italy_panel.jpgHappy Business To You, a trade show in Pordenone, Italy, hosted members of the IDC board from February 12 to 16.

HBTY’s intent in hosting the IDC Board was to expose Canadian interior designers to new and innovative Italian products and IDC’s goal was to promote Canadian interior designers and to encourage Italian companies to participate in the 2013 International Pavilion at IIDEX Canada. The Board spent three days attending the trade show. Each board member met with 12 companies per day and participated in tours of showrooms and factories.

The Board also participated on a panel to educate trade show attendees and manufacturers about the Canadian market. The panel presentation, A Look at Canada – The Market, The Opportunities, The Vision, educated attendees about current and predicted market conditions, the sectors and provinces that are most active and what Canadian clients are looking for. Following the show, the board held its regularly scheduled board meeting.

IDC, HBTY and IIDEX look forward to seeking out future opportunities for collaboration between the Italian and Canadian design communities.
