Building A&D


Hosted in magnificent, restored period buildings, #DesignPopUp 2-day exhibitions deliver an exciting, innovative platform for the A&D community to explore the latest products for the specification market in a relaxed, welcoming and synergistic environment.


In addition to our infamous “Parmesan & Prosecco” networking party, we celebrate the future of design with a rich program of talks, product demos, CPDs, and panel discussions.


Virtual Events

These online events cover the most interesting, thought-provoking and relevant topics of conversation for the specification market and the ever-evolving world of design and architecture.


“#DesignPopUp offers the A&D community a place to connect with peers in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere.


The variety of quality brands showcasing design-led, high-quality furniture and finishes is great. It introduces me to new products which I can then use on current and upcoming projects.”
