One of the wonderful things about IDS is that it’s a new show every year. That’s especially true for 2019.
The Interior Design Show is Canada’s design fair. Since the doors first opened in 1999, IDS has been visited by over 700,000 design professionals, design-savvy consumers and media; it has served as a design industry hub providing a unique and unrivalled business opportunity for thousands of design-driven businesses. Each year, world-renowned designers and architects participate as keynote speakers and create inspiring feature exhibits. Located in the city of Toronto, Canada’s economic engine, IDS provides an annual catalyst for millions of dollars spent on design, and has positioned Toronto as a frontrunner in the global design scene.
In/Visible Talks celebrates the art of design and creativity.
The creative process isn’t always a linear one and we think there’s much to be gained by hearing how others have navigated the rich and variegated landscape of people, ideas, deadlines, and passion. Our mission is to build community through conversation about the process, inspiration, and challenges behind the creative practice.
Why we do it.
In/Visible Talks came from our own personal desire to keep learning, to stay inspired, and to celebrate our genuine love of design.
Working in the creative industry for years, we’ve attended countless conferences and seminars on design. But we found many to be surface-level, leaving us wanting for more. More community, more vulnerability, more truth. In/Visible Talks was founded as a platform to explore the creative practice through this lens.
Over 6,000 game-changers gather every year to celebrate innovation and digital culture. We welcome all the competent founders, respected business experts, slick trendsetters, bold creatives, brainy techies – everyone who is forward-thinking. We thrive to stimulate all sorts of collaborations and dig deeper into the most relevant issues.
In 2019, we dive deeply into this world giving you the the most complete context of what’s happening around, taking you out of a box and inspiring to be a bold trailblazer yourself. We not only give away awards for the best Internet projects, but also party as mad during LOGOUT. And we invite you to join us!
