The Party Gift Bag
It’s not a party without a goodies bag! Be one of the first 2,500 people through the doors to receive The Party Gift Bag, a custom designed canvas tote exclusive to IDS Vancouver 2017. The doors open at 7 pm – arrive early to get your hands on a limited edition and highly coveted tote created by three celebrated design studios: Electric Coffin of Seattle, WA (shown here); Wit & Delight x Hygge & West of St. Paul, MN; and Matteo Cibic of Milan, Italy.
It gets even better! If a limited edition, exclusive canvas tote isn’t enough, each of the 2500 Party Gift Bags has a secret prize inside, and not just any prize either. IDS Vancouver, Inform Interiors and Intracorp have come together with the top brands in contemporary furniture and lighting to create Inform Favourites: The Party Gift Bag.
The first 2,500 through the doors will get a chance to win over 100 contemporary pieces of furniture and design accessories, including a Bocci 28.3 pendant, a Menu Echasse Vase, and a BB Italia Hive Coffee Table (shown here). Make sure to arrive early – last year’s totes were all gone in the first hour!
The Official Beer and Watering Hole of IDS Vancouver 2017 is Strathcona Beer, a local brewing company proudly located in the heart of Strathcona, Vancouver’s oldest and most diverse commercial and residential neighbourhood. The owners’ collective interests in art, music, skateboarding and design have influenced all aspects of the brand as they strive to offer customers a collaborative community space where great beer, fresh locally sourced food and good friends come together.
