As 100% Design enters its final hour, it has been an incredible show full of exciting features and stimulating discussions. Innovative products have been launched for the first time to the UK market, and traders have forged important contacts and extended networks. Interior designers have been inspired and bloggers have enjoyed spreading the word about everything going on. Hearing from our incredible headliners was of course a highlight, as was experiencing the features through the lofty Olympia, responding to the lovely late September sunshine.
100% Design hosted a series of very topical talks on Brexit, one particularly passionate talk was chaired by Show Director Will Knight and featured a stellar panel consisting of Louise Jury of the Creative Industries Federation,Marcus Fairs, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Dezeen, Ben Evans, Director of the London Design Festival and designer Paul Priestman, Chairman of PriestmanGoode. Dezeen recently released their Brexit Design Manifesto which has been gaining momentum.
We look forward to next year’s edition of 100% Design which will return to Olympia London 20-23 September 2017.
