Located in Islington, Surface
Design Show is the event of choice for architects, interior architects,
lighting designers and designers.
Over 150 companies from the UK and abroad will be participating from 5-7
February 2019 at the Business Design Centre displaying the largest and most
innovative selection of surface materials.
Running alongside Surface Design Show will be Light School and Stone
Gallery, two events specific to those markets.
Three Stages located on the show floor will host over 40 presentations,
including the Opening Night Live Debate in association with RIBA and NLA, our
ever-popular PechaKucha Evening hosted by Chris Dyson of Chris Dyson Architects,

BIID will again be hosting a highlight event on the Main Stage presented by BIID President, Gilly Craft. 'Designing for an Aging Population' will discuss
issues such as dementia, as
well as the trend for more aspirational retirement apartments for an ageing
population who want access to care facilities whilst still living in a
well-designed, contemporary space that is suited to senior living. See Gilly
Craft on the Main Stage, Thursday 7 February, 12:45pm-13:30pm.
