London Design Fair returns for 2023

October 28, 2022

(UK) – Due to popular demand, the UK’s most influential design fair is to make its much-anticipated return on 21 – 24 September 2023.

London Design Fair, an event for interior designers, architects, and retail buyers, will take place at the iconic Truman Brewery in the creative heart of Shoreditch.

Over its 14 years, the fair has developed a worldwide reputation as a trade destination for inspiration and business, with its contemporary selection of creators, manufacturers, and brands across multiple disciplines. Daniel Gava, Board Advisor to the Design Industry says, “I can’t wait for the London Design Fair to return to being the protagonist of the London design scene as it represents one of the key events that showcase the best of contemporary design, the result of an accurate international selection by its organisers.”

Known as one of London’s international design destinations due to its unique mix of worldwide designers, brands, and exhibitors (67% of exhibitors were from overseas in 2019), the fair will be a key event for design professionals, collectors, and enthusiasts during London Design Festival 2023. Once again, the show is expected to be a central hub for the design community to discover new product releases and identify emerging trends. 

Ben Evans, the Director of London Design Festival says, “London Design Fair is an important platform for a wide array of design businesses both domestic and international. A successful festival needs strong events like the fair and I welcome its return.”

London Design Fair’s Event Director Annie Lindell comments, “I know how much interior designers, architects and retail buyers appreciate the beauty and importance of face-to-face sight, touch, sound, and smell when it comes to making buying decisions. I fell in love with London Design Fair years ago when I saw first-hand how unparalleled this platform is for the design community. We are so excited to be bringing the Fair back in 2023 and to be working with the whole industry on their annual showcase.” 

Previous editions of London Design Fair have seen over 20,000 architects, interior designers, retailers, lighting designers, press & PR, manufacturers, wholesalers, and members of the design community from around to globe attend their annual showcase. The last edition saw visitors from 77 countries attend. In a recent survey, previous visitors rated London Design Fair as twice as important as the second-place event, showing the strong affinity between the fair and the design community.

New features for the 2023 event include the Design Alumni Pavilion and British Craft Pavilion, a world-class seminar line-up featuring unmissable sessions from leading interior designers, architects, and retail buyers, as well as an exclusive VIP programme offering an enhanced show experience to the biggest buyers and most influential leaders in the design industry.
