IRDC is for executive store planners, visual merchandisers, retail designers and sponsors only. If you are a manufacturer or supplier, you must be a sponsor to attend. Please visit the Sponsorship Opportunities page for more information.

We reserve the right to deny admittance to non-qualified individuals. A manufacturer/supplier is anyone who seeks a business-to-business relationship (client, partner, etc.) with retailers. For example, if your company has design capabilities, but you also manufacture, install and implement the items for the spaces you design, you are considered a manufacturer/supplier and cannot attend IRDC. If retail design is your primary business and responsibility, you qualify as an attendee. If printing graphics, for example, is a small portion of that design business, you won’t automatically be disqualified. In cases such as this, admission is granted at IRDC’s discretion.

If you have questions about your retailer/non-retailer/sponsor status, please contact us before you make travel plans for this event. IRDC makes every effort to notify non-qualified individuals who register in error as soon as possible.


If you must cancel for any reason, please notify us via email at Cancellations received prior to August 30, 2019 will receive a full refund less a $100 cancellation fee. Refunds will not be given after August 30, 2019, but the registration may be transferred to a colleague. Refunds will not be issued for no-shows.
