INDEX is one of those shows that helps keep you up-to-date with 'current happenings' in the world of interiors. It's simply a must attend event.

I find INDEX opens my eyes to innovative ideas I can actually incorporate into my projects to give me a competitive edge. Living abroad, it's not often I get to network with such high calibre professionals shaping the future of the Middle East's design industry - truly inspiring. It was also a great opportunity to source products for a few of my current projects. I loved the overall experience and the team and I are eagerly awaiting INDEX 2019.

I attended INDEX with the hope that I would find new suppliers and innovative products. I wasn’t disappointed at all. I now have new rug suppliers from Istanbul and from India, new products from Sweden and new wallpaper suppliers to name but a few!
