ABOUT PAVE'S ANNUAL EVENTS
Each year PAVE holds two signature events- the Bash and the Gala. These events are designed to inspire students and professionals alike, raise funds for PAVE programs, showcase the work of young talent and celebrate everything new and exciting in the worlds of retail design, retail planning and visual merchandising.
These celebrations bring together hundreds of the leading players in the worlds of retail and design, offering the talent of tomorrow the opportunity to network with the giants of today. There's cocktails, there's music and there’s delicious food! PAVE's events are symbolic of investment in the future, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to be used to support the next generation of designers. We encourage you to explore the PAVE events of the past and get involved with those still to come.
Proceeds benefit PAVE educational programs. PAVE, The Planning and Visual Education Partnership, is a 501(C)(3) charitable organization.

ABOUT PAVE'S VIRTUAL EVENTS
Since 1992 it has been our mission to connect students, educators and professionals who support the retail industry in a vibrant, meaningful and mentoring format. This vital connection encourages industry dialogue and the enrichment of curricula.
The year 2020 gave us an opportunity to revisit a long time goal and launch a series of virtual learning events know as "PAVE Coffee Chats" and "PAVE Fireside Chats." Working in partnership with our education and industry partners, we are continuing to develop programs to supplement current course content and help bring today’s virtual classrooms the same wonder, engagement and excitement felt by students in traditional classes and studios.
While the goal was to create something fun and exciting for students, many educators and industry professionals find PAVE's Chats to be a beneficial tool and "continuing education" opportunity.
If you have a suggestion for a PAVE Chat topic or would like to participate as a speaker or panelist, please contact us at email@example.com
