Dwell on Design, an asset of Dwell Media, will now be owned by UK-based Informa and run by Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction and Real Estate.
The agreement formalizes a partnership between Dwell and Informa, which aims to expand the scope and international presence and influence of Dwell on Design, according to the companies.
Integral to the Dwell on Design experience is the on-stage content, which will continue to be curated by Dwell Media—with Amanda Dameron, Dwell's executive vice president of content, leading the editorial team. Since its inception in 2006, the content themes have expanded from the show floor to offsite events at Dwell Design Week.
“It has long been the plan for the evolution of Dwell on Design to include international iterations of what is truly America’s largest design event,” said Michela O’Connor Abrams, Dwell's president and CEO. “Paramount to achieving that level of growth was finding the right partner. I am confident that we have done just that with Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction and Real Estate.”
With the acquisition of Dwell on Design, Informa adds to its roster of over 150 events worldwide, including the International Surface Show East and West, and continues to expand its shows in the design arena.
Dwell on Design NY will be held Oct. 2 to 4, at Clarkson Square in SoHo in New York. Dwell on Design LA 2016 will take place June 24 to 26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
