About IDS Vancouver

Founded in 2004 by Jason Heard, IDS Vancouver has grown in size and in ambition at equal pace with the city it is so proud to support. Taking place once a year in September the IDS Vancouver design fair has grown to include diverse programing and workshops for youth, for students and for the design trade as well as collaborative installations and experiences both off site and on. Drawing attention to the region as a heavy hitting design destination, IDS Vancouver actively engages with and participates at other international fairs all year long as a way to profile the talent of the region and to source and stay informed with design internationally.
