Palm Springs Modern Design Expo
New Event Will Launch During Modernism Week 2018

(Palm Springs, CA) An exciting new event showcasing cutting-edge modern design and technology will be introduced during the first weekend of Modernism Week in 2018. The Palm Springs Modern Design Expo will feature 40 exhibitors presenting the newest and hippest elements for modern living including dynamic and energy efficient building materials, cutting-edge home appliances, smart home technology and security, hand-crafted furniture and design accessories, contemporary art and photography, and much more.

The 3-day exposition and sale will be held at the Palm Spring Convention Center on February 17-19, concurrently with the hugely popular Palm Springs Modernism Show benefiting Modernism Week. It will be open to the general public with a single ticket allowing entry to both it and the separate but adjacent Modernism Show & Sale. Admission is $20 and good for return entry all weekend.

The Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale is one of the premier events of Modernism Week, an 11-day celebration of mid-century modern architecture, design, and lifestyle which continues to flourish in Palm Springs since its heyday in the 1950s and 60s. The Modernism Show & Sale features 85 exhibitors from across the U.S. and Europe presenting vintage modern furniture, decorative and fine arts and drew over 10,000 attendees last year. Celebrating its 18th year in February, the event is produced by Dolphin Promotions, which organizes antiques, art and design shows across the nation including Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Sarasota, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

“We are so excited to introduce the Palm Springs Modern Design Expo to the already fantastic schedule of Modernism Week events,” states Rosemary Krieger, President of Dolphin Promotions, “and believe it will further enhance the experience of our Modernism Show exhibitors and attendees. It’s a perfect complement to the existing programming and will enable and encourage participation of new cutting- edge home design craftsmen and manufacturers who embrace a modern aesthetic.”

California Home+Design Magazine is a sponsoring media partner of the new event, which is also sponsored by Atomic Ranch, Modern and Palm Springs Life Magazines. For further information, please contact Dolphin Promotions at [email protected] or call 708-366-2710 or 954-202-1955.
