Launched in 2004 under the original name of Design Vancouver, as recognition to the gap in the West Coast Design market, this event created a successful forum to present current, design forward products and services to consumers and trade professionals. Tracking its growing success the show was purchased in early 2007 by Chicago-based Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. (MMPI) and most recently by Informa Canada in 2012, one of the world’s leading trade and consumer show producers. Within its stable of other Canadian properties are the Interior Design Show Toronto, designjunction, One of a Kind Shows, IIDEX Neocon Canada, Construct Canada and BUILDEX. The event has since been re-branded as the Interior Design Show Vancouver – the West Coast version of the established Toronto based Interior Design Show Toronto. This association has successfully contributed to an increased exhibitor base, exciting special features, a broader speaker program, trade only times, and an ever expanding compliment of design experiences.
Annually the show continues to grow in size, importance and reputation and in 2015 welcomed over 36,000 visitors. IDS Vancouver 2016 will continue to showcase the best in international and local design underlining that Vancouver continues to be one of the strongest real estate and construction markets in North America.
IDS Vancouver attracts 36,000+ attendees over 3 1/2 days. This includes 5,500 guests to the The Party On Opening Night, 7,000 designers, architects, buyers, builders/developers and other industry professionals during trade day, and an additional 24,000 consumers interested in design.
7,000 interior designers, architects, product specifiers, builders/developers and hotel owners alongside other industry professionals are accredited to attend the trade day for free.
