BC Wood will once again be ramping up its’ presence at the Interior Design Show West (IDS West) this coming fall, September 19th-22nd, 2013 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. In an effort to bring more attention to the growing strength of wood design and manufacturing in BC, BC Wood has partnered with the show organizers of IDS West to create a high profile “Design BC” pavilion. The pavilion will showcase BC Wood members and their products, everything from custom furniture and architectural millwork, to design-inspired finished products such as kitchen cabinets, doors, flooring, and paneling. The objective will be to feature the individual companies, drawing more traffic to the centrally located space. BC Wood is currently working with the IDS West show organizers to develop promotional strategies that will highlight the companies participating in the “Design BC” pavilion and promote the strength of the growing design sector in BC.

The show attracts 31,000 attendees over 3½ days. This includes 4,000 guests to the Opening Night Party, 7,000 designers, architects, buyers, builders/developers, and other industry professionals during trade day, and an additional 24,000 consumers interested in design.

Writers from The Vancouver Sun, Azure Magazine, Homes & Living, Western Living, Design Quarterly, House and Home Media, Georgia Straight, The Westender, Xtra West, the Globe & Mail, National Post, Global Television, City TV’s Breakfast Television, and many other outlets, attend and cover the IDS West event.

A total of 1200 square feet of exhibition space has been set aside for the “Design BC” pavilion, with BC Wood covering a portion of the hard costs for this sector wide display.
