Individual interior designers, design consultancies and industry suppliers can become regular members of the association. APID serves its members by providing a platform between professionals and its partners in academia, government and the media to exchange ideas, improve standards, share best practice, gain business referrals, shape young talent, enhance skills and raise awareness on issues of concern to the interior design profession. 

Since 2005, APID has been providing its members with learning opportunities through a Seminar Series and with occasions to interact and network during regular monthly gatherings that bring inspirational speakers and innovative ideas to the community. APID will be opening a space in Dubai Design District for members to convene, collaborate and connect.

With confirmed orders taken from The Hotel Show are expected to top over $12 million of new trade that was made possible very much partly because of the high quality of visitors related to the hospitality procurement and contracting market.
