PROpel is a national competition created exclusively for emerging leaders, providing the opportunity for engagement in discussions and connections with influential representatives in the interior design community. This year, the opportunity to engage and connect with designers in the industry will look a little different in light of the effects of the global pandemic. Instead, each participant will be announced as part of a promotional series on a weekly basis with a short profile published across IDC’s social media platforms, newsletters and honoured at the IDC Awards Celebration on September 23, 2020.
Congratulations to all 2020 Emerging Leaders Program participants!
“Design can have a positive impact on an economic, social, and environmental level. Design is truly valuable in that it takes into account the past, present, and future. It is based on historic precedent, environmental design research, social and cultural influences and functional needs.”
