The team behind design shows Decorex, designjunction, kbb Birmingham and Sleep and Eat have launched a new virtual event called Designscape, taking place 11th-13th August.
The three day event looks to the future of design, combining virtual symposiums, educational and topical seminars, global matchmaking & speed networking, and a product directory.
Designscape’s content programme will look at how behavioural changes and outside influences are transforming the design landscape. On 11 August [Retail] will examine physical spaces becoming experience-driven, the intersection of retail and digital, the progression of the everyday kitchen, and the shop window as a storyteller. The second day will be dedicated to residential design and will focus on new criteria and considerations governing the design of the home, the evolving and uncomfortable notion of luxury, the emergence of modern primitive styles, and the current state of the residential market. The final day looks at the Hospitality market will feature talks around the alignment of sustainability and safety, AI’s impact on customer experiences, and future-proofing expansion and investment plans.
Designscape offers Matchmaking and Speed Networking platforms allowing visitors to arrange individual video meetings with other attendees and suppliers from the product directory across the three days.
Dana Teague, VP Design Group at Informa, said: “Designscape is a direct response to what the design industry has told us they need – an opportunity to meet with suppliers, source new products, network with existing and new business contacts as well as a place to be inspired and learn. All this on a global scale! We are committed to giving the industry something new, challenging them to think differently about design with our programme bringing together industry professionals alongside specialists looking at how behavioural change will affect every step in the design process across every sector.”
