About the Organisers
Established in 2003, Media 10 Limited is the most decorated media and events company in the UK.
Media 10 Limited 十媒（上海）会展有限公司, the privately owned business, based in Essex, employs 270 talented staff and has fast become one of the leading players in the industry, running some of the most iconic and successful events and magazines in the country.
A growing portfolio of 23 live events means that 1 in every 55 people in the UK will attend one of Media 10’s shows, which cover subjects ranging from design, interiors, lifestyle and construction; distributed across events such as Grand Designs Live, Ideal Home Show, 100% Design, Clerkenwell Design Week, 100% Optical, Design London, Destination Star Trek, UK Construction Week and The Cake & Bake Show. Furthermore, the company has seen international expansion with the widely successful venture into China with Design Shanghai; and South Africa with Design Joburg.
It was the acquisition of the Ideal Home Show that has been one of the most startling and impressive – it is widely recognised that Media 10 saved the Ideal Home Show in 2010 when the event was severely threatened. The show, which is the oldest exhibition in the world running for 108 years, was transformed and rejuvenated; it became multi-award winning, leading to an astonishing positive effect for the industry: now, the Ideal Home Show runs five times a year, with the main event being complemented by Manchester, Scotland and two Christmas shows. Additionally, Media 10 was the only company selected to organise the Coronation Festival at the Gardens of the Buckingham Palace for HM Queen Elizabeth II, which demonstrates the company’s unrivalled understanding of British and Chinese markets.
