The first ever DesignEx in Ottawa

Published by Patrick Voisin, November 02, 2016.

We are very happy to announce that our first ever DesignEx in Ottawa was a smashing success. Our Manager of Events and Tradeshows, Emily-Rose Smegal had this to say about the event: “DesignEx Ottawa was just a great day! Attendees, presenters and exhibitors were in top form, and the room was buzzing! I’m proud to have helped bring this event to the Ottawa design community.”

The event was very well received by members and attendees! See what they had to say below.

“As a first time exhibitor in such an interior design focused tradeshow in Ottawa, I was impressed by the number of people who came by. It was an excellent opportunity to network. There was a great relaxed atmosphere and the venue was a good location, the catering was excellent. We felt welcome and the administrative and logistics support was flawless. I am looking forward the next edition, bigger and bolder!”
- Isabelle Champagne, Architectural Sales Manager at ROCKFON


“The DesignEx Ottawa was a wonderful experience for both emerging professionals and industry members. Events such as this help build valuable relationships as well as help prepare Designers to evolve; preparing them to meet the ever-changing conditions within the industry. The DesignEx is an ideal means to stay connected in your community, to get involved, to help shape the future of the interior design profession and to get inspired.”
