Event opportunities

Sponsorship is an effective way to increase brand recognition and show support for the interior design profession and to the Association. IDC has various sponsorship opportunities available throughout the year to help you gain more exposure and market your company to the interior design community. These opportunities typically occur at the provincial level and are most suited to smaller local suppliers and the manufacturing community. Visit this page frequently to view upcoming sponsorship opportunities. For upcoming IDC event details, visit our current opportunities below.

DesignEx Forum + Function will provide sponsors with the opportunity to network with local industry members, and to showcase their products. The guest list will include interior designers, architects, engineers, technologists, contractors, project managers, facility managers, and others working in the design and construction industry. 

We hope you will join us again for an incredible day of networking and education at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland. This year’s show boasts a new schedule, prioritizing the opportunity for seminar attendees, industry members, and exhibitors to meet and explore each others’ work.

DesignEx trade shows are cost-effective, intimate events where instead of a booth, companies are given a table top to showcase their newest or most popular products to qualified professionals and specifiers, including interior designers, architects and others from the industry.

Do not miss this opportunity to build new connections in St. John’s market. Tables are limited!
