All About IIDEX 2015


Last week we announced that we’re attending IIDEX Canada 2015. But what is it, and why should you check it out?


IIDEX is Canada’s largest conference and expo for design and architecture. Everyone who’s anyone in the world of design needs to attend, whether a novice, professional or career switcher. Here are six reasons why you can’t miss IIDEX 2015.

  • Awesome Exhibitors – including MyKrd!

Loads of exhibitors will be available, from the fields of landscape, lighting, international, commercial and interior design, to name but a few categories! Check out the full list here.

  • Industry leaders speak to you directly

50 different speakers are attending IIDEX this year. They will be giving you industry insights on everything you need to know about the design world, fromlegal agreements in the design sector, to the importance of personal and corporate branding.

  • Killer Keynotes

This year’s keynotes include presentations on Biophilic Design – a method which seeks to create harmony between nature and built environments.  Make sure to also check out the State of the Industry discussion, covering what to expect from 2016 in terms of growth, challenges and opportunities with the design sector.

  • Canadian Premiere of ‘Inclusive Design’ Movie

Inclusive Design is a movie about how technology can help members of society who are considered to have disabilities. The Canadian premiere will be held at IIDEX. Check out the trailer below.

  • Canadian Architecture Award Of Excellence and Canadian Interiors Design Competition

Not one, but two awarding ceremonies will take place at IIDEX – one forarchitecture and one for interior design. Competition is always stiff within the design industry, and we at MyKrd can’t wait to see who will win.

  • Virtual Spaces Exhibition

ArchDaily and IIDEX have partnered to bring attendees a unique virtual reality experience. Two designs will be presented as part of IIDEX’s exhibition, with attendees being able to test the VR goggles for themselves. Check out thisvideo for a sample of what to expect.
