New Designers 2018 Students Announced

The event hosts thousands of current and graduating design students specialising in industrial & product design from all the best universities across the country. Our students will have the opportunity to meet industry employers, buyers, media contacts, trend predictors and members of the public across the week of the event.

The students we take are entirely decided by a vote. All current final year students and tutors cast a vote for their favourite project from the year group, with the top 14 gaining their space on our stand.
