Last but not least, we leave you some tips that every passionate of interior design should keep in mind when visiting the biggest fair of design and art. Read and make notes :
- Print out your badge at home and bring your ID and business card. It’s just good to have your passport or driver’s liscense with you at check in as they take this show super seriously and only want pros attending.
- Go around 10:00am to beat the crowded trains. Leave a little early for that same reason!
- You’re technically not allowed to take pics but it’s always good to have a camera since if you ask, many designers will let you shoot. Don’t take pictures without taking permission first! Ask and you’ll most likely receive!
- Strong Tote bag: You may pick one up at the show if someone is giving them away but it’s best to have something of your own to carry the literature and brochures from each vendor. You won’t be able to take anything out of the show until the last day. .
- Good shoes. I can’t even guesstimate how many miles of aisles there are in total. 100? 1000? Either way, dress for success and make sure your shoes are ones you love to cruise around in for hours.
- Travel light. If you don’t need to bring a coat, just wear the minimum cause the less you have to carry around with you the better. Dress is casually elegant.
