Last night we attended the opening event for IDS West at the new Vancouver Convention Centre. The new location is the perfect backdrop and really elevates this event to something on par with Toronto or New York. The exhibitors all did an impressive job with their presentations – the overall effect was stylish and very sophisticated.
Some of the great designers showcasing their work also have their product available at Provide, including Christian Woo, Martha Sturdy, John Ross Designs, MTH Woodworks and Catherine Regehr who collaborated with Brent Comber. It was great to see some new designs from them and we hope to have them in our store soon.
It was also and opportunity for us to talk and reconnect with people in the industry that we don't normally see. For instance, we stopped in at the Cross's booth and where blown away by their creativity, warmth and good humour. Great job guys!
