About Design Expo
The West Texas Design Expo has a 30-year legacy at Texas Tech University. Each October, representatives bring the newest products and materials to design professionals and students. This event connects the designers and student with the best in the contract furnishings industry. Our Design Expo allows exhibitors to introduce their products to future designers, while educating them in the latest product design.
One exciting change this year is the addition of a professional hour, which will be open to all local professionals to come and visit with the vendors the hour before the students arrive. The professional hour will run from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Our hope is that you will have the opportunity to speak to many students and professionals.
Professional Vignette Displays
Last year we introduced a new feature to Expo that was very successful: design vignettes. The design vignettes consisted of products contributed by various companies. This is free of charge and a great way for students to experience the products. The design vignettes consisted of companies who brought furniture or products to be displayed in an 8' X 8’ booth. The vignettes were used as a photo booth and as a stop on a scavenger hunt. If you are interested in providing furniture or materials for a vignette, please contact the Expo Coordinator.
