In partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs & International Trade, 15 members who are interested in expanding their business into South America will visit Santiago, Chile and Sao Paolo, Brazil.  Meetings will be organized with Canadian Trade Officers and local developers. Site visits will be planned to learn about South American design.

IDC and IIDEX are organizing a Canadian Pavilion of manufacturers and suppliers at Salone Internationale del Mobilia in Milan, Italy.  Alongside the pavilion we are inviting interior designers who are interested in experiencing the world's largest international furniture fair and offsite events in Tortona to attend.  Experience a week of design like none other.  At this event, you will have a chance to market your firm to the many visitors to the international pavilion.
