Designing Destinations


May 26-June 2, 2024

On behalf of the Carolinas Chapter of ASID we are excited to present you our newest Designing Destination tour!   Our Designing Destination journeys are extraordinary, curated experiences full of behind the scenes opportunities and our 2024 will be the best yet!  We hope you will join us as we sail the Dalmatian Coast aboard the luxury yacht, Symphony.   As with our previous trips everyone is invited!  You do not need to be a designer, or a ASID Carolinas member to attend.  Past groups have been comprised of a wonderful blend of designers, contractors, realtors, design clients, design industry partners,  and members of the general public.    If Croatia is on your bucket list and you love art, culture and captivating cities please consider joining us.
