Announcing DFA Community: Cocktails & Conversation
A New Event Series Exclusively for DFA Members

This Fall, DFA is excited to roll out a new initiative that provide members the opportunity to gather in small groups in a relaxed setting to discuss challenges in their specific product category and brainstorm innovative ideas and solutions to spur future growth. The first DFA Community event will be hosted in New York on November 11th specifically for members in the Fabric and Wallcoverings categories. A separate invitation will be sent to those members with all the details. 

Additional events will be scheduled through 2020 for members in other categories including: Furnishings, Lighting + Surfaces (including Rugs + Flooring), Multi-line + Independent Showrooms, Design Centers + Designers.


This initiative was born out of the vibrant discussions that take place during the roundtables at DFA’s membership meetings, and will ensure that all members have the opportunity to express their opinions and share their ideas. It’s this collaborative spirit that will help move our industry forward. 


This event series is open only to current DFA members; however, we always welcome new members, so we encourage you to email: if you’d like to join the DFA and attend these exciting events. Please keep your eyes open for additional information about the timing and location for each of the DFA Community events.
