Being involved in the first Brighton Design Show should be a memorable experience. Whether it’s exhibiting your designs, delivering a talk, putting on a workshop or becoming a volunteer, there are some great incentives for taking part.

Call for entries – applications are currently being accepted. New dates for 2021 will be announced when it is safe to open fully.

How do we select our designers?

As this is first year for The Brighton Design Show, we are really open to the variety of designers and disciplines that Brighton and Hove has to offer.

Most of our exhibitors and speakers are included based on a number of criteria ranging from designers we admire with an interesting story to tell, to emerging designers looking at design differently. We aim to celebrate the success of designers based in or from Brighton and Hove, or have a creative connection to this vibrant city.
