IDS12 and blog podium

January 26, 2012

Off to Toronto today for a couple of days of interior design fabulousness!

Tonight I will be attending the IDS12 opening night party and preview with Deb of Purplefreesia Designs.

This is the biggest design party of the year in Toronto and the kick off to a weekend of everything interior design.

On Friday morning we will be at Blog Podium for a conversation on Blogs + Media, presented by ISD12 and sponsored by Delta and Olioboard.

A big thanks to Lindsay from Little House Blog and Jen from Rambling Renovators for organizing the event and for bring a whole lot of wonderful bloggers together to discuss blogging!

Here is the fabulous panel of speakers for the event:

  • Margot Austin, Senior Style Editor for House & Home Magazine
  • Kate Moore – CityLine Producer
  • Jennifer Flores – Published Blogger of Rambling Renovators, and Co-Founder of BlogPodium
  • Moderator – Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault, Cityline Expert
  • Kimberley Seldon – Editor in Chief for Dabble Magazine & Design Editor for Chatelaine Magazine

After Blog Podium we will spend some time at the IDS12 show for Trade Day. Trade Day is only on Friday and is for design professionals only. The show is open to the general public on Saturday and Sunday, so don’t miss out! If you go be prepared to be very design inspired and want to redesign your whole world!

Sounds exciting, no? Well, there is more! One more day of design fun!

Saturday Deb and I are attending the Canadian Design Bloggers Meet Up at Brasaii Restaurant & Lounge in Toronto. This meet up is the result of the hard work of Vie of the blog Verdigris Vie and Daniella of the blog Daniella Marie.

The amazing speakers for this event are:

  • Cassandra LaValle of the blog coco+kelley
  • Cameron MacNeil, Senior Design Editor for House and Home Magazine
  • Lisa Murphy, Online Director for House and Home Magazine

I’m really looking all the events and networking with other bloggers. It is definitely going to be a great long weekend full of exciting talks, new friends and wine!

Stay tuned for updates on all the events starting early next week!

  • Have some extra fun for me Tina! I really wanted to make it out to the Design Bloggers meetup but it conflicts with something else…I’ll definitely be at the next one though! Best wishes and safe driving (if you are driving)! Take lots and lots and lots of pictures…;)
