“As the Official Talks Partner, it was great to be part of the first WDS, we felt it was a huge success! I thought the talks were all really interesting and something unique in the UK market.”

Ed Hoban

Associate Director, Head of Workplace, The Furniture Practice

“It was a genuine pleasure to take part, and the feedback has been tremendous. On the day the organsiation was super, and I really enjoyed doing both my sessions. There seemed to be a real joy at being ‘back in the room’.”

Neil Usher

Chief Workplace and Change Strategist, GoSpace AI
“Given the 18 months we have been through the Workspace Design Show was pure joy – to be able to meet designers, manufacturers and suppliers in person again for real connection, conversations and collaboration. The calibre of talks and panellists was exceptionally high, discussing real and relevant topics and I was honoured to chair a session. I’m looking forward to the next show in February 2023.”

Karen Haller

Founder, Karen Haller Behavioural Design Consultancy

“What the workplace sector needs right now is expertise to come together to explore and experiment on our future places. The Workspace Design Show Talk’s offered just that – providing an environment where all parts of the design supply chain put their heads together to question the possibilities we have, as we all navigate the next normal. It was fantastic to be a part of a panel of experts who will help shape this future.”

Matthew Holloway

Principal, Grimshaw Architects
“The show had a real buzz about it which was exciting to see. It was good to see all the products on display – perhaps as we get back to working in new ways, we will see more variety of furniture settings.”

Sheela Shukla

Director, Design, BDP
“The Workspace Design Show was just the tonic that our community needed after the isolation and worry of the pandemic – like-minded people in the same place, catching up to see, touch, hear and speak about design!”

Cristiano Testi

Principal Director, tp bennett
“Deciding to exhibit at the Workspace Design Show was great for the AllSfär team. After such a long time of not seeing people face to face it was an ideal opportunity for us to meet highly relevant contacts and showcase our latest products and colour range. The show was a huge success for us, delivering new leads and quality enquiries. We’re already planning our stand for the next show in 2023!”

Chris Michaeloudis

Head of Marketing, AllSfär
