This year we are celebrating the 26 anniversary of Hong Kong Interior Design Association. Ever since its inception, HKIDA has served as a platform to strengthen the communication between the profession and members of the public, and has established overwhelming influence in the region. The association is actively not only regionally, but also in the international arena, in engaging in learning and knowledge exchange activities with various interior design associations around the world such as The Asia Pacific Space Designer’s Alliance (APSDA) and The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI). At the same time, we also nurture young design talents by providing support and platform to showcase their works. I have served as the vice chairman of the association for the past 6 years, and I am much honored to be elected its chairman this year. I thank you for the opportunity and I’m grateful that HKIDA members have put their trust in me.
We will maintain and adhere to our mission and vision as always. Internally, we will continue to promote professional standards and ethics in the practice of interior design by the issuance of certificate for HKIDA Certified Interior Designer. Externally, we will continue our role as a gateway to enhance our partnerships and collaborations with other international interior design organizations. This year also marks the 25 anniversary of Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards (APIDA). To commemorate this milestone, we will organize a series of exciting activities and events, so please stay tuned.
Looking into the future, HKIDA looks forward to the continuous support and participation from our executive committees, designers, members of the public as well as our friends. Together with our fellow interior designers, we will strive to create a better future for the profession as well as the general public.
I wish all of your dreams will come true!

A Solemn Declaration from HKIDA
The Hong Kong Interior Design Association has received many inquiries of late regarding the Hong Kong Indoor Designer Association (website：www.ida168.hk) and whether this association is the same as the Hong Kong Interior Design Association. Many of our members have even received email invitations to join this association. Due to the fact that this association has a similar name as the Hong Kong Interior Design Association in both Chinese and English, and its abbreviation in English is the same as our association, many people have the mistaken impression that the two associations are the same.
The Hong Kong Interior Design Association hereby solemnly declares that it has no relationship whatsoever with the Hong Kong Indoor Designer Association, and the two associations are not the same.
For further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or by telephone at (852)2866 2039.
