Meetings are held each month, usually on the second Tuesday in the form of either a product night, forum or workshop. QIDA’s events are specifically designed to keep our members informed and actively engaged with the industry. We achieve this by working closely with our Associate members to host a variety of functions including workshops, training sessions and product launches. These provide exposure to industry news, trends, products and innovation. In addition to gaining building industry knowledge and keeping it up-to-date, participation at QIDA’s events provides members with important and valuable networking opportunities. Our gatherings are fun, relaxed and supportive, offering members opportunities to meet associates and make new friends.
