Registration Now Open for IIDEXCanada @ The Buildings Show

Published by Patrick Voisin, August 30, 2017.

IIDEXCanada @ The Buildings Show returns to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this November 29-30 for two days of networking and education. This year’s event offers a whole new level of interactivity and engagement in all areas of design. IIDEXCanada is about discovering current practice-related issues and areas of specialized learning encompassing everything from building codes and wellness to sustainability and lighting.

New to the show floor in 2017, IIDEXCanada introduces Boutique Design Pavilion, a partnership with the creative team behind BDNY and BDwest that focuses on hospitality design. Attendees can also take part in a hands-on prototyping workshop with Swedish design studio Form Us With Love at Prototypa. This year also marks the fifth anniversary of IIDEX Woodshop featuring prototypes made from urban wood, the return of THINK:Material and design-focused partnerships with several design schools.

This year, IIDEXCanada is excited to welcome notable design leaders such as accessibility advocate Rick Hansen; Architizer CEO and co-founder Marc Kushner; James Binning and Maria Lisogorskaya of the award-winning collective Assemble; architect Florian Idenburg and industrial designer John Löfgren. They will change the way you think about designing inclusive and accessible spaces; the role of crowdsourcing in influencing design; the relationship between art and design; and how industrial design can set the tone for interior projects.
