BDA Focus Group: May 2nd, Hollywood

Normally, I wouldn’t post this kind of stuff, but since I’m going to be speaking at Promax/BDA this summer, I figured I have an obligation to help out. Here’s a slightly edited chunk of an email I recently received:

“BDA is putting together a focus group that will take place on Tuesday, May 2 from 5:45 PM — 8:00 PM at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, 1755 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.

In addition to the focus group for BDA members, we are holding a second focus group that evening for junior designers who are not currently BDA members in order to learn what they might look for in a design trade association. That meeting will take place on the same evening from 8:15 to 9:45 PM at the Renaissance Hotel. If there is a junior member of your staff who you think might be interested in attending, please either forward this call or give that person’s contact information.

The group will be led by Steve Seidmon who comes to this endeavor with many years of experience leading media-related research.

If you would like to participate, please contact Linda Antwi at 310.789.1553 or”
