Join IDC for our third Destination DesignEx in Central Ontario

An alternative to tradeshows, DesignEx is a meet-and-greet event that is open to interior designers, decorators, architects and industry members. Using tabletops instead of booths, attendees are able to showcase new and popular products in an intimate setting allowing for effortless networking.

Held in locations across Canada, local DesignEx events are a step-in-the door to regional markets and a great way to gain exposure while generating new clients.

Destination DesignEx is held annually; it features a place that people will make a special trip to visit or a specialty workshop for designers and industry members and includes a reception following the CEUs and tabletop show.

IDC members are given priority for tabletop selection and for branding on all promotional materials. Once a table has been purchased, there is an opportunity to present a CEU to designers during the event. Please note the accredited session must be submitted to IDC for approval.

This show is sure to gather interior designers, architects, and facility managers from all over Ontario!

Do not miss this summer day filled with building new connections in Niagara. Tables are limited!
