On November 30, 2016, Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) will celebrate a decade of Leaders Breakfasts in Canada. On this special 10th anniversary, IDC and IIDA will present the 2016 IDC/IIDA Leadership Award of Excellence posthumously to design enthusiast and advocate, Matthew Searle.

Launched as a single event in 1989 and expanded into an annual series, the IDC/IIDA Leaders Breakfast has become an iconic event for interior design professionals across North America. Industry members, don't miss out on sponsorship opportunities for this event and be sure to get your table of 10 now! Individual tickets are also available.

The keynote address will be delivered by entrepreneur and philanthropist George Butterfield who has dedicated his life to the intersections between art, culture, business development and leadership and will speak on these topics.
