Decorex celebrated its thirtieth year this September – the best ever – with an announcement that CMP has acquired the exhibition for a sum in excess of 2m. Gary Hughes, Chief Executive of CMP Information, commented, “Decorex is a coveted brand which marks another strong event acquisition for CMP Information.”

CMP’s portfolio also consists of other ACID Accredited exhibitions, Interiors Birmingham, KBB, The National Floor Show, and an interiors event in Abu Dhabi, Interiors UAE.  Andy Braid, CMPi group director said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to welcome Decorex into the CMPi portfolio. We now have a superb, high end interior design show running in London to complement our strong design and interiors brands.’

Long time friend and supporter of ACID, Ian Thompson, Decorex’s Managing Director said,  ‘The entire Decorex team is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities presented by this new partnership in the UK and abroad. I am confident the news will be welcomed by all our exhibitors and the British interior design industry at large.’ Big thanks to ACID members Jan Cavelle Furniture and Allermuir who provided cutting edge and stylish furniture for our stand.  Award winning Hitch Mylius, designers and manufacturers of contemporary handmade products also kindly lent us stools and a table. Huge thanks to all.

Mark Heritage of Hammonds, an ACID Accredited law firm was on hand throughout the show to give one to one specialist IP advice.  Dids Macdonald’s Decorex highlight was spotting an ACID logo on the back of a London bus – thanks to Rebecca Scott’s high profile advertising campaign.  Including the ACID logo on both ads and publicity material really helps get the message out to the end user –  congratulations to Rebecca for exploiting the ACID logo in this way!
