2022 IDC Design Symposium

Legacy of Design: Past, Present, and Future

This year Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) celebrates 50 years as the national advocacy association for interior designers in Canada.

IDC invites members and industry leaders across Canada and internationally to learn, engage, and network at the 2022 IDC Design Symposium – Legacy of Design: Past, Present, and Future, which will held in person on Oct. 19 and 20, 2022 at Cosentino City Toronto.

The two-day event features a program of in-depth panels, inspiring keynote presentations, the PROpel Emerging Leaders program, and an award presentation, featuring the prestigious Value of Design Awards (VODA). This year we learn from the change-makers, reflect on the issues facing designers today, and seek solutions for a better future for the next generations of interior designers.
