  • “Design Mission India is very useful and a first of its kind event in India. You get to meet the best professionals of the industry all in one space together. Interestingly, there was also a speed dating kind of format to get to know the people from the industry that you don’t know. The format is quite open friendly and very adaptable in getting business done and am sure the results speak for themselves. I personally had the opportunity to meet a number of developers and suppliers who I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet with, making the whole event very successful for me.”

  • “I was really very impressed with the quality of the delegates. This was not like a regular conference with presentations and long speeches, but was solely focussed on bringing together the Developers, Owners with the Solution Providers. This event helps in delivering what the Developers and Owners are looking for on their projects. They get exactly what they need from each other .I would like to be here for the next edition as well.”

  • “Design Mission India was very pleasantly surprising and surely surpassed my expectations. The format and the way it was conducted, was very good. I got to meet a lot of quality vendors and other key people of the industry. Team IDE is very proactive and a dynamic set of people making things happen right on time. The whole event is very professionally handled. I’m very impressed with Design Mission India.”

  • “Firstly, thank you very much for inviting me to this platform as it was very fruitful to me and our organisation. I had the opportunity to meet with lots of interesting people and exchanged great ideas and contacts with them. The meetings with suppliers from different categories were very useful to us as we are looking to work with them for our on-going and future projects. We developed business ties with many companies here who we will potentially be working with. We are definitely attending next year!”

  • “The initiative held in Mumbai was an excellent concept which helped us reach out to many suppliers and have business meetings with them over a span of two days. The co-ordination from the team was very good which made the atmosphere appropriate to talk about business opportunities. Best of Luck for the future summits!”

  • “I was very impressed and satisfied with the organisation of this event. This event is very different compared to the regular seminars which have lots of boring speeches. But here, there were only a few but important presentations and more interactive sessions with buyers and suppliers. I had the opportunity to explore new products for immediate requirements in our projects. We hope to work with IDE for different initiatives in different parts of the world.”

  • “This platform was very beneficial and fruitful as we had the chance to meet all the right contacts and decision makers. I am surprised mainly by how you have managed to bring together all these important people under one roof. I was able to express my thoughts and ideas and give my message to things that really matter amongst the Real Estate industry. I really like the format and the fact that decision makers are matched by their needs to suppliers looking to meet with them. This is an excellent idea! Bringing in people who are important with big time projects is something our industry needs. I support this initiative and thank you for inviting me.”

  • “It’s a good and innovative idea that IDE made happen. A direct interaction between the buyers and the suppliers was excellent, where both can work at their best and increase productivity. It’s quite beneficial from the traditional fairs and exhibitions. We have attended two events organized by IDE and they are going in the right direction.”

  • “It is always difficult to gather the key players who set the agenda in a dynamic market. Turkey Design Mission managed to bring together that high calibre professional business crowd who enjoyed the synergy and interaction at its best.”

  • “The simulation session was excellent, a very well planned and organised summit. I met a lot of suppliers whom I have requested for mock ups and with a few vendors we are at the negotiation stage. I would like to meet more solution providers in the future summits of IDE.”

  • “A very good place to network, where the projects Owners, Consultants and Designers meet with the solution providers at the same table. This is very new concept that I have come across. The major advantage is being directly in front of your targeted audience and I appreciate team IDE for getting Design Mission to Qatar. Qatar being so small, it is hard for us to meet all our customers ,but team IDE made it very easy for us and hats off to their effort.This is one of the best initiatives I have seen in recent times.”

  • “DMI makes this our 3rd time working with IDE. It is a great platform to showcase one’s products and interact with the industry leaders. The good part is the IDE team who have done a fantastic job by bringing in buyers with similar requirements and systematically organising an event like this, especially the one-to-one interactions with the buyers. I wish Team IDE good luck and I look forward to many more such events.”

  • “DMI has been the first event in India for us. We met a lot of potential buyers between the 2 days. We got a clear idea of the projects they were working on in India and their requirements. The best part of the initiatives was the combination of all the stakeholders from the industry under one roof. It was a very successful event for us and we would be glad to participate in the future editions as well.”

  • “The overall impression is that IDE pulled it off! You managed to bring buyers to the party and that’s no small achievement in itself in Morocco or anywhere in Africa. You promised 20 meetings and I believe I had 22 in total, most of which were directly relevant to our business, so from that perspective alone it was a success. Well done and thank you very much. On a personal level, I think you guys have worked very hard to pull this summit together and have been very dynamic and friendly so it’s been a pleasure to work with you.”

  • “This being our first time with IDE in Istanbul it was really great to have this kind of industry come together. We have already worked with Mandarin Oriental and Ritz-Carlton but we also met with so many new and interesting projects, Architects and Developers. We are in talks and we may have good projects to work with in the future. Meeting with so many people in Istanbul was a good experience. We are very happy to be here and are happy with the results.”

  • “The concept of having face to face business meeting with the final decision makers of upcoming and on-going hospitality projects who have an immediate requirement in our product lines is a good idea. Do keep us updated about the upcoming summits.”

  • “I am quite surprised about the one to one meetings as we were a bit scared about the time allotted but it turned out to be fruitful.It was a great concept and we met the right people under one roof. It was a great chance for us to get introduced to some of the key people from top projects.We already received a bill of quantity for an ongoing project. One of the guests was so interested with our products that we have to submit the prices by the end of the week.So I am very happy with the outcome of the event! ”

  • “The format and the agenda of the conference sessions were excellent and the entire experience was different from the usual exhibitions. The entire summit was professionally organised and timed to precision. We are glad to be partnered with IDE and looking forward to the future summits of IDE.”

  • “By taking this opportunity I would say that the meetings were planned very well, and I had many fruitful meetings with the buyers who had a requirement in my product line. I definitely recommend the summit to my peers and will surely be part of the Hotelier Summit India next year.”

  • “The success of this "speed-dating" concept relies completely on the quality of the buyers who attend. The quality of companies and projects represented was excellent! The event was well organised and the IDE team made sure that we met with as many buyers as was physically possible! I regard this event as a great success and we will certainly attend future events.”
