Urban Encounters

The 2019 Urban Encounters Schedule is:

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - Edmonton Expo Centre, Northlands Park, Edmonton

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 - BMO Centre Stampede Park, Calgary

Urban Encounters is a table top trade show held in two locations (Edmonton and Calgary).  The main focus is two-fold.  Firstly, it is held to showcase the latest products and services for commercial and residential suppliers to the Alberta Interior Design community.  Secondly, it is an opportunity to bring the design and supply community together in an informal, social atmosphere to help in the establishment of mutually beneficial client-vendor relationships.

  • Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres
  • Door prizes
  • A chance to meet industry suppliers and resource specialists
  • An opportunity to view new and established product lines
  • A relaxed social setting
  • A non-IDCEC credit for members who attend the event
