CHICAGO MARCH 1, 2023—Chicago’s premier luxury industry event, PowerHouse SMART® Luxury Conference, is back in person on March 1 at the city’s iconic Merchandise Mart.
On Wednesday, March 1, 2023 from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. a leading group of builders, architects, developers, designers, landscape architects, real estate professionals and related affilates will all gather together in person to relationship build and share trends, insights and industry information in a collaborative, communal setting. It is a jam-packed day with a schedule neatly curated by industry experts.
“The 2023 Luxury Conference is going to be very special,” said Wendy Cohen, CEO of PowerHouse SMART®. “We have an amazing group of talented individuals in the luxury industry ready to build valuable relationships, learn from one another, and develop new business allainces the PowerHouse SMART Way.”
Back by popular demand, the 2023 event will include curated SMART Talk Speakers who will offer TEDx style talks to those gathered at the conference. Last year, speakers included Alan D. Lev, the chairman of Belgravia Group Ltd. to Robert Johnson, Chief Economic Inclusion Officer and General Counsel of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and Carrie McCormick, a top luxury real estate broker with @Properties, along with Brian Jessen of Guaranteed Rate and Raad Ghantous, the designer of iconic spas in five-star hotels, the show promises a wide range of perspectives for luxury industry leaders to be inspired.
As always a number of area industry associations will serve as collaborators too including: the American Society of Interior Designers, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Homebuilders Association of Greater Chicago, North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors, Illinois Assocation of Realtors, National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Chicago MidWest Chapter, Lakeland Builders Association, Highwood Area Design District, and Women in Luxury Design.
Returning again, as part of PowerHouse SMART’s commitment to educating emerging leaders, PHS’ association partners nominate several Emerging Leaders to participate in the event. Last year there are more than a dozen scholars who will be attending the conference—read about them here.
For the past seven years and continuing on, a percentage of ticket sales proceeds will go to Designs 4 Dignity, a Chicago nonprofit group that transforms nonprofit environments through pro bono design services and in-kind donations.
