IDIBC holds this event to celebrate excellence in Interior Design and promote it's members throughout the province. The Interior Designers Institute of British Columbia is the self-regulatory professional body for interior design practitioners in British Columbia. IDIBC's mandate is to serve the interests of both the public and the interior design industry. It does so by registering interior designers (designation RID, "registered interior designer") who meet an established standard of education, experience, and competence, as well as conduct their practice meeting a prescribed code of ethics.

By identifying Registered Interior Designers, the public is able to make an informed choice for quality service. We seek to advance the profession through public and legal recognition and provide leadership and services to our members through continuing education programs, seminars and communication. External goals are to benefit public health, safety and welfare, contribute to the enhancement of the environment and increase the perception, appreciation and value of design in the community.
