The exhibition showcases a wide range of interior products including kitchen and bathroom equipment, office and retail furniture, homeware, technology, lighting, fit-out services, contract furniture, surface materials, and furnishing textiles. Alongside the exhibition, INDEX Dubai hosts a variety of live demonstrations, specialised workshops, and conferences.

There’s a sufficiently rich support programme in addition to the array of products and services on display that promotes knowledge exchange. The information events at the trade fair are a consistent source of inspiration, insights and new ideas. 

The INDEX Design Talks is one of the key events at the fair, and this year promises to be more vivacious than ever before. The talks will focus on how to nurture young talent in the interiors industry and will feature inspiring interior designers, renowned regional architects, and prominent creative thinkers. Sessions will be bold and thought-provoking, touching on topics like “The influence of AI in design” and “The evolution of Metaverse in design”.
