There are many lasting changes that have come out of the global pandemic that we have had to embrace and adapt to. This includes the changing face of trade shows and design events.

Taking things online has become a fantastic opportunity for those that are heavily influenced by design, interior designers and those with a flair for design.

These immersive digital experiences are making it accessible to everyone from the comfort of their own abode. They can be enjoyed and watched on the go, or whilst you're carrying out other tasks. For what would normally warrant a couple days away and extensive travel, they're captivating the attention of many more individuals in this online format.
