Dine by Design at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada

Published by Julia Salerno, July 29, 2011.

Dine by Design will be a feast for the eyes! This all-new event will give designers the chance to recreate their restaurant design at the heart of the IIDEX/NeoCon Canada tradeshow floor and gain maximum exposure with key restaurateurs, hoteliers and other industry end-users. Plus, featured restaurants will serve a fixed price dinner, giving IIDEX attendees the chance to dine with the designer and learn more about the details of their restaurant design over dinner. These Dine by Design dinners - taking place on Thursday, September 22 - promise to be a great networking opportunity for designers and hospitality industry members alike.

For members wishing to feature their restaurant design at IIDEX:

As a participant, you will be provided with a 5' by 10' exhibit space in a branded area on the IIDEX tradeshow floor. This space will include:
• 5' deep by 10' wide by 8' high
• white painted plywood walls
• cement floor
• shared electrical
• booth signage


The rest is up to you! Bring in the tables, chairs, wallcoverings, flooring, lighting and accessories to make up a replica of a table in one of the restaurants you've designed. This is a great opportunity to partner with the manufacturers of the products used in your original design, allowing them to showcase their unique products and a unique space to all attendees. Cost to participate: $1,000.
