" A tremendous success - it exposed our brand to clients that we didn’t know, due to the pull of the May Design Series shows within the show, such as KBB and DX."

Everyone should be doing this. Delivering the right message to the right people at the right time.Georgie Simpson,Trend GB




My first impression; fresh, modern varied, entertaining. It has everything i want from a show. Big step forward. It crosses over between industry sectors, which is excellent.” Roger Kyme, Chief Executive, Ripples



The show was busy and had a genuine ‘feel good factor’ from beginning to end. We far exceeded the number of contacts we thought we would achieve.Paul Shoosmith, Sales Director, Vivid Lighting


Looks fantastic, the best looking show we’ve ever done. Well laid out, airy and aesthetically pleasing.Ian Ashley, Director, Hitch Mylius


It’s grey in London today but come and brighten up your day at maydesign @ May Design Series." @PrintedSpace


The show is nice and spacious with the bright lighting and the fresh feel the show is really nice experience to do business in." Mark Hobinson, Funktional Kitchens


The DX Freights instantly grabbed my attention when I walked into the exhibition. It was great being able to see and compare the different trends from each of the international shows, and there was a good diversity of products and brands. It’s really inspiring to be able to touch, see and feel the products too." Hayley Tarrington, Owner and Designer, Day True


We are very much looking forward to joining the Furniture Show at May Design Series line-up this year. The proposition has a lot to offer, firstly the May timeline suits us well as we will have our new products ready for visitors to buy after unveiling the prototypes in Milan, secondly London will undoubtedly offer a better experience for our buyers. We fully support the organisers' decision to relocate this event, and we are confident that it will be a great success." Fabrizio Giuliani, Sales Manager, Calia Italia

And the best of some of the rest...

"MDS is perfectly formed, beautiful and growing in size year on year. It has been reconfigured to include many first time exhibitors from around the world as well as national trade suppliers. There will be something new for all design professionals to see, learn and takeaway.Vanessa Brady, President, SBID

Shows like May Design Series are a great platform for viewing new products and innovations, as well as networking with like minded individuals within the kitchen, bathroom and furniture industries, all under one roof. I am very much looking forward to this year's preview edition of the show, which presents an opportunity to see all the great brands on offer ahead of the show's opening. Following the recent launch of the 3 year Foundation Degree course in Kitchen Design which starts in September 2014 and delivered by Bucks New University, the show will be a great platform to promote the course to both industry and individuals.Renée Mascari, CEO, NTG

Very light, spacious and airy. A welcoming and very European feel to the show." Jayne Hill, Coram Showers

First impressions @dxlondon @maydesignseries looks great!"@demagazine

I have been here a number of hours and I have already seen numerous products that I haven’t seen at any other show. There is certainly a wide variety."Karnran Rafiq, Marketing and business development manager, Celestial Leather

I was unsure what to expect now that four shows have been brought together, but it is nice to see products and brands from other areas of the industry that I wouldn’t have otherwise known about – there are a lot of great new products.Kenneth Critcher, Managing Director, 4 Inspired Interiors

Visited the MayDesign show at the ExCel last night. Always interesting to see a new show with different suppliers and products." @BenjaminWestLDN
