May Design Series returns to London for its third edition in 2015. This year, the event is ‘Curated for Business’ and will present 500 exhibitors from across the world to the UK’s most commercially focused trade exhibitions. A new feature this year will be a complimentary CPD-accredited seminar and conference programme. This will explore and debate the future impact of such issues as changing demographics, latest technologies and advanced materials with a focus on attracting and keeping customers and clients across all sectors of design. The show will span three days from 17 May at ExCeL London, offering numerous opportunities to network with fellow professionals and presenting an array of products for every interior space across five sectors: Furniture; Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms; Lighting; Decor and DX, the pavilion showcasing products which are using new materials and technology.
The programme is busy with other highlights as well. These include a selection of products showcasing the very newest talent on the design scene curated by the editor of Fiera Magazine, Katie Treggiden, who has trawled the design fairs of Stockholm, Frankfurt and Copenhagen in her quest. In an exciting new partnership with Bucks New University, there will be a collection of students’ work that has been influenced, inspired by or designed in collaboration with the industry. While Birmingham City University has again teamed up with Global Color ResearchTM and digital wall covering brand, Tektura, to bring innovative students from the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design to the show and explore 2015/16 trend predictions from Mix Publications.
Organized by the creators of Decorex and KBB Birmingham and curated to reveal some of the most exciting design-led products, May Design Series is perfectly positioned at the finale of the European show cycle to present shop-ready collections. The 2015 exhibition will include companies from over twenty-five countries, meaning that May Design Series is truly unique in offering a floor plan that is evenly allocated between British and overseas exhibitors.
