Launched in 1990, INDEX is the Middle East & North Africa’s largest gathering for the design community.
Connecting architects, interior designers, developers & procurement professionals with new brands, trend setting start-ups & the biggest international names in the interior furnishings & fit-out scene across all industries.
In March 2018, with over 400 exhibitors, INDEX was a fusion of new product launches, design ideas & innovations. Not only is it the longest running show of its kind in the region, the March 2018 show was also co-located with WORKSPACE & SURFACE Design Middle East.
September will see INDEX return for a second edition in 2018 - offering up a twist on our traditional show and an exploration of one of the most significant design journeys of all time. Our new theme, announced this week, will take visitors on journey from east to west as we celebrate 'The Silk Road' and the colours and patterns that represent the historical trade route that lives on to this day. The show will focus on individual designs and value driven products from Asia, sat alongside premium products from Europe.
Together, they will allow the show to present a wide selection of interior products that should suit the taste and budgets of all our visitors, covering their sourcing needs this autumn. This show will also be co-located with The Hotel Show, The Leisure show and the new launch event FIM, with visitors benefiting from the co-location and ability to crossover from one show to the next.
