IDC DesignEx Shows

DesignEx trade shows are a great alternative to regular trade shows. They are cost-effective, intimate events where instead of a booth companies are given a table top to showcase their newest or most popular products to qualified professionals and specifiers, including interior designers, architects and others from the industry. 

These events typically garner approximately 88% of the local Registered interior designers and are a great way for you to gain exposure and generate new clients. This popular program is held 12 times annually with shows in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
