The boutique event will also be debuting a new content format with keynotes and workshop sessions taking place predominantly on the second day and held on beautifully designed exhibitor stands around the show floor. This dynamic programme facilitates a seamless day of inspiration and development.

Stand-out sessions include the opening keynote and the only session to take place on the first day, ‘Inspiration for beautiful design: Case studies in materials & spaces.’ Delivered by leading interior designers, attendees will be guided through a showcase of unique and inspiring projects across newbuild and refurbishment portfolios.
