The 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 Breakfast cultivates connections between noteworthy industry leaders and the local design community while it celebrates design innovation. Each chosen host city organizes a breakfast that 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. Honorees receive the coveted Leadership of Excellence Award and a special edition Charles and Ray Eames stool awarded by Herman Miller. Currently, Leaders Breakfast has grown to include eight host cities across the United States and Canada, welcoming up to 600 attendees at each location.

History: Design, Leadership, Community

Launched in New York in 1989 by Jeannie Bochette of Steelcase, the IIDA Leaders Breakfast series began as a single event. The goal of the event was to introduce IIDA to the business world as a leading association of Commercial Interior Design and to inform IIDA Members about major economic issues affecting them and their clients. The event established a forum where IIDA Members and their clients could participate and network with peers. In 2007, with the help of the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), Leaders Breakfast expanded internationally to Canada.
