IDA 63rd Annual Conference & Tradeshow

The 63rd IDA Annual Conference & Tradeshow, aptly themed “AuthentiCITY,” will continue to advance inclusive city building discussions, and examine the role of professional place management in shaping prosperous districts that remain true to the essence of each place. The 2017 conference and tradeshow will be the place for practitioners to study best practices, explore new ideas, network, and share solutions in an updated conference design while gaining the tactics and knowledge necessary to transform cities into healthy and vibrant urban places.

“AuthentiCITY” will highlight Canada’s diverse culture, history, spirit, and the creativity of its people during Canada 150, the anniversary of the country’s Confederation. Attendees will experience the pride and energy that drove Winnipeg from good to great, creating a new vibrancy in the downtown and surrounding communities. Winnipeg, and its business districts, don’t simply embrace trends – they start them – making this city the ideal learning laboratory for districts of every size. Explore “AuthentiCITY” with IDA and leave inspired to truly make a difference in your city.
