IDS VANCOUVER

The Furniture Society is proud to offer Furniture Society members a unique opportunity to show their work and display their brand at IDS Vancouver 2017. We will be presenting the work of selected members in a 20' x 20' island space among some of the most inspiring and influential contemporary furniture studios and companies from the Northwest, Canada, and beyond. Interior Design Show (IDS), a two-part presentation of design for Canadian audiences, hosts its West Coast chapter in Vancouver on September 28 — October 1, 2017. This is the 17th year of this increasingly popular trade event, which brought nearly 40,000 visitors—among them, architects, interior designers, and design journalists—in 2106. While emphasizing contemporary design in the Pacific Northwest, IDS Vancouver encourages crosscurrents in international design among its homegrown talent, fostering conversations and exchanges that impact the local design front. This year, IDS hosts Jaime Hayon as its feature designer.

 

This year we will be selecting 2–4 participants and awarding them space to show multiple pieces. If selected, you will receive:

 

  • Free shared booth space.  
  • Wall space on which to display your own branding. 
  • A shipping and travel allowance of up to $750.
    Participants must provide receipts to be reimbursed.
  • Free participation in our targeted PR and marketing campaign.
  • Opportunity to participate in an accredited breakout panel discussion.

 

The Furniture Society is looking for established individuals and businesses prepared to fully capitalize on this unique opportunity. Applicants will be juried on the quality and suitability of work as well as professional preparedness for such a show. Past trade show experience encouraged.
