Countdown to IIDEX

Here it comes again: IIDEX Canada, running at Toronto’s Direct Energy Centre Sept. 20-21. The country’s National Design + Architecture Exposition & Conference is a whole new ball game this year, with the involvement of Architecture Canada|RAIC, co-presenting the show with IDS (Interior Designers of Canada). The most notable new element is the Architecture Canada Expo, with over 100 industry suppliers displaying a wide array of architectural products.

Architectural Canada is just one of 10 expos that make up IIDEX Canada. Others include Light Canada, anchored by Candela, the Ottawa Light Art Exhibition; Textile Design, where the Textile Museum of Canada will preview its upcoming exhibition Marimekko, With Love; and Hospitality Canada, launching the 2nd annual enRoute Hotel Design Awards.

IIDEX’s biggest event/feature this year is Special Delivery, which will transform 18-wheeler truck interiors into site-specific, immersive installations created by local designers, architects and artists.

All this plus a brand-new International Pavilion; such intriguing attractions as Chair Connection, the YSmell Project, and Films by Design; and much more. We hope to see you there: be sure to stop by the Canadian Interiors booth.
