There is no other opportunity in New York City where one can engage in the Universal Design conversation. Changing demographics is changing the landscape of design. With limited resources and human diversity – functionality and sustainability has become fundamental when creating social inclusion. We have begun this conversation and we welcome you to join us! Universal Design 2017 Conference – New York City is a wide-ranging conference encompassing everything universal/inclusive design and how it will benefit people, communities and the planet. Universal Design Management and AEC Professionals Circle are bringing together thought leaders of the Universal Design approach from interior design, architecture, building and construction, marketing, product manufacturing, education and government industries. The combination of these platforms is a huge opportunity for businesses to learn, engage and grow.
It is our great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of Universal Design Management & AEC Professionals Circle to Universal Design Conference NYC, a multi disciplined gathering of educators, product and service innovators, built environment experts, decision makers and procurement officials interested in sharing knowledge and exploring innovative applications of Universal Design.
During this very special one-day event held at AIA NYC, we will convene and explore leading-edge Universal Design trends such as community resiliency, aging in place and livable communities through short 20 minute UDx Talk presentations. We will hear from leading industry experts, and learn about examples of excellence from companies and communities showcasing the principles of Universal Design.
We have partnered with AIA: Design for Aging. A forum dedicated to the needs of the aging population in an urban environment, by exploring design issues, developing universal design recommendations, increasing public awareness, and educating professionals in various fields of those needs, to create a more age-friendly City.
We hope you will join us and benefit from unique and powerful opportunities to network, collaborate, share and build trusting relationships.
