Since 2014, J+J Flooring Group has convened an annual Senior Living Design Symposium with a small group of designers and subject experts. The purpose of the SLDS is to encourage a robust exchange of ideas and experiences – and enjoy the unique community and culture of the city in which the event is held.
Designers are asked to come prepared to give a short, Pecha Kucha style presentation on their recent work or a topic related to senior living design.
The first year J+J produced a trend booklet and issued a news release about the SLDS. But it knew that so much more could be done to share the information that was exchanged during the event.
And that’s where I went to work, helping J+J to develop the program, select participants, find guest speakers, serve as a discussion moderator, and generate content from the 2015 and 2016 events. Content we produced included the video above, blog posts, articles, news announcements, and these trend reports:
