What is FRONT?

FRONT reinvents the traditional exhibition format to provide you with the essential tools and products for future specification.

Held over two days, FRONT is a commercial, B2B event for sectors including commercial, hospitality, education and healthcare.

In 2019 FRONT continues to deliver the most innovative, forward-thinking products relevant to commercial interior designers, architects, property developers and consultants.

FRONT’s one-of-a-kind format strips back the distractions to put the focus on doing business and sourcing the best solutions for your future projects.

Through purpose-designed meeting spaces supported by all-day catering, FRONT puts the emphasis on building connections and forging enduring relationships.

With a focus on learning and knowledge-sharing, the FRONT Forum provides two full days of expertise and education, with keynotes, panel discussions and CPD presentations – all designed to position you at the very forefront of commercial design.
