BIID Sustainability Showcase

Event description

The Showcase is back! Join us for a full day virtual conference of exciting talks from sustainability experts in the interior design sector 


Sustainability is no longer a nice to have, it has become imperative practice within the built environment to ensure the sector is working towards a green future.

Navigating the complexities of change to eco-efficiency from historical practice can be difficult, what can designers do to lead the change and be the difference?
