posted on Tuesday, 16th August 2011 by David Slater



With more electronic distributors joining in on Design shows like Tent, Decorex, 100% Design and Grand Designs we take a sneaky peek into the shows.

Tent London

Tent London is one of the largest design trade shows taking place during the London Design Festival each September.

Now in its fifth year at the Old Truman Brewery, Tent London presents over 200 international exhibitors, showing the very latest in contemporary interior products - furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, materials and accessories. Over 19,000 international trade buyers, high calibre specifiers, opinion forming media and design savvy consumers from 44 different countries attend the four-day event. It is regarded as the most cutting-edge and progressive trade exhibition during the London Design Festival and must attend for those who need to be seen with their finger on the pulse.

Decorex International

Decorex is a trade show that I have been visiting for many years and it has been a constant source of good quality companies that we have connected with. The first time I visited this show I was pleasantly suprised with the many and varied stands, and found products that were great to include into our portfolio.

Decorex International 2011 will bring together a renowned selection of handpicked exhibitors, showcasing a unique display of exclusive, design-led interior products.

100% Design

For exciting and cutting-edge contemporary interior design, look no further than the event that started it all, 100% Design.

The UK's first and leading contemporary design show is a hub of creative talent from the UK and around the world and a key event in the international design calendar.

It brings together three inspiring exhibitions under one roof: world-class interiors show 100% Design, innovative surfaces at 100% Materials plus emerging talent showcase 100% Futures.

Vanessa Brady, SBID President, will be presenting a 'law and order' seminar on the 22 Sep at 11:15 discussing issues such as designer fee rates, intellectual property and qualification criteria.

Just returned from TENT helping out the guys from Redline. Showed the Seura 'mirror TV' solution along with Amina/ Velodyne hidden AV. Displayed in an Interior Design theme, interest received seemed vibrant and positive. A new audience!
