IDS opening-night party

The opening-night party kicking off the 21st iteration of Informa Exhibitions’s Interior Design Show drew thousands of designers, exhibitors and scenesters to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre South Building on Jan. 17. New this year was an adjoining area, IDS Contract, a reboot of IIDEX (billed as Canada’s largest exposition and conference for the design and management of interior environments), originally a freestanding trade show and latterly bundled with the Buildings Show.
