May Design Series - About Us

MDS 2015

London ExCeL 
17 - 19 May 2015

The UK's definitive
international interiors show


May Design Series is the UK's definitive international interiors show and is running between 17-19 May 2015 at ExCeL London. This is the third edition of the May Design Series which launched in May 2013.

We are a trade only design and furniture exhibition, with over 400 edited trade suppliers featuring in the 2014 edition of the show, and over 700 in 2015. The show is evolving this May with the re-location of one of the UK's largest furniture exhibitions INTERIORS UK, which will become The Furniture Show at the May Design Series. While there was an edit of The Furniture Show in May 2014, the full relocation will be complete in 2015.

Whether you are from the contract or retail market, the May Design Series interiors exhibition has the breadth of brands for you to source or specify a wide range of outstanding products from our five sectors.

Finally the UK will have a definitive interior design event to excite the British and international industry – and be the perfect finale to the international show season. Join us on this journey and be part of the show created for the industry, by the industry.

May is the end of the European show cycle; products have gone through the prototype phase and are ready to buy. However, while the May Design Series is all about getting down to serious business, we also want to spark conversations, inspire and inject a little bit of fun into the trade show experience with our Conversation Series, DX Freight, Late Night Party, Material Xperience and many more design-led features.
