Events: Bringing premium architecture and design product trade shows to regions of the UK and Ireland with thriving design industries.

Since 2014, #DesignPopUp events have allowed architects, designers and specifiers in the UK and Ireland's booming design regions outside of London to discover top brands and products for the specification market. 

Offering a more targeted, intimate and personal experience than traditional trade shows, visitors get to touch, feel, sit on and experience products first hand — it's a high-quality showroom right on their doorstep for 2–3 days.

Key to the events is what runs at the heart of them: a celebration of architecture and design, its products, community and future.

“As well as being an amazing evening, #DesignPopUp events are a great way for us to meet and engage with suppliers both existing and new in a more relaxed atmosphere and without the time pressures that project-based discussions or in-house CPDs often have.
