The 2019 Interior Design Show, Canada's premier showcase of new products, furniture, superstar designers and avant-garde concepts, will be held January 17-20 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This year, IDS Toronto (IDS19) celebrates the 'Power of Design' and is expanding and evolving its current offerings to include IDS Contract, a hyper-curated B2B trade-only exposition and conference focused on all verticals of design.
"Now in its 21st year, IDS19 will focus on design across all verticals, including workplace, hospitality, retail, education, public space and government, and extend its trade-focused offerings," stated Karen Kang, National Director, IDS Canada. "This year's theme, Power of Design, will showcase how design affects every aspect of the human experience and is so much more than interior design, architecture and product design."
IDS19 will feature a new floor plan designed to be dynamic and encourage more interaction with exhibitors, increase dwell time at the event and an enhance the overall experience for attendees. IDS has selected FIRM Architecture and Design, an emerging Brooklyn-based practice, which focuses on the intersection of architecture, urbanism and art to redesign the IDS show floor. In addition to the new floor plan and additional space needed for IDS Contract, IDS19 will move to the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, instead of the north building.
