In 2017, Design Exchange produced its most ambitious project yet known as EDIT: Expo of Design, Innovation, and Technology.

This groundbreaking inaugural festival will ignite conversations through an array of curated exhibits, compelling talks, and inspiring installations.

Inviting some 100,000 visitors to East Harbour (formerly Unilever soap factory) in Toronto‘s Port Lands, EDIT challenges visitors and participants to consider how we can make the world a better place.
