Teknion Corporation today announced its sponsorship as Corporate Partner of ideacity – Canada’s Premier Meeting of the Minds – June 18-20 in Toronto at The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Koerner Hall.

The annual ideacity conference has earned a reputation as Canada’s Premier Meeting of the Minds. Playing host to a mix of distinguished thinkers, from artistic talents and literary heavyweights, to innovative scientists and visionary entrepreneurs, ideacity is more than just a stage to air new concepts – it’s an incubator for inspiration. With only 600 spaces in the audience, ideacity benefits from an engaged and informed viewership, and a crowd that consistently matches speakers’ enthusiasm and zeal. "For the past 15 years, ideacity has been a conduit for today’s top innovative thinkers and problem solvers," said David Feldberg, Teknion President & CEO. "Like ideacity, Teknion furniture products are the catalyst to bring people together, and to encourage collaboration, fresh ways of thinking and problem-solving, for the future of work."

ideacity attendees will experience several Teknion seating collections by renowned international designers. During extended breaks they will mingle with speakers and relax in lounge seating that meets traditional needs and the new demands of open areas and group workspaces. Fractals and Envita lounge seating from Teknion Studio plus Teknion dna modular lounge seating with laptop tables will fill the Koerner Hall lobby, along with the Cloud sofa and Dip stainless steel bench from the B&B Italia Project Collection. ideacity will use Teknion’s CLUBtalk technology-furniture hub for its webcasts.

Produced and presented by Canadian media visionary Moses Znaimer, the three-day gathering offers an unprecedented opportunity for audience members to mingle and connect with varied and distinguished presenters. For more information on ideacity, visit:
