Those who are serious about the business of design attended May Design Series from May 17 to May 19, 2015 at London’s ExCeL to meet suppliers, engage in conference debates, gain knowledge and inspiration at seminars and discover new British and international design talent. Lodon’s Most International Interior Design event curated for Quality and Creativity.
Exhibitors from both the UK and abroad were exceptionally pleased with the range and quality of visitors to their stands, and felt it had been an unrivalled opportunity to connect with their target audience. Ben Rigby, Director of Haberdashery which showcased the illuminated, sound-responsive installation ‘Disco Disco’, was enthusiastic about the experience, “These three days have been a very positive experience. We’ve met lots of interesting and varied contacts including interior designers, architects, and developers from a range of sectors – many more than we could hope to achieve over the same period ourselves.”
Several UK brands attracted a great deal of interest from the international mix of visitors. “It’s been a really good show for us and we’re very, very happy. The quality of people on the stand has been fantastic and we’ve got lots of leads to follow up” commented Rebecca Mansell, Director, The London Tile and Mosaic Company, at the event. Mark O’Neill, Managing Director, EQ Software and Compusoft UK felt the company had exceeded expectations in terms of sales at the show, saying “we’ve done very well indeed; the response from retailers and manufacturers has been very good; we’re really, really pleased.” He added.
Making a striking impression was the illuminated, colour shifting tunnel leading to the heart of the exhibition area, specially created by Inspired Design & Lighting, who also had a stand at the show. Numerous visually striking stands showcased stylish, innovative and commercially ready designs. Just some of the many with stand-out displays included furniture brands Calia Italia, CasaMatera, La Ebanisteria, Tomasella, Two.Six; lighting companies AcoShape+, Astro, Ebb & Flow, Lladro, Villa Lumi.
The Artisans of Light area called attention to smaller lighting companies that are producing unique handcrafted designs. The Designer Makers space was buzzing with visitors keen to see the best in British craftsmanship, with custom products displayed ready to buy or commission at the event. The impressive line-up of speakers at the free-to-attend, three-day Conference and Seminar programme was a big draw for many visitors. Many sessions were full to capacity and speakers were pleased with the interest from enthusiastic audiences
