The Commercial Interiors UK Annual Luncheon 2023 took place on 2nd November, at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
As one of the most significant events in the calendar for designers, architects, manufacturers, and suppliers in the commercial interiors sector, Muraspec were thrilled to be one of the 6 sponsors for the event.
Commercial Interiors UK Chair, Carolyn Mitchell, addressed the attendees in her opening keynote, discussing the ongoing concern of inflation, emphasising its prolonged effects on our sector, as well as adding “it’s the only event that brings us all together from all areas of our industry”.
The event also served as the official introduction of Sean Holt as the new Managing Director of Commercial Interiors UK and Design Insider. During his address, Sean outlined his vision and goals, which, in collaboration with the board, aim to expand the organisation’s membership, enrich the benefits offered to members, and establish Design Insider as the industry’s foremost journal. His mission is to foster collaboration within the commercial interiors community, charting a course towards sustained innovation and progress in the field.
Speaking on the success of the event, Sean Holt said, “The Annual Luncheon is not just a celebration of our industry’s accomplishments, but also a platform to foster new relationships, share ideas, and explore business opportunities. This year’s event was a testament to the industry’s resilience, innovation, and commitment to collaborate. With over 525 attendee’s I can now see why this is the must attend event for those working in the commercial interiors sector.”
In addition to the presentation of awards, the event culminated on an exhilarating note with a captivating performance by “Welsh of the West End,” renowned for their breathtaking acts featured on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent. Their interpretations of beloved musical theatre classics have amassed an impressive 18 million views online and spellbound audiences at prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall and the London Palladium.
