In 1949, a group of student interior designers at the University of Manitoba formed the Society of Student Interior Designers (S.S.I.D.). The Society’s first objective was “to obtain Legislative recognition of Interior Designers in Manitoba and later in Canada.” As a result of the groundwork initiated by the S.S.I.D, an organization of professionals was formed; the Manitoba Institute of Interior Designers (M.I.I.D.). Shortly thereafter, members of the M.I.I.D group submited a bill to incorporate an Act cited as “the Interior Designers Act”. The professional organization name was revised for the passing of the Bill to the Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba (I.D.I.M).

Ten years ago when PIDIM Council created the Manitoba Design Exposition, I don't think anyone envisioned that the show would become the event that it is today. Our original vision to give back to the Resource Community and provide a venue where the design community - Industry and Design Professionals alike can come together has grown exponentially each year. That first year with 55 Exhibitors seems so long ago and with the decision this year to expand the exhibition floor to the South Centennial Ballroom at the Victoria Inn and Conference Center will provide space for up to 120 Exhibitors!!
