Everything you need to know about the May Design Series
In response to the design communities needs, UBM has created the May Design Series to provide a single destination for four of the most important trade exhibitions; kbb LDN, The ARC Show, DX and Interiors LDN, at ExCeL London 19th - 21st May.
The May Design Series will provide the definitive destination for inspiration for London-based interior design, property, architectural and retail communities that buy and specify for projects around the world. For the first time, these buyers will have the opportunity to make fully informed buying decisions at the end of the European show cycle and see new designs as soon as they are launched.
The May Design Series serves to bring together leading practitioners and the finest international brands, to form a world-class comprehensive trade show in the heart of London. UBM recognises that buyers visiting these individual shows often have additional needs outside of their direct industry and so it is for this reason that UBM has grouped together these shows to allow these buyers to conveniently and easily cross over in to others relevant areas. These four commercial events will meet the needs of their individual communities and combined serve the broad sourcing needs of these key buyers.
Visitors will be able to gain real insight into the latest advancements, discuss forward-thinking ideas, pressing topics and hard-hitting issues, through the packed programme of speakers. As part of the May Design Series, this speaker programme will also reflect the coming together of these separate events, and provide the setting for discussion between these related communities.
The May Design Series is set to put the buzz back into trade exhibitions with exclusive exhibitors, Ab Rogers' innovative show experience and a packed programme of inspirational speakers. It will be the place to be and to be seen for the design community, and the event for networking with the Champagne Bar, the Innovation Centre and much more.
