About the Organisers
Established in 2003, Media 10 Star Limited is the most decorated media and events company in the UK.
Media 10 Star Limited 十媒星慧（上海）会展有限公司, the privately owned business, employs over 300 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 30 live events means that 1 in every 55 people in the UK will attend one of Media 10 Star’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 Star 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 a multi-award winning event, leading to an astonishing positive effect on 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 Star are the proud organisers of the Coronation Festival, held in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace.
In 2014, Media 10 Star launched Design Shanghai, which in 2017 was awarded Best International trade show by the AEO. In 2017 Media 10 Star launched the Ideal Home Show, and Best of British in Shanghai to critical acclaim. In 2018 Best of British was shortlisted by the AEO for the accolade of “Best Trade Show Launch”, and was the winner of “Best Consumer Marketing Campaign”, demonstrating the success of this hybrid showcase of British excellence.
Media10 Star’s dominance of the creative events and exhibitions industry, together with their success in both the UK and China demonstrates the company’s unrivalled understanding of British and Chinese markets.
