The UK's Commercial Interiors Event
Workspace Design Show brings together the entire commercial interiors community to discover and discuss tomorrow’s workspaces.
What will shape tomorrow’s workspace? Now more than ever, the future is based on togetherness, collaboration, and the spirit of cooperation.
Workspaces need to create environments that foster creativity and innovation, while also being agile for the flexible working models that people require.
Architects & Designers Night
An exclusive gathering of the UK’s leading figures in commercial A & D, allowing the Stella, Shiraz & Singapore Slings to fuel 2022’s new ideas and designs!
Trends Tour will be led by a media expert, who will visit selected exhibition stands to focus on the latest trends and innovations in workspace interiors. The media expert will conduct recorded interviews with the exhibitors and awards will be given to the selected exhibitors at the Architects & Designers Evening.
A chance to see how the post pandemic workspace world is re-designing co-working spaces, allowing employees from all kinds of companies to use shared working spaces and meeting rooms. Co-working spaces have transformed working models in recent years, and our new world is leading to even more innovations.
The Lighting Zone
One of the most stunning features at the event, showcasing an architectural lighting show representing top lighting brands as part of the live display. This feature focuses on educating our visitors on the importance of lighting in the office environment and its reflection on employee mood and productivity.
The pandemic has led to an increased demand for products that allow Home Working to be done in a comfortable environment. Hybrid working models are likely to be here in the longer term, and employers have started investing in products that improve wellbeing as well as fit in with residential designs.
