The Furniture Show at May Design Series – running from 18-20th May at London ExCeL, and organised by UBM Live Built Environment – will present a truly international offering, with many new, established, international and UK names signed up.

UBM will also be working with the Portuguese association AIMMP, to present some of the best pieces to come out of Portugal.

Industry associations too have shown their support. Dids MacDonald, chief executive of ACID, says: “The ACID team is very excited to be getting involved with May Design Series this year. Anti Copying in Design (ACID) is committed to raising awareness of Intellectual Property issues in the design industry, and what better place to spread the message than at an international furnishings fair? By encouraging originality in design we hope to strengthen the industry for many years to come, and we look forward to offering help and advice - from frequently asked questions to more complex issues - at the show in May. We will also be launching ACID Marketplace, the UK’s first design and IP exchange, a safer trading conduit between designers and design buyers.”
May Design Series 2014 will amass close to 400 exhibitors in five distinct sectors – from Furniture, Decor, Lighting [including ARC], Kitchens & Bathrooms to DX. The Furniture Show at May Design Series, new for 2014, will welcome a preview of what is to come in 2015 - UBM plans for the show to become the definitive destination for new products covering every interior space.
