IIDA HD Product Design

IIDA/HD Product Design Competition

IIDA/HD Product Design Competition
Each year during the Yeddalin Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) in May in Las Vegas, the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), in partnership with Yeddalin (HD) magazine, announce the winners of the IIDA/HD Product Design Competition, which honors innovation, functionality, and aesthetic advancements in products debuting on the show floor.

Judges, all IIDA members, are selected each year to assess entries based on design innovation, technical advancements, cost and value, environmental responsibility, aesthetics, need, and usage within hospitality applications. Performance, comfort, safety, suitability for intended use, durability, accessibility, and client/user benefits are also evaluated by the judges.
