PROpel is an interactive program and conference series created exclusively for emerging interior designers from all across the country. This program helps you to connect with the next generation of interior designers in Canada.

A select number of attendees get the chance to attend an intimate, two-day leadership conference where they spend time with sponsors, learn about their brands and products, network and build connections.

This is an exceptional opportunity to be in a room with emerging leaders in the interior design industry, as well as IDC Board members and senior designers - all of whom are purchasers of your products/services. Your participation in PROpel will not only help you plan for the future, but will allow you to discover new clients and trends.

Can you afford not to be there?

It's thanks to PROpel that I have so much confidence in my work and in my future as a designer!"
