Where would you like to exhibit at Surface Design Show 2017?

To complement the main body of the exhibition, we have introduced four sections - two are product specific and two focus on smaller companies who are new to the market.

light school

Light School was  first introduced to Surface Design Show in 2014 and quickly established itself as the UK’s main event for architectural lighting. Not just a trade show…Light School aims to provide architects and designers with education and knowledge about lighting design and lighting products. 


Stone Gallery was new to Surface Design Show 2016 and reflects the importance of the rapidly growing stone market in the UK. The Gallery will focus on natural stone from all over the world and will include composites, granite, limestone, marble, quartz, sandstone, slate and travertine for use in walling, flooring, roofing and hard landscaping. As well as UK producers, importers from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Morocco and Turkey are expected to exhibit. 


The Inspiration Centre has long been one of the major attractions of Surface Design Show. This area is restricted to companies and designers who are new to market. Offered at the lowest possible price, Inspiration Centre stands are located close together to provide a real market atmosphere and sense of togetherness!


Designer Row stands, at 3m2 each, are just a little bit bigger than the Inspiration Centre and come fully equipped with walling, lighting and furniture. Located in both the main exhibition area and in Light School Designer Row stands are quickly sold out!


Surface Design Show forms the main body of the event with more than 150 companies exhibiting a wide range of materials and products for internal and external surfaces. With stands ranging in size from 6m2 to 42m2 there is something to suit every budget.

New to Surface Design Show 2016 will be a focus on two, highly topical sector specific areas. Materials for Education and Materials for Hospitality will draw new audiences into Surface Design Show as we use our seminar programme, display space and Surface Spotlight Newsletter to identify the latest innovations and trends in these two key sectors.

Exhibitors will be invited to identify materials relevant to the Education and Hospitality sectors as we create a trail of stands, features and seminar hubs that will educate architects and designers in the latest thinking.
