The Organisers

All showrooms in Clerkenwell will be able to participate, not just members of the BCFA and WOD.

“In launching the first Clerkenwell OPEN our aim had simply been to get people back into Clerkenwell and to kick start networking and engagement. In doing this it became clear that there was a need for a new Clerkenwell event, that led on thought leadership and was entirely centred on the showrooms and the people in our sector. This second Clerkenwell OPEN will build on this and will continue to be all about inspiring the people and businesses in our sector.”

– Jeremy Stein
MD, BCFA (British Contract Furnishing Association)

“The success of last year’s Clerkenwell OPEN prompted us to make this into an annual event, to celebrate our Work, our People and the Culture of the workplace design industry.

The aim is to engage designers, manufacturers and the wider audience of the industry through thought-provoking talks, workshops and networking events. The events focus will be on the key elements of ‘progress’ and ‘moving forward’ and therefore our core theme for CO this year is Sustainability and the Future of workplace design.”

– Harsha Kotak
Founder, WOD (Women In Office Design)
