The Summit will also include curated walking tours through Regent Park – a thriving area that embraced migration to build a successful, inclusive, and evolving community. You and your fellow attendees, including interior designers and peers from other design and business sectors, will participate in thought-provoking discussions seeking creative and practical solutions to improve communities throughout North America.

Through provocative programming and collaboration, designers’ will expand their knowledge base while helping create ideas to foster culturally diverse, highly functioning, and economically stable communities.
