America

America’s top Architects and Interior Designers will be with us in Texas this September all with portfolios of live, confirmed commercial interior projects, or they don’t make the cut.

Now consider the time, effort and expense it would take to even try to get in front of this number and calibre of decision maker and you’ll start to appreciate what’s on offer here.

Interior project specifiers

These are the people who decide who gets specified for the large-scale commercial interior design projects throughout America and beyond. If commercial interior projects are important to your business, these are the people you need in your life and Arc Interiors is the only event that delivers them.

How it Works

One-to-one meetings with America’s top architects and interior designers

Like all BOND events, this is about who comes and the quality of access you have to them.

Your experience centres around a series of private, one-to-one meetings between America’s top architecture and interior design firms and vendors that each have selected before the event. And this is just the start: you are all together for 3 days and 3 nights, away from the distractions of project and studio environments, in a uniquely relaxed set up where you can properly get to know each other. And this is where the commercial interior design project trail really lights up. Because this goes way beyond interior project leads – this is about relationships and connections and the very real collaborative possibilities that come from them.

Commercial interior design: your project community awaits

America’s top A&D Firms have pretty hectic schedules so they come to Arc Interiors to get away from interior project pressures to find inspiration and to connect with solutions providers who can help them deliver something outstanding for their clients. And if you want to get a true understanding of the needs and aspirations of America’s interior design project leaders and have some interesting solutions to discuss, you will not find a better platform.

Still a bit cynical? Some testimonials might help. Or a video? Better still, have a conversation with us because it’s hard to make this real for you simply through words on our website. It’s a good idea to talk to some people who have already attended a BOND event to get things from their side and we’d be happy to point you in the right direction.

For suppliers, Arc Interiors is the best way, bar none, to win hearts and minds at America’s leading A&D firms.

For Architecture and Interior Design firms, the value lies in re-connecting with peers and discovering the best solutions to your design challenges from the experts who will be your lifeline.

Great meetings but, most importantly, great vibes and connections. Arc Interiors is the perfect occasion to lay the foundations for long-lasting relationships, that would be profitable for mutual business.

This interactive presentation will engage your audience by allowing individuals to smell aromas by asking the question, what if scent was a tool that changed the perception of design?

Seminar - Achieve Your Ideal Performance State

Cesar Gamio | Director, Dharma Centre of Wellbeing

Read More Read Less


Research shows that high performance under pressure does not come to down to merely cognitive capacity, material rewards, the right culture or management by objectives. A successful approach to sustainable performance and burnout prevention must consider the person as a whole. 

The key to enabling people to flourish under pressure lies in an integrated theory of performance management that addresses the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Each of these four levels profoundly influences the others, and failure to address any one of them can have detrimental consequences upon performance. 

The Achieve Your Ideal Performance State programme has been designed to provide knowledge, guidance and support to equip participants with the tools required to improve their self-management skills, to thereby improve their resilience and ability to deliver results under pressure.

By learning how to increase their human capacities at all levels, participants will bring their talents and skills to full fruition, allowing them to develop their ideal performance state.
