It has been many months since we have been able come together with our friends and colleagues in the commercial interiors sector and the overriding feeling at this new event was one of community.

International, industry leading brands, were able to welcome their customers into their showrooms in person. Across the two days it was joyful to be able to visit showrooms to participate in their workshops, product launches, independent talks and networking drinks. I will share more event highlights in this trend report.

An in depth event seminar programme was organised by event partner Women in Office Design (WOD) and enabled industry leaders to share their knowledge.

I often feel that the weather knows when there is an event in Clerkenwell and we were not let down with two lovely warm days, perfect for Clerkenwell Open visitors to walk between showrooms.
