“IDS Vancouver has found a most ideal partner in the design forward, internationally
recognized L A M P event. We couldn’t be more pleased to support the Gala and

“I noticed that most designers are now using LEDs in their designs, moving away from
traditional bulbs, which is important because lighting designers should always be
thinking about the future of design and innovation—they should be the ones leading in
the industry, ”
— Jamie Derringer of Design Milk.
