When & Where
From launching the Truman Brewery as a major design destination with the first Designersblock show we have gone on to use St Pancras Station, the Tea Building and the Nicholls & Clarke Buildings in Shoreditch, No1 The Piazza Covent Garden, Earls Court 1 exhibition centre. In 2010 Designersblock took place at the Bargehouse next to the OXO tower.
Designersblock events launch buildings, landmark areas, and by introducing new audiences to new places act as catalysts for urban revitalisation.
Our shows take place in accessible, central locations at the same time as established and emerging design trade events such as 100% Design London and Tokyo, Milan Salone Del Mobile and the London Design Festival. For every event we develop a multilayered communication strategy with local partners and we communicate regularly with our international design industry database of over 30,000 subscribers including over 2000 journalists.
Designersblock shows are joined up events for all sectors of the industry. We bring together the diverse out-put of designers from different backgrounds and levels of experience, from Students and graduates to established design companies. We attract a dedicated and active audience of architects and design professionals, journalists, retailers and manufacturers, cultural and educational institutions, trend forecasters, opinion formers, students and public. The results are exhibitions regarded as being the most exciting, innovative and memorable design events in the world of their kind, vehicles for high quality content, dialogue and collaboration.
