SURFACE DESIGN SHOW: bringing surfaces to life

Surface Design Show is the only event in the UK that focuses solely on interior and exterior surfaces. Taking place in London’s Business Design Centre, SDS showcases the best in surface material design, development, innovation and manufacturing.

A hectic programme of thought-provoking presentations, awards, debates and innovative features sets SDS aside from other events and draws an audience of some 5,000 architects and interior designers anxious to discover and specify the very latest surface solutions.

Located in Islington, at the centre of London’s design district, Surface Design Show is the event of choice for architects and designers. In 2020, 4,943 professional and trade visitors came to see, compare and specify the latest and most inspiring internal and external surface materials and architectural lighting.

Surface Design Show provides the opportunity to engage face-to-face with a hard-to-reach and targeted audience. 83% of our visitors came from the A+D sector with 77% having purchasing authority, providing the perfect platform to generate new business from the UK and Europe’s architectural and design sectors.

We offer a variety of opportunities to exhibit or participate in a way that suits your company and your budget. Specific exhibitor zones include Light School, Stone Gallery and our New Talent area. Partnership opportunities are also available for companies looking for alternative ways of branding or to provide additional value.
