“This year’s AIBD Annual Conference is providing the QUALITY education our members have been asking for!” says AIBD conference chairperson, Karen Kassik-Michelsohn. “The Institute of Classical Architecture is providing a full day of education to expand our knowledge and sharpen our design skills and our architectural tour will showcase some of the most beautiful historic homes in America! Come and join us in New England – you will be glad you did!”
The 2015 AIBD Architectural Tour includes three remarkable and unique perspectives on the lives of the people who lived and worked in the grand mansions of Newport. At all of the Newport Mansions, you will find a world of exceptional elegance and inspiration in architecture, art, interior design and landscapes. Join us for a journey back in time at one of America’s premier collections of historic house museums and 250 years of American history.
Lastly, the AIBD Annual Conference draws to an elegant close Friday night with our formal-optional American Residential Design Awards gala dinner. Gather for pre-reception cocktails to mingle with other convention attendees and the AIBD national leadership, then partake of a splendid dinner, all the while enjoying the historic beauty of the Providence Biltmore hotel.
