Thank you from IDS Vancouver

Thank you from IDS Vancouver


Thank you to everyone that attended and participated in IDS Vancouver 2016! We were thrilled to celebrate the Pacific Platform for All Things Design with you this year. An exciting fair, with tremendous energy, it confirmed what we already knew; the West’s design community is thriving and like no other! IDS Vancouver 2016 was made possible by a wonderful group of sponsors and media partners. We were honoured to collaborate with a talented group of designers on this year’s features and the installations, creativity and execution were bar none. It was another record-breaking year with over 37,000 industry and consumer attendees and over 250+ exhibitors. Thank you all for supporting design in the west!

We are already underway with our plans for next year’s fair which will be taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West from September 28 – October 1st, 2017.
