The organisers announced today that Clerkenwell Design Week will now be postponed until 25-27 May 2021. The event – a must attend in the annual calendar for workplace designers and managers – had originally been postponed from its regular May date for this year to 14-16 July. “This has not been a decision taken lightly, though above all else, the health and safety of CDW’s visitors, exhibitors, clients and staff remains the number one priority in light of these unprecedented times”, said the organisers in a statement. “CDW wants to ensure the festival can be delivered safely and with everyone’s best interests at the core of its approach.
“Postponing to next year secures the future of the UK’s leading independent design festival, allowing time for the design industry and its community to come together and deliver an even better festival in 2021.”
Clerkenwell Design Week also announced that Porsche will be its Headline Sponsor (maintaining its commitment to the event as it moves to next year), as well as introducing brand new venues and commissioning more exciting installations for 2021 across EC1 than ever before.
