New Talent

Supporting New Talent - a key focus for Surface Design Show

A record 33 ‘New Talents’ participated at Surface Design Show 2022 providing an exciting dynamic for both visitors and exhibitors as SDS enlarged its support for those starting their career in the design world.

Curated by Chief Creative Director at Trendease International, Jennifer Castoldi, our New Talent section will again inspire and excite our audience in 2023.

Subsidised by Surface Design Show, New Talent stands come as a turnkey package to include stand walling, carpet, nameboard, lighting and furniture. An entry in the Exhibitor Hub on the show website is also included and all our New Talents are invited, free of charge, to join an exclusive workshop to help them get the most out of their participation.

With some 4,800 visitors attending, Surface Design Show offers fresh design talent an exciting opportunity to meet and engage with architects, interior designers and designers who can transform their careers.

Design never stays still and that’s why we want our New Talent section to inspire both our exhibitors and our visitors and for them to learn from each other and to connect for a better future.
