Surface Design Show is the only event in the UK that focuses solely on interior and exterior surfaces, connecting new and exciting materials with a specifying audience of architects and designers…
Returning to London’s Business Design Centre between 9-11 February, the 2016 Surface Design Show will be the largest and most exciting show yet, occupying both the ground floor and all of the mezzanine level for the first time.
2015 saw 5,586 professional and trade visitors, an unprecedented increase of 49% on the previous year. 80% of the audience came from architectural, interior design, lighting design or multi design practices with 5% of these visiting from abroad.
Since its inception in 2005, the show has become the destination for industry people to see, touch and explore the latest materials for the built environment, gain new insights and network with like-minded designers, architects and suppliers.
In 2016 there will be over 150 exhibitors and, with less than two months to go, sales for the show are running 30% ahead of this time last year. Already confirmed are RAK Ceramics, James Latham, Grestec Tiles and Concreate, all of whom are returning from last year.
New exhibitors for 2016 include Velstone, Soundtect, Lumiscopic, Green Interiors and Bokart. Surface Design Show 2016 will be full of new ideas and firm favourites, refreshed to provide our specifying audience with a unique visiting experience.
The packed programme of events and entertainment will include the Preview Evening Live Debate and the ever-popular PechaKucha Evening – an informal and fun presentation of inspirational slides.
