Surface Design Show, where surfaces come alive

Located in Islington, at the centre of London’s design district, Surface Design Show is the event of choice for architects, interior architects, lighting designers and designers.

In 2017, 5114 professional and trade visitors came to see, compare and specify the latest and most inspiring internal and external surface materials and architectural lighting.

Surface Design Show 2018 gives you the opportunity to engage face-to-face with a hard-to-reach and targeted audience - 37% of whom visit no other A+D event - to generate new business from the UK and Europe’s architectural and design sectors.

We have variety of opportunities to exhibit or participate in a way that suits your company and your budget. Light School, Stone Gallery and Designer Row are specific exhibit areas. Sponsorship opportunities provide additional value.

Check out as well our programme of awardsseminars, debates and presentations on 3 purpose-built stages across the exhibition floor.


In 2018, Surface Design Show will have a focus on two sector specific areas; materials for Residential Builds and materials for the Transport Sector. Both highly topical, this allows us to draw a new audience into the 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.
