This year we were the official digital partner to all of the major trade shows during London Design Festival. As the dust settles, we take a moment to revisit some of our highlights and eporta product spotlights of each shows:
Decorex, Syon Park
Frequented by interior design professionals for the past 40 years, Decorex has firmly placed its mark on the industry for discovering and meeting with eclectic, inspiring and luxury brands. This year we collaborated with Decorex to celebrate their 40th anniversary through three insightful industry pieces; The Changing Role of the Interior Designer, Creative Entrepreneurship and Future Technologies in Design.
100% Design, Kensington Olympia
From the makers of Clerkenwell Design Week, 100% Design is a popular trade show for designers and property developers aplenty. The show features established names in the design industry, as well as a section dedicated to new talent.
Above we feature; H Furniture, Mairi Helena Designs, James UK, Studio Italia, Mambo Unlimited Ideas and Mullan Lighting. During the show, Bea (our Head of Global Partnerships) chaired panel discussions on how the design industry and role of interior designer is changing, as well as whether trends are important to interior design, or irrelevant. To get involved in 100% Design next year, contact Mark.
designjunction, Kings Cross
Attracting interior designers, retail buyers and design-enthusiast consumers, designjunction has divided its show into two clear destinations – Cubitt House & Park for trade buyers, and The Canopy, a live retail area. This year we ran VIP breakfast tours, in collaboration with the BIID, for interior designers and visited a number of our suppliers along the way. Special thanks to HAM and T-London for goody bags treats!
London Design Fair, Old Truman Brewery
Last, but by no means least, the London Design Fair is the destination for independent makers and studios. Boasting the largest collection of international exhibitors, London Design Fair also celebrates design within country collectives – a great way to see what different countries have to offer!
Of course, if you have any questions on the right show(s) for you in 2018, let us know and we’ll be happy to help!
