IDS brings together over 53,000 of the world’s leading products, companies, and change-makers to inspire and transform the future of design.
Held every January for 4 days, IDS celebrates and promotes design in Canada and across the world through a compelling showcase of new products, features, installations, prototypes, and big ideas. From emerging local designers to international legacy brands, we bring together the best in design and the thought leaders of both today and tomorrow. Over the last two decades, design has shifted from the aesthetics of style to a powerful tool for change. This year, IDS looks back at its history and ahead to its future. Hindsight may be 20/20, but at IDS, foresight is our focus.
