About the event

We are pleased to present Feeling Good 3, the latest in our series on Wellbeing in Interiors. If you have been to our two previous events, you will not want to miss our exciting new topics; if you have not attended before, come and hear what all the talk is about!


The Feeling Good series brings together engineers, Interior Designers, Quantity Surveyors, Architects, Academics, Suppliers, Manufacturers and Healthcare experts to examine how a growing body of scientific research can add value to the interiors industry, promote human wellbeing and enhance corporate growth.


Evidence Based Design (EBD), now well accepted in healthcare interiors, analyses how a well conceived physical environment can promote wellbeing. Every party within the interiors industry has an opportunity now to implement this research and provide long term benefits for individuals and organisations. By applying EBD to places of work, education, retail, leisure and homes, the industry has the chance to increase and sustain wellbeing for all.


Many design factors have a calculable impact on interior occupants and ultimately the client’s bottom line and up to know we have heard experts share knowledge on acoustics, colour, materials, ventilation, design for the senses, occupancy surveys, valuing wellbeing and following this latest event there are still issues we aim to cover! Job satisfaction, increased productivity, higher occupancy/lower absenteeism can result from applying knowledge that derives from an increasing body of research in this field. The Feeling Good series looks at all these factors and helps you to apply scientific and financial research to your line of work.


This series will be of benefit to:
• Consultants wanting to obtain scientific evidence to share with clients in support of new design proposals
• Owner/occupiers planning property improvements and looking for robust knowledge on impacts and anticipated returns
• Suppliers/Manufacturers to increase knowledge and apply data to meet industry’s growing demand for products that cater for human wellbeing
• Facility Managers and HR professionals looking to improve efficiency and boost morale
