30.12.2014 2015 is shaping up to be a great year already!

With the end of another fantastic year imminent here at the BDC, we are going to take a look at some of the events that are heading to the venue throughout 2015! Not only are some of the annual favourites returning but we also have some new and interesting shows for you to enjoy.

Starting with one of the largest events in our calendar; the London Art Fair is returning to the BDC on 21st – 25th January for the 27th year with around 128 galleries exhibiting. Alongside the artwork is an extensive program of talks from some of the industries most well known artists and designers, performances, tours and film screenings.

We can’t forget to mention some of the other fantastic shows that Upper Street Events (USE) bring to the venue throughout the year. Following on from the London Art Fair and the wintery weather we host the Country Living Spring Fair in March, (part of the Country Living Magazine portfolio) alongside the Christmas event in November which gets everyone in festive spirit. Later in June & July the BDC hosts one of USE’s longest running events which welcomes new and emerging designers from across the UK to the New Designers show along with the thousands of visitors that head to the venue to get a glimpse at some of the work from the graduates.

TNT Travel Show is returning in March bringing exhibitors with the knowledge needed for travelling the globe and travel companies with deals and packages available. It gives visitors the opportunity to speak with tour operators, overseas operators and all the services that will help you to explore the globe. The seminar program throughout the day gives visitors the chance to find out all the information about the holidays you may want to take in 2015 and beyond, to all of the unique trips from European festivals to Everest base camp treks. TNT travel show also has some of the most amazing prize give aways and visitors can see up to 50% off deals.

Later in the year we have some new events coming to the BDC such as SkyTech 2015 in April bringing around 60 exhibitors showing the capabilities within the commercial sector. Alongside this is the conference program, which includes talks on how technology is engineered right through to how it can help the public sector and expand the media in filming.

Be:Fit London is the largest women’s health & fitness festival including fitness classes along side some of the latest fashion trends and healthy diet snacks from hundreds of exhibitors. The show is ideal for all who are looking for a healthy lifestyle or looking at improving training and is open in May for 3 days starting 1st May 2015.

Familiar favourites, Terrapin are bringing the Home Delivery Congress to the venue next year. Now in its 2nd year the exhibition includes some of the largest courier companies in the UK giving delegates an insight into the work that they carry out and the scale they can deliver. The exhibition hall offers delegates an opportunity to sit in on seminars, take part in discussions and round table talks, rounding the day off with the networking party.

In September we see another new show taking over the Mezzanine. Stage and Screen looks into the music events industry bringing together all sectors and contractors involved with music events including all the services and latest products that both businesses can gain from for the following year of events. Promoters can find new business and all music industry students can connect with exhibitors and other fellow delegates.

Following the huge success earlier this year, World Low Cost Airlines Congress will be returning to the BDC in September for 2 days. The show brings together senior executives from both airlines and airports from across the globe to discuss the future for the industry and how they together can improve customer experience. Alongside the fascinating keynotes and discussion panels held by chief executives and directors of airlines such as Ryan Air and Easy Jet, the exhibition explores new and futuristic ideas that we could see in the sky in years to come.

The year ahead has plenty of great events on offer but don’t forget you can also keep up to date with our monthly events blog and our upcoming event listings for the year online.
