The UK's avenue for interior design discoveries

Decorex London Update

Decorex London 2023 will take place as a face-to-face exhibition between 08.10.2023 and 11.10.2023 at Olympia London. The edition will not include strict COVID-19 safety measures. This is due to the lifting of the pandemic-related restrictions throughout the UK.


Decorex London has had a long history influencing trends in the interior design industry as the trade fair was first established in 1978. In its four decades, Decorex London has been a vital hub for innovation, networking and cross-border sales. Exhibitors come with the expectations to get a strong sense of emerging trends, elevate their own brands and increase their overall sales. In that sense, you can’t go wrong with a stand at Decorex London, because the entire value chain is fully represented. The product portfolio extends to wall coverings, furniture, lighting, craft, textiles and fabrics, floor coverings, accessories, curtains, contemporary art and bespoke pieces.


Decorex London arrives annually at Olympia Exhibition Center in London, UK and surprises both professional visitors and the general public alike with an exciting portfolio for four days in total. The international trade fair occurs early on in autumn either in September or in October and is put together by UBM plc. Working hours differ from day to day. All four days begin at 10:00 am in the morning and the first two days conclude at 18:00 pm. Due to the inclusion of the Consumers Welcome, the third day extends to 19:00 pm and the last day ends at 17:00 pm in the afternoon. The location of the exhibition centre next to Kensington railway station means there a great many options when it comes to public transport. Visitors can choose from Overground line, underground lines and the main railway service. No matter where you stay in London, there’s an easy way to get to the fair grounds.
