Urban Encounters is a tabletop trade show held in two locations (Edmonton and Calgary). The main focus is two-fold. Firstly, it is held to showcase the latest products and services for commercial and residential suppliers to the Alberta Interior Design community. Secondly, it is an opportunity to bring the design and supply community together in an informal, social atmosphere to help in the establishment of mutually beneficial client-vendor relationships.
