New Designers Part 2
06 - 09 July 2016 (Awards Preview 06 July)
Events in New Designers Part 2
Awards Preview | Wed 06 July, 3pm-9pm
Our Awards Preview Evenings demonstrate the design industry's support and recognition of creative excellence. During these evenings our sponsors demonstrate their support for emerging UK design talent and creativity by presenting a series of prestigious Awards to the year's most talented graduate designers.
You can attend these exclusive events with a VIP Pass or Preview Ticket. These give you access to the show from 3pm so that you can spend time meeting this year’s exhibitors before the Awards presentations begin at 6.30pm.
Both Awards Preview Evenings are support by Absolut.
Thursday Late | Thurs 07 July, 5pm-8pm Industry Meets New Designers, in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network
The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) accelerate innovation, solve problems and find markets for new ideas by encouraging better collaboration between science, creativity and business. Now, more than ever, cross-disciplinary thinking and ways of working are vitally important for the continuing success of the creative industries and UK economy.
As part of this year’s Thursday Late programme at Part 2, we’re joining forces with the KTN and its partners the Institute of Directors, IORMA and The Manufacturer to invite leading industrialists, entrepreneurs and investors – who usually work outside of the creative sector – along to see the show.
