This was the largest set of Trade and Industry events ever held in the UK.  Diana Yakeley was invited to curate the contents of 19 palatial rooms to showcase the best of British design and  create conference and meeting rooms to enable delegates to hear inspirational leaders of  business and government promote the  UK  to global delegates.
