designjunction wins 'Best UK Trade Show' at the 2018 AEO Excellence Awards

The London-based designjunction team had much to celebrate last week, as it was announced that they had been awarded the title of BEST UK TRADESHOW (2,000 – 8,000sqm) at this year’s AEO Excellence Awards.

The annual awards, hosted by the Association of Event Organisers, acknowledge and reward 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.”

Deborah Spencer, the show's Managing Director, expressed her team's excitement at their win: “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.”

This year sees the show move to London's vibrant South Bank: find out more here.
