On September 26 and 27, the 29th annual IIDEX Canada show welcomed designers, architects, and developers to Toronto’s Direct Energy Centre.
Produced by Informa, the two-day event featured more than 350 exhibitors, six keynote presentations, and more than 80 seminars. The show is co-presented by Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) and Architecture Canada | RAIC.
At this year’s show, co-presenters IDC appointed eight new directors as well as distributed its Honours and Fellows awards.
“The show is a forum for our members from coast-to-coast to gather, see hundreds of products and services from all areas of design, and learn about the issues shaping our rapidly changing industry,” IDC’s CEO, Susan Wiggins, told Construction Canada Online.
New this year was the IIDEX Woodshop exhibit, which showcased wood prototypes making use of the city’s untapped ash resource. Additionally, a dozen other feature exhibitors included the Bunkie Company, a 9.8-m2 (106-sf) structure demonstrating how to maximize use of a small space.
