New For Professionals:
This year the IDS Pro, IDS Contract and IDS Conference were introduced. IDS Pro is two full professional trade days to advance careers. IDS Contract is a curated trade-only exposition focused on innovative products and services on verticals of design in areas such as workplace, healthcare, hospitality, retail, education, public space and government. The IDS Conference is a two day symposium that focuses on four specific verticals: Diversity & Talent, Future Cities, Experience and Technology.
Of the many displays, talks, presentations, and training, here’s what we found interesting:
Opening Night Party at IDS 2019:
What a great party!! The floor was buzzing with over 5,000 guests, 185 media including Torontoartsandevents. Top Canadian attended. Patrons took in the design inspiration, danced to music by Performance by Miguel Migs Featuring Lisa Shaw., and sampled food from the best restaurants Toronto has to offer. A portion of the Opening Night Party Tickets goes to Habitat for Humanity GTA.
