BIID announces plans for regional roadshows

February 12, 2020

(UK) The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) has revealed its plans for four regional, Ask the Expert events throughout 2020.

The sessions are designed to provide an opportunity for interior designers to ask questions and seek advice from a range of industry experts. The events due to take place in Harrogate, Knutsford, Caerphilly and Edinburgh, as well as one London event, will reinforce the institute’s commitment to supporting interior designers across the country.

“We are extremely excited to meet more of our regional designers and support the interior design community outside of the capital”, said Harriet Forde, BIID President. “With 40% of our members working in practices outside of the capital, these events are a step in the right direction when it comes to forming a strong design community across the UK.

“As an institute, we recognise the value and importance of hosting events around the country to strengthen our regional presence.”

The events will provide an opportunity for designers to ask questions and discuss any queries with an expert from the built environment. Designed to be interactive and fast-paced, the sessions will provide professional guidance and allow interior designers to network with industry peers across the country in an exciting and engaging space. The details for all five events are as follows;

Lapicida; The Tile and Stone Specialist, Harrogate, North East – 6th May 2020

OKA Direct Ltd, Knutsford, North West – 13th May 2020

London: Havwoods, Clerkenwell, Tuesday 19th May 2020

Woodpecker Flooring, Caerphilly, Wales – 7th July 2020

The regional Ask the Expert sessions are open to both BIID Members and non-members with a limited allocation of student tickets available. The London event is for BIID Members only.

The events are all generously hosted by BIID Industry Partners from across the UK and are free of charge. To find out more information about any of the regional roadshow sessions.
