Since 1986, Event has designed large-scale exhibitions, spaces and experiences for world-class institutions, museums and organisations across the globe. Recognised as a pacesetter in the field of museum and exhibition design, we push the boundaries of existing practice and explore new ways to connect with audiences.

From identifying an overarching vision and creating concepts, to designing and constructing the physical space, our experienced in-house team and wider network of experts have helped take projects from conceptualisation and funding application through to design and realisation, with award-winning results. Always the innovator, we pride ourself on consistent ingenuity in design and storytelling and our expertise in build and project management.

Today, Event is a multi-disciplinary practice with a 50-strong team composed of architects, interior designers, creative writers, curators, content designers, interpretive planners, graphic designers, product designers and project managers. They are led by a team of senior experts who bring clear leadership to internal management processes and projects across the studios.

The successful delivery of more than 250 major projects worldwide, has given our team stock of creative acumen, insight and knowledge unparalleled in the profession. Our visions for projects such as the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, POLIN: Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Titanic Belfast, Oman Across Ages Museum, National Army Museum in London and the Hans Christian Andersen House of Fairytales Museum in Odense, has subsequently led to the selection of globally-renowned architects. Our recently completed project – The Box, Plymouth – is a new cultural destination in the heart of Plymouth City with active and engaging galleries, welcoming social spaces and community facilities. A ‘must-see’ visitor attraction, The Box is now a landmark hub that shares the extraordinary history and collections of Plymouth and the South West with the world.

“Development for The Box was just a lovely and easy process. Never once did I feel – as I often do elsewhere – that my interests weren’t being put first or that my money was not being spent wisely.

We instantly fell in love with the level of creativity of Event and I think the results are stunning! Huge integrity too. From the exhibition design, to graphic design, project management and the install team, everyone was professional. What has been designed and built is incredible. A true genius of works and technical design but with real flair”
