Successful Interiors & Lifestyle Futures birthday celebration!

A big thank you to all who came along to our celebration exhibition on 21 March and made it such a great afternoon and evening! Birmingham's School of Jewellery exhibition hall had over 80 visitors and the excellent networking buzz lasted well past the official end of the event. It was fantastic to see a broad range of design and manufacturing capabilities represented from the West Midlands in one space.

'A wealth of creative companies'
Glenn Howells provided the keynote speech, championing the wealth of creative companies and designer makers that were exhibiting and are part of Interiors & Lifestyle Futures. The theme of collaboration was highlighted as central to the project’s achievements, including trade fairs, start-up initiatives, bespoke assistance and workshop activities.

'Today is about celebrating West Midlands creativity, I&L Futures achievements and the companies integral to the project.'

Speaking about the event, Graham Southall, managing director of Glassdomain said: “This exhibition by exciting young companies raises awareness of exactly what can be achieved when assistance from government organisations is given to innovative businesses.”
