Sept 22 - 25, 2022

Vancouver Convention Centre West

The Pacific Platform for All Things Design.

Launched in 2004 under the original name of Design Vancouver as recognition of the gap in the West Coast design market, our event has created a successful forum to present current, design-forward products and services to consumers and trade professionals. Tracking its growing success, the show was purchased in early 2007 by Chicago-based Merchandise Mart Properties Inc. (MMPI), and most recently in 2012 by Informa Canada, one of the world’s leading trade and consumer show producers. Within its stable of other Canadian properties are the Interior Design Show Toronto, designjunction, One of a Kind Show, Construct Canada, and BUILDEX.

The event has since been re-branded as the Interior Design Show Vancouver – the West Coast version of the established Toronto-based Interior Design Show Toronto. This association has successfully contributed to an increased exhibitor base, exciting special features, a broader speaker program, trade-only times, and an ever-expanding compliment of design experiences.

Annually, the show continues to grow in size, importance, and reputation. In 2019, we welcomed over 38,500+ visitors. IDS Vancouver 2022 will continue to showcase the best in international and local design, underlining the fact that Vancouver continues to be one of the strongest real estate and construction markets in North America.

The land on which IDS Vancouver takes place is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.


IDS Vancouver 2019 attracted 38,500+ attendees over 3.5 days. This included 7,050 guests to the Party On Opening Night; 7,500 designers, architects, buyers, builders/developers and other industry professionals during Trade Day; and an additional 24,000 consumers interested in design on the weekend.
