The 30th edition of INDEX, the international interiors trade fair, has been postponed to 2021. Originally due to take place in September, it will now be held from Monday 31st May to Wednesday 2nd June alongside the co-located events: WORKSPACE, The Leisure Show, and The Hotel Show.

Katie McBride, commercial director design, dmg events explains: “Over the past few months, we’ve been astounded by the positivity and resilience creative businesses have shown when facing the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19.”

“This global pandemic has impacted the interiors community in multiple ways, not least the ability to meet face-to-face and see first-hand the latest innovations in design and products. With this in mind, and considering the important role that INDEX plays as a platform to facilitate networking, trade, and business connections in the Middle East, today we are announcing the postponement of the event to 31st May – 2nd June 2021, at Dubai World Trade Centre.”

“I am deeply moved by the perseverance of all our clients and customers during the last three months,” McBride continues “and whilst the situation is slowly improving, moving to 2021 will ensure we can provide a safe environment and a truly international event that delivers real value to the interiors industry in the Middle East.”
