The Future Heritage exhibit space presents visitors the opportunity to meet new and emerging makers and crafts people and to see and discuss their work. The Future Heritage collection boasts a visually arresting and diverse media selection from glass and metal to ceramics and digital. 

Each designer is given total freedom to display their talent and it serves as a superb opportunity to meet and network with new and upcoming UK design talent before they become big industry names!

The Bar

The Bar is a fun staple of Decorex. Often sitting at the heart of the exhibition centre, the main bar is the perfect place to unwind and reflect on the inspiring designs at the show.

Each year a different design team puts their individual take on the bar and its features, changing the architecture and style to continue inspiring its patrons while they enjoy a quiet drink.

In our past visits we have often enjoyed the bar area, not just for a nice drink but as a calm space to sit and truly admire the wonder of Decorex.

There are lots of events taking place including seminars from key industry influencers, live workshops with top craftsman, and much more!
