IDC Design Symposium VODA Trophies Sponsorship

IDC’s national Value of Design Awards (VODA) showcase the positive human and business impact that the design process can generate for the people and companies who hire a professional interior designer. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate the value inherent in design for the client; to illustrate the positive impact of design on the users of the spaces; and to provide a national platform for Canadian interior design projects within Canada and around the world.

This program brings together interior designer from across Canada to celebrate excellence in the profession. As a sponsor, you’ll gain exposure to and network with influential professionals and design decision-makers at this unique event, charged with energy, positivity, and inspiration.

These awards take into consideration the design process including framing of the design challenge, the research used to identify business drivers, the inspiration for the selected design direction, and the steps for implementation towards a realized solution. To be innovative, the solution must address a business and/or human challenge and demonstrate how the design provides a benefit to the client’s organization.

This event brings together elite interior design professionals from across the country, including IDC's national board of directors, provincial leaders and national representatives. The invitation is extended to over 5,000 IDC members with many design firms participating!
