IIDA is committed to keeping our community healthy and safe, and in the interest of public health, spring 2020 Leaders Breakfast events have been postponed. IIDA Headquarters and our chapters will provide updates as they become available.

 

About

 
IIDA Leaders Breakfast is an annual international event series that celebrates design’s importance in the global marketplace by honoring the people who are both the legacy and future of design. The event was started in 1989 by the IIDA New York Chapter and was expanded in 2001 into an international series by IIDA Headquarters.  
 
Each chosen host city features a renowned keynote speaker to provoke and encourage new ideas and recognizes one city-selected honoree who has made significant contributions to the design industry. In addition to a morning of inspirational presentations, attendees meet, mingle, and network with designers, architects, and other industry professionals. 
 
Over 30,000 professionals have attended Leaders Breakfast, where a veritable collection of over 85 keynote speakers have spoken, from the director of the MIT Media Laboratory to Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter, and 125 interior design leaders have been honored.
