Designer Information Services (DIS) is a professional company that promotes building products directly to architects and specifiers. Founded in 1963, our firm has assisted hundreds of companies build brand awareness while securing specifier loyalty for their products. DIS helps to bridge the divide between manufacturers and the architectural community through personal, face-to-face contact in a dynamic, fun, interactive presentation.
DIS is based on the belief that nothing much happens until people talk to people. Reaching architects requires multiple points of contact; however, there are some challenges. The architectural marketplace consists of a large number of moderate sized offices, spread over an even larger geographic area. Architects, themselves, do not typically purchase building products, but they control (influence directly and/or indirectly) the purchase through their specifications. Finally, architects must maximize their billable hours meaning they can't and generally won't see every product rep coming through the door but they do see us.
