Based on last years’ experience, the Index-Design team will present its second edition of the Circuit Index-Design, which will take place the 16th and 17th of September, in Montreal. After having caught the attention of the industry’s professionals in September 2014, the Circuit will prolong the experience for two days. Principally destined for the design professionals, this event offers multiple accredited conferences and panoply of new releases, as well as permitting for informal meetings between the people of the scene.
The Circuit is the occasion to celebrate design in a festive ambiance all the while collecting useful information for landscaping projects currently taking place or in the near future.
Each official address will let creativity have free reign in the style of presenting its products and culture. All day long, the activities, conceptual installations, new products and conferences will highlight the visits.
Wednesday, September 16th, the participants will be invited to attend certain exhibition halls in the four corners of the city, where punctual activities will take place like private conferences and special workshops. Certain activities will be open to the public, while others will be by invitation only.
