On top of this, we introduced a whole host of new show features which proved to be extremely popular, such as the INDEX Design Innovation Forum, which provided an ideal platform for the industry to come together to discuss current trends and challenges in the design world. An initial look at figures shows that not only are we up on exhibitor numbers but that the number of visitors to the shows has also risen for another year.”
