UBM moves ARC Show to Excel for all-in-one design event

arc show Lighting RESIZE

UBM Built Environment will relocate its ARC Show for the architectural lighting industry to Excel London from 2013 as part of its new May Design Series.
 
The ARC Show was formerly held at the Business Design Centre (BDC) until 2009, when it moved to Earls Court. The show returns to the North London venue in 2011 and 2012 but will now shift to Excel London in order to be co-located with UBM Built Environment’s kbb London, its first London edition of Interiors, and the DX show, which debuts next year and is aimed at integrating interior design and technology.
 
The organiser also revealed a new partnership with lighting publication mondo*arc, which will assume full sales responsibility and work closely with UBM to shape and develop event content.
 
“While The ARC Show has successfully brought an intimate collection of key UK and international lighting suppliers together, the scale of the show does not permit for a true exploration of the lighting industry,” brand director Andrew Vaughan said.
 
“We look forward to taking with us all the enhanced educational and creative content that the BDC has allowed us to incorporate within the show and we’re confident this is the right move to ensure The ARC Show retains its position as the lighting event for the design industry.”
 
East London’s reputation as a creative hub, along with capital improvements and regeneration around Excel and the venue’s larger footprint, were all factors in the move, Vaughan said.
 
The 2013 May Design Series aims to cater to all the needs of London-based architectural, retail, interior design and property communities who buy and specify for projects globally, UBM stated.
 
“Incorporating The ARC Show within the May Design Series event will give lighting companies an opportunity to be part of a large London design event that will allow them to communicate with designers and architects who wouldn’t normally visit a small lighting show,” mondo*arc editor Paul James added.
