The Interior Design Show is Canada’s premier showcase for new products, furniture, designers and cutting-edge concepts from Canada, North America and beyond.
Celebrating its expanded format at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, IDS will feature hundreds of local and international exhibitors.
This year also marks the first time that IDS is co-located with IDS Contract (formerly IIDEX) and the additional space needed to accommodate the larger event means it will occupy the south building instead of the north building of the convention centre.
“Now in its 21st year, IDS19 will focus on design across all verticals, including workplace, hospitality, retail, education, public space and government, and extend its trade-focused offerings,” Karen Kang, National Director, IDS Canada.
“This year’s theme, Power of Design, will showcase how design affects every aspect of the human experience and is so much more than interior design, architecture and product design.”
IDS Contract — IDS Contract will bring an additional 100+ exhibitors and a number of new feature areas aimed at B2B trade professionals. With the addition of IDS Contract, IDS is positioning itself as a hybrid event that caters to both trade construction and design professionals and a design savvy, affluent consumer audience. The conference program will consist of 60 sessions including keynote speakers, fireside chats, seminars and workshops. This exciting expansion of the brand means that IDS will include a section of the show floor dedicated to trade-only attendees for two days, plus the main exhibit hall that is open to both trade and public for 3.5 days.
