For 160 years, entrepreneurs have turned their dreams into reality at the BDC. What’s your big idea?

Business Design Centre is a destination in its own right, based in the heart of the London Borough of Islington. The building is fully accessible and has onsite parking as well as bike storage and shower facilities. With two restaurants at the BDC and meeting rooms available, there’s plenty of space for your business to meet and grow. Not only that, but you will benefit from our 24 hour concierge desk, onsite technical support and events to make the most of the BDC community, as well as the Hilton hotel and Pure Gym right next door…

The origin of the Business Design Centre, was born from an idea that would bring together, industry leading design events and groundbreaking designers. For over 35 years, companies have launched game-changing products, built prominent brands and have worked collaboratively, at both events and from showrooms based permanently at the venue. Now with it’s diversified portfolio of events and residents, there are many other industries that also benefit from this unique style of collaboration at the venue. Take a look at our most recent design event, HIX 2021, in this short video.
