For the seventh installation of Elements Showcase, to be held Aug. 19 and 20 at Skylight West in Manhattan, guests will be shown a lighter side of the highly edited design-focused trade show.
“We’re changing the story a little,” said Frederick Bouchardy, who cofounded Elements in 2011 with Jeff Lawson, owner of Jeff Lawson Associates Inc., and Ulrich Lang, owner of Ulrich Lang Fragrances. “This year is less about education and more about interacting, actually experiencing things.”
