The Virtual Interiors Event is a brand new online exhibition, which is due to take place on 24-25 February. The event is the brainchild of Sally Rice and Beth Harrison, who boast a combined 35 years’ industry experience.
‘The commercial interiors industry is all about connection: connecting people, connecting with new ideas as well as being tapped in to new products at the forefront of innovation,’ Sally says. ‘We feel The Virtual Interiors Event offers the industry access to all of these and more, regardless of location, travel restrictions or even time zone.’
Sponsored by Chaucer Logistics, CMD and Orangebox (while, we’re delighted to say, Mix Interiors is a media partner), the event features virtual exhibition stands from established manufacturers such as Vitra, KI Europe, Camira and Brunner, alongside smaller firms such as Sileather UK, who produce an eco-friendly, bio-resistant, sustainable faux leather made with 100% silicone.
Thought leadership will form a key part of the agenda, with speakers such as HOK’s Director of Workplace, Kay Sargent, discussing neurodiversity and social equity, TEDx speaker Ben Channon on designing for happiness, and Element 4’s Georgia Elliott Smith. Also speaking will be workplace psychology expert, Craig Knight, Spacelab’s Rosie Haslem and designer Anna Hart.
