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
GUIDE was set up to orient the public about Interior Architecture, Interior /Product Design and Decoration, to enhance knowledge about the profession while encouraging co-operation between design professionals.
GUIDE (Product and Design Exhibition) was initiated in 2013 as the flagship event to showcase and promote IDAN members. Since its inception, GUIDE has mostly been product focused with designers, consultants and service providers members feeling left out. As a multi faceted organization and the voice of the interior design professionals, it is important for IDAN to provide appropriate platforms for all categories of members; Manufacturers, Resellers, Design Consultants and even Student Members. This year we wish to introduce a new segment focused on the Service Providers and Design Professionals in the industry.
GUIDE- Business and Career Development Tools is a Two (2) day event focused on the design professionals that make the project happen and the service providers that work behind the scenes. These people are the Interior Designers, Interior Architects, Project Mangers, Quantity Surveyors, Color Consultants, Art Consultants/ Buyers, Visual Merchandisers and Engineers. GUIDE for Business is a platform for established, as well as aspiring design professionals to network with other service providers and educate themselves on the development tools they need for their careers and businesses.
