Every year the Design Talks at INDEX, sponsored by OFIS, are one of the highlights of the show, with over 60 of the GCC’s top designers leading an exciting programme of discussions on key trends, challenges and opportunities in the interiors industry.
This year’s Design Talks demonstrate how incredibly quickly things can change in the regional market. 2017’s programme was dominated by how interior designers and retailers were sustaining themselves throughout a fairly lean period, but the mood for 2018’s is far more optimistic, more agile and more commercially aggressive. This year, leading interiors companies are positioning themselves to capitalise on new opportunities in a fast-revitalising, fast-restructuring environment and have agreed to share these new insights and strategies with the Design Talks audience at the event.
Amazingly, the Design Talks are completely free-to-attend for all INDEX visitors. However, we strictly limit the number of seats to ensure genuine interplay between the speakers and the audience and do not issue tickets in advance, so we encourage you to arrive early if you intend to take part in this key moment of knowledge-sharing and networking in the sector’s annual calendar.
Here is what our 2017 Speakers had to say about INDEX.
