Martin Spreer

Director of Marketing and Communications

Connect with Martin

I bring over two decades of invaluable media experience in architecture and interior design to my role as Director of Marketing and Communications.


Hailing from Berlin, Germany, I relocated to England in my early twenties , where I met my wife. Our shared fascination with Canada during a vacation led us to make a permanent move here in 2001.


Throughout my career, I have been deeply entrenched in the architecture and design field. I have held management positions with respected publications such as AZURE Magazine, Canadian Architect, and Canadian Interiors. For the past 17 years, I served as the Senior Publisher of Canadian Interiors magazine, overseeing not only the magazine’s print publication but also its eNewsletter and social media channels.


My accomplishments in the industry are extensive and varied. I have been a driving force behind the success of numerous publications and initiatives, including serving as the publisher for the Interior Designer of Canada (IDC) association news update and print media news. Additionally, I played a pivotal role in promoting and celebrating excellence in interior design through his involvement as the official publisher of the annual ARIDO association awards magazine from 2007 until 2023.


My contributions extend beyond print media as well, having been the publisher of the Interior Design Show guide for both Toronto and Vancouver, as well as the IIDEX show guide and daily show news.
