ND Selects (Previously One Year In) is a curated space at New Designers dedicated to shining a light on new businesses in the design industry. It is one of the most popular features of our show as our visitors love seeing products that are already on the market and who attend the event ready to seek out the hottest design trends. This area is always sought out by our trade audience of industry leaders who attend the show ready to commission or invest in the latest new products on the market.
Each exhibitor is hand-selected by a panel of industry experts for their innovative designs. For 2023 we will open up our criteria to include any business who has been in operation for three years or less (previously just one year). If you are a talented designer who has launched a business within the previous 3 years, click below to apply now.
The deadline for ND Selects applications has been extended until Wednesday 12 April 2023. With just a few limited spaces remaining, make sure you send your application as soon as possible. Good luck!
ND Selects welcomes applications from any design business who has launched within the last three years. Exhibiting Fee: £575 + £99 service fee + VAT. An independent panel of judges, headed up by our 2023 curator, will select the participants for ND Selects based on the following criteria:
To guide and influence our wonderful lineup of One Year In exhibitors we asked a collection of industry experts to screen this year’s OYI applicants.

‘Thank you for a great Week One at New Designers. I have been flicking through my little book of contacts I made over the week and there are some very promising leads for me to follow up on! I was also pleased to make a fair few sales. The event helped me to learn more about what my customers are looking for and gave me a much-needed confidence boost!’
