AEO People's Award

Business Design Centre

Since opening, the BDC has welcomed an incredible variety of events. From conferences, awards and galas, to exhibitions, launches, and fundraisers. Some of the most longstanding shows include the London Art Fair, The Country Living Fairs and New Designers, all organised by the now Immediate Media. These multi-day exhibitions welcome tens of thousands of visitors from both across the country and globe. The initial concept of the Business Design Centre being a destination for the design industry to meet and grow has been renewed in recent years with a range of events including the Surface Design Show, HIX – the Hotel Design event of the year and the Workspace Design Show, among others. Tech has become a strong focus in the portfolio of conferences, including the large scale Devoxx UK and Droidcon events that have been hosted annually at the venue for many years.
