5. Unique footprint and all the perks that go with it

What has long set Saturday Indesign apart is its unique footprint, leaving behind the cold stark environment of a trade hall, for the welcoming and authentic experience of entering a brand’s home, their showroom and like all good hosts, our exhibitors have some exceptional hospitality planned to treat your senses throughout the day. 

With all there is to learn, see and experience, you may like to take stock and recharge along the way. Luckily, our exhibitors are planning to take your creative experience to the next level, matching the creative intensity with equal parts hospitality.
