What you are saying
As a result of exhibiting at Maison Jan 2014, I have received orders from ABC Home in New York and Harrods London. It's too early yet to determine the outcome of exhibiting at Tokyo Interior Lifestyle but I met some really good contacts there. Thank you for all your help.
In two decades of exhibiting at the ICFF, Karin-Beate Phillips and the participating companies of the BEDG contingent have been instrumental in cementing the ICFF’s position as North America’s primary event for global contemporary design. We have grown together over the years, and look forward to doing so as the market for great modern products continues to expand in new directions in the U.S. and around the world.

With so much that can go wrong, we've always found exhibiting with BEDG a remarkably painless and hassle free way to cope with overseas trade shows. Their organisation is superb and thanks to Karine, Pamela and the rest of the team for all their hard work on our behalf.
BEDG have been incredible, without their support and expertise I would not have been showing at Maison & Objet this year . The show was a great success for my brand and I can't wait to continue showing through BEDG in the future. I am forever grateful. Thank you!
BEDG have been a great help in getting us to our first European show at Maison & Objet. We met lots of great new contacts, retailers and specifiers and look forward to future shows.
Thanks to the superb work done by both Pamela and Karin we have been able to branch out into new markets not only in the EU but in North and Latin America. The BEDG is well organised, efficient and a source of great expertise. We hope to exhibit with them again in the near future.
With the help of the BEDG, I was able to exhibit at Maison et Objet in Paris, where I made many contacts with the European press and secured orders from shops in England, France, Germany and Denmark, as well as interest from the Far East. Many thanks to the BEDG for making all this possible.
BEDG provide an amazing service. We've received excellent advise on trade shows, product development and getting our product to market. The time and effort they put it is extraordinary - UK business is very lucky to be have this group fighting its corner.

I just wanted to say thank you for taking us again to NY for the ICFF. I've had a very enthusiastic response from people regarding my acid etched work and I'll hopefully be working with a showroom called Design Lush in the New York Design Centre. I've actually had offers to show my work in 4 showrooms in New York but I feel Design Lush is the best suited for my work. I've also had 2 London design galleries approach me to show my work. I thought the show was very good this year, many people that came to the stand said they found the British section the most exciting of the show.
The BEDG were instrumental into introducing my work into New York City , and with their vast knowledge and experience in exhibitions and promotion made my show a great success and my work was very well received by America and my new found clients.
My experience as an Artist painter of the British European Design Group company was fantastic, well managed exciting project at the Bargehouse, London- England. Exposure to a wide audience of Black Artists in the Uk and abroad as far as the Bahamas, Trinindad Dominica and Africa. The standad of the work simply amazing.
The BEDG gave me the greatest opportunity in my professional life, I exhibited with them at ICFF New York in may 2012. The exposure to the industry, the contacts and the rest of the BEDG members who exhibited were the best motivators to keep going, never stop making and consider making life as a creative.

The BEDG, through their area at the ICFF, provided the perfect platform to launch Plumen in North America. Having had a lot of interest from the States, it was really important for us to get out there. However, with a small team and even smaller budget it is very hard to do. The BEDG not only made it possible, they made it easy. The preparations for, and running of, the show were simple and straightforward. Whenever there was even the slightest problem either Pamela or Karin were on hand to sort it out. I'm looking forward to another successful show at M&O in Sept. 2011.
I am very grateful for the support of the BEDG, without which, I would not have exhibited in my first overseas trade show. Having shown in New York, I now have orders and contacts from the US and around the world. Many thanks to Pamela and Karin for their help.
It was great for Dupenny to have the opportunity to exhibit to a whole new market in the US. Being part of the BEDG was less stressful than going it alone because we had the support of the whole group who were in the same boat as us. Still early days since the show but we're positive we will see a lot more business from the US and we hope to return for more fun next year!
The BEDG gave us the opportunity of a lifetime to exhibit at the prestigious ICFF frequented by the best american and international buyers and specifiers. We are so thankful to have been able to showcase our work on this platform and could not have done so without the support of the BEDG. Thank you!
The ICFF 2011 in New York was a first for me and it was a very well presented and attended show. The attention to detail demonstrated by the BEDG was outstanding. The orders placed and contacts made were of a high calbre.
Without the assistance of BEDG it would simply have been impossible for us to exhibit at ICFF. It has been a wonderful experience and a very successful show. Thanks!
Exhibiting under the BEDG umbrella has proved a helpful, inspiring and successful way to tackle overseas trade shows. Thank you Karin and Pamela for your support.
The BEDG is a unique organisation with a passion for design at the heart of their foundation. I have exhibited with the group over the last decade and the BEDG have, and continue to be, an integral support structure for my company and many others alike. Perhaps an unsung hero in the journey of the designer and maker but never to be underestimated for their strength, determination and vision in supporting emerging and established British talent.
I am a huge fan of the BEDG! They are well organised, hard working, commercially savvy, artistically sensitive and all round great set of people to work with. I enjoyed a very successful exhibition with them at Maison Objet in September 2010 and will be working closely with them on many future exhibitions.
I am very happy to confirm that we successfully signed a major design contract [...] involving the design of a new high speed 350kmh EMU train. I would like to thank the British European Design Group for their initial introduction and their tireless assistance to Priestman Goode in negotiating a contract of this importance. Thank you again and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with the British European Design Group.
The BEDG has given me the opportunity to exhibit in international trade shows. Due to their help and support I have shown in New York, Frankfurt, Paris and Prague. I have gained international business through these trade shows and very much appreciate the hard work that the BEDG put into promoting British design abroad.
BEDG have been instrumental in helping promote my business abroad in the US and Europe. Karin and Pam are extremely helpful and their knowledge and advise is invaluable. Trade missions abroad are stressful enough and the BEDG team make you feel like one big family!!
