at IDS Vancouver

September 21–24, 2023

Vancouver, British Columbia

GRAY Studios is a media destination on the show floor of IDS Vancouver—Canada’s international interior design show—where some of the buzziest, high-energy programming occurs. 

This interactive space consists of two recording studios: Canary and Dove. Throughout the show, GRAY will host our own programming and open it up to others for meetings and/or content creation.
