As an upcoming interior designer in Africa, specifically Ghana, INDEX opened my eyes to a lot innovative ideas to which I believe will give our company Purple Square Interiors an urge above others in our country. It was also a great opportunity for us to network and source out products for our current projects. We really loved the total experience INDEX offered. All in all we would say it was a great exhibition and we are eagerly waiting for the next one in 2019.
