Pulse: Design Trade Show

A showcase of inspiring, market-ready design products by UAL students and alumni.

University of the Arts London (UAL) will present work by 12 rising stars of design at this year’s Pulse trade show (Olympia from 13-15 May 2018). The UAL stand will feature in the Launchpad area of Pulse, which only shows products from up-and-coming brands.

UAL students and alumni are behind all 12 of the design businesses being shown. Many have never exhibited at a trade show before, making the UAL stand the place to discover the names to watch in design.

Now in its 12th year, UAL’s partnership with Pulse provides students and alumni with a unique opportunity to build their business contacts and take orders from national and international trade buyers. The 2018 UAL stand will feature the following designers and brands:
