designjunction has been awarded the title of BEST UK TRADESHOW (2,000 – 8,000sqm) at this year’s AEO Excellence Awards.
The awards, hosted by the Association of Event Organisers, was held last week and 1,200 industry professionals attended the ceremony acknowledging and rewarding the UK events industry for excellent products and business performance over the past 12 months.
designjunction, which took place at King’s Cross last year, has been awarded for its outstanding and unrivalled contribution to the exhibition industry and for organising one of the most exciting and engaging events of cutting-edge contemporary design, attended by more than 28,000 international visitors.
The judging panel commented “designjunction combines an innovative use of space with experiential activations and tailored channels of engagement for visitors which have all contributed to a unique experience.”
designjunction’s Founder, Deborah Spencer said “This is a fantastic achievement for the show which couldn’t have happened without the support, energy and commitment from the team, our partners and exhibitors. We remain fully committed to breaking the mould of traditional trade shows to showcase world-class design within exciting and ambitious locations, creating a truly unique experience for visitors to the show.”
designjunction (20 – 23 September), now in its eighth year, will take over the creative and cultural South Bank this year in September for the annual London Design Festival (15 – 23 September) showcasing more than 200 global brands across multiple locations.
designjunction will present a stellar line-up of UK and international brands – both established and emerging – showcased across three key venues including the Doon Street site (furniture, lighting and retail), Riverside Walkway (outdoor installations) and Oxo Tower Wharf (exhibitions and experiential events), all of which are owned and managed by Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB).
