ID Connections

IIDEX/NeoCon Canada wraps up another successful show

Published by Julia Salerno, October 05, 2010.

Canada's design event of the year came to a close September 25. For four days, IIDEX/NeoCon Canada showcased the latest products, hottest speakers and awards ceremonies. This year's attendance topped 15,000 with an increase in attendance from across Canada, reflecting the great commitment IIDEX has received from IDC members since the transfer of ownership from ARIDO to IDC. Attendees heard insightful talks from four international keynote speakers covering business, the environment, innovation and design, as well as more than 3,000 seminar tickets were sold.

Green Building Festival
The return of the Green Building Festival to IIDEX was a great success, bringing the best and brightest "green" minds together to share the latest information from the fields of sustainable design, architecture, and urban planning with Toronto's leading design and building professionals. These professionals are committed to transforming the built environment by creating sustainable and effective places to live, work and play.

Light Canada Expo & Conference
Canada's largest lighting Expo and Conference wowed attendees with over 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest lighting and lamps for commercial, institutional and residential applications, plus the latest in LED lighting. Light Canada also presented a full stream of lighting seminars with international speakers and a special LED feature installation from Traxon Technologies | e:cue Lighting Control in collaboration with Lighting Nelson and Garrett.
