19th September 2018

Welcome Reception from 7:00pm

Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai


The evolution of the Middle East’s interior design industry continues unabated. Original and innovative interiors are becoming increasingly commonplace across the region, as a host of talented individuals continue to push boundaries and challenge the status quo.

Long-held misconceptions about the maturity and sophistication of the region’s interior design industry are being irreversibly broken down, allowing the Middle East to stand alongside its international peers when it comes to world-class design. With versatility and variety on its side, the region’s design industry is at a unique phase in its development. Now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate the ambition, imagination and quality of interior design in the Middle East.

The Commercial Interior Design Awards pay tribute to the projects, interior design firms and designers making their mark on the region’s interior design industry. As befitting an industry no longer in its infancy, the awards herald work that displays original thinking, creative breadth and a willingness to stray from tried and tested formulas.

The 11th annual Commercial Interior Design Awards were held on Wednesday 13th September 2017 and welcomed a record number of guests with 910 industry professionals attending the awards at the Joharah Ballroom in the Madinat Jumeirah.

In the year 2018, the Commercial Interior Design Awards will be held on 19th September 2018 and promises to be the biggest event yet, with the design community in the Middle East gathering for the most glamorous celebration of the year.
