The Pacific Northwest has experienced a major design boom that has been especially embraced in Vancouver, where the design community has become vast and mighty. Now in its fourteenth year, IDS Vancouver has had the utmost privilege of seeing it grow, supporting its members and championing it the world over. “Please join us in September as we celebrate the creative and collaborative energy of the West Coast,” the event’s website explains.

Billed as “the Pacific platform for all things design,” the annual IDS Vancouver is a premier showcase of new products and furniture, superstar designers and avant-garde concepts from North America and beyond. This year’s 14th anniversary show will take place from September 20-23. The main event kicks off on Thursday, September 20 with the popular Opening Night Party and runs until Sunday, September 23 at the world-famous Vancouver Convention Centre West.
“We are honoured to welcome individual designers, artists, makers and design-centric brands who have come together in Vancouver to showcase their current works, concepts and products. In addition to experiencing installations and features, there will also be opportunities to hear from some of the design world’s most notable and talented personalities and connect with a long list of world-class designers that either call Vancouver home, or call on Vancouver for inspiration,” reads the official IDS Vancouver website.
Ahead of this year’s show, a full schedule of events has been published on the IDS Vancouver website, along with a comprehensive list of speakers, exhibitors, and special features. This year, globally renowned designer Karim Rashid will be a keynote speaker.
