The Interior Designers Association of Nigeria (IDAN)’s event planning committee is currently putting together her 2nd annual interior design exhibition; GUIDE.
GUIDE (Gida Uno Ile Design Exhibition) was coined 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 and showcasing our contributions to the society.
GUIDE 2014 is scheduled to take place on May 9th (Private Viewing) and May 10th & 11st 2014 for the General Exhibition at Eko Hotel Convention Centre V/I, Lagos, Nigeria
