About GUIDE For Business

GUIDE (Gida Uno Ile Design Exhibition) is an annual event organized by the Interior Designers Association of Nigeria (IDAN) and it was created to be the foremost Interior Design Furniture and Lifestyle exhibition in Nigeria.
Over the years, GUIDE has evolved into more than just a trade exhibition. It is the flagship event designed to promote interior design, product design, art, culture, professional business practice and career development.
The unique name was invented from the word “HOME” in 3 Predominant languages in Nigeria: Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba respectively

ABOUT OUR THEME THIS YEAR

The theme of this year’s GUIDE- Business and Career Development Tools is ‘FREEDOM TO DESIGN’.

Most design professionals entered into the industry because of their passion to design but instead they are weighed down and clogged with other things that take their time and energy away from being creative. Our focus this year is finding ways to free your mind to do more creative projects and giving you the freedom to work from anywhere. Our drive is your physical location and responsibilities as a business owner and manger should not limit your creativity.

‘FREEDOM OF MIND AND PLACE’
