Every year SBID curate an exclusive series of interior design business seminars for manufacturers and designers

SBID facilitate interesting debates on subjects to stimulate and lead change for broader industry improvement, as well as to inspire. Members can learn and contribute to panel discussions, providing an opportunity for industry and design professionals to engage in commercial topics of interest presented by experts of their field.

The last SBID Meet The Buyer business seminars in 2019 (pre-pandemic) included titles ‘What creates a Superbrand?’, as well as an insightful panel discussion regarding the industry’s ‘dirty little secrets’ surrounding issues on non-payment and protecting copyrighted designs post Brexit.

Meet the Buyer Business Seminars for 2021:

Interior Design for a Sustainable Future

How Virtual Intelligence Impacts the Design Industry

Art for Art’s sake: Using Art in Interior Design

Upcoming Seminars include:

Art for Art’s Sake

Art is one of the elements that brings a project together and helps improve the overall look and feel of the design.  Art is not just a painting on the wall. It is all about textures, colours, innovation and architectural touches.

Using Art in Interior Design

This seminar will address the importance of integrating art in the design process. Three artists from the agency will share their experiences working with designers, demonstrating how collaborating with professional artists can elevate projects. Designers will learn about using and integrating art in their design schemes to maximise impact. 

Presented by Nobu Hotels and Art In…

Having carved a unique position in hospitality as a destination of the arts, Nobu Hotels will share more about who commissions each piece and the vision behind the brand. Art In… represent an international portfolio of multi-disciplinary artists to provide a bespoke ‘white glove’ art service. They aim to integrate art at the earliest stage possible into the design process in order to significantly enhance the overall result.

SBID throw spotlight on issue of non-payment with panel discussion

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 address head on, featuring a panel discussion with an expert line-up to outline the issues and examine what’s being done to protect professionals.
