Offering opportunities for fellow industry professionals to engage in key commercial topics, learn from the experts in their field and contribute to panel discussions – not just for a couple of hours interesting debate, but to inspire, create and lead a change for wider industry improvement.
Last year’s SBID Meet The Buyer business seminars included talks about what makes a Superbrand, as well as a special panel discussion about the industry’s ‘dirty little secrets’ such as issues with non-payment and protecting your copyrighted designs post Brexit.

With construction and interior design among the least regulated professions, many professionals in these industries remain at the mercy of clients when it comes to payment. Non-payment has become an all-too-common industry injustice, and is a challenge SBID will address head on during the forthcoming Meet The Buyer event. A panel discussion featuring an expert line-up will outline the issues and examine what’s being done to protect professionals. Designers, specifiers and manufacturers are all invited to take part in the discussion.
