Winners of the ANDYZ awards, which highlight and celebrate noteworthy projects by interior designers, architects and design students in 10 interior design categories, will be recognized during the Summer 2021 Las Vegas Market, running Aug. 22 – Aug. 26, 2021.
“Las Vegas Design Center and Las Vegas Market are delighted to partner with ASID again to offer the ANDYZ awards for the seventh straight year,” said Cain Brodie, general manager of LVDC. “Interior designers are vital to our business and the ANDYZ awards give us a platform to celebrate and showcase their creativity and talent.
