International Market Centers (IMC) announced that the November installment of Las Vegas Design Center’s monthly “First Friday” program will address maximizing end-of-year profits for designers. Additionally, select LVDC and other World Market Center Las Vegas showrooms will participate in the Fall Sample Sale, running Nov. 11 to Nov. 13, 2020.
“The November First Friday topic is particularly relevant this year given the financial impact COVID has had,” said LVDC General Manager Cain Brodie. “Interior designers and related professionals will receive some great tips on many of the programs offered to small business, including Small Business Administration (SBA) loan benefits, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness, Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) loans and more.”
The November webinar, titled Say Goodbye to 2020 and Close Out Your Books for Maximum Profits, is presented by Lisa Jones of Campbell Jones Cohen CPAs. Subject matter will address the business side of design, diving into best practices, programs and other opportunities to maximize write offs and deductions as designers look to the end of the tax year. The session is from 10 to 11:30 a.m. (PT) on Friday, Nov. 6 and participants in this free session will receive 0.1 CEU credits. For more information and registration, go to
