The Pacific platform for all things design

Welcome to IDSwest, the Pacific platform for all things design. This September, we are honoured to welcome individual designers, artists, makers and design-centric brands who have come together in Vancouver to showcase their current works, concepts and products.  In addition to experiencing installations and features, there will also be opportunities to hear from some of the design world’s most notable and talented personalities and connect with a long list of world-class designers that either call Vancouver home, or call on Vancouver for inspiration.

The Pacific Northwest has experienced a major design boom that has been especially embraced in Vancouver, where the design community has become vast and mighty. Now in its eleventh year, IDSwest has had the upmost privilege of seeing it grow, supporting its members and championing it the world over. Please join us in September as we celebrate the creative and collaborative energy of the West Coast.
