BIID CPD Providers Showcase 2019: Speaker Opportunities Now Available

The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) are delighted to announce that we will once again be holding our annual CPD Providers Showcase on Thursday 21st March 2019 at the Chesterfield Hotel, Mayfair, London from 10am to 4pm.    

Following on from the previous success of our last four Showcases, we expect next year's event to follow on the tradition of a fantastic day full of learning and networking. Past participants have included CPD Providers from across the industry, and all have received very positive feedback from delegates.

We are now inviting all accredited BIID CPD Providers, to take part in this, the fifth, CPD Provider Showcase, a day of CPDs delivered to an audience of 60+ BIID interior designers.

The event takes place just before we ask our Members to submit their annual CPD hours. As this event will count as 6 hours of their required annual total of 20 hours, we anticipate a very high turnout. The day has also become a favourite on the industry calendar with many designers making the pilgrimage to London to attend.

The concept is simple: you will only need to perform your existing BIID accredited CPD to our members, so there will be no pre-approval involved.  Your CPD also needs to be non-site specific and able to be presented in a seminar style. You will have great exposure to a group of professional interior designers through your CPD, and through the networking opportunities throughout the day.

Participation in the event includes:

  • 45-minute speaking slot to speak directly to an audience of 60+ professional interior designers
  • Opportunity for speaker + 1 colleague to network with designers throughout the day
  • Advance promotion via the event booking page, including hyperlink to company website
  • Section of the promotional table where you can display leaflets/brochures
  • Announcement of your participation on the BIID's Twitter account
  • Post event feedback and press release

The event will take place in The Royal Suite at The Chesterfield Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, a beautiful venue with a dedicated and professional events team.

All applications will be reviewed by a panel of experienced interior designers who will decide on the final programme.  With only 6 speaker slots, we will be limiting the number of speakers from the same industry as we are looking for a variety of different CPDs. We will also be looking to engage with Providers that have not yet presented at the Showcase, so encourage you to apply if you have not done so in the past.  

Participation in this event is billed at £645+VAT and the deadline to submit your application is 5pm, Friday 11th January 2019.

If you have any questions about the event, please do not hesitate to get in touch by contacting Hayley McLennan, BIID Learning and Events Executive
