Event registration


The Festival of Design & Innovation is open to the public on Friday 21 June, Saturday 22 June and Monday 24 June from 10am – 4pm.

The event showcases a number of final year student products and designs, and as a result, we need to protect the commercial value in our students’ ideas. For this reason FoDI is run as a ‘closed’ show – which means that visitors must register with us when they attend. As part of that registration, you will be asked to abide by the Admission Rules, which are a formal agreement setting out both what you must and may not do in return for being allowed admission to FoDI.

Visitors are welcome to attend without pre-registering, but the need for all attendees to agree to the FoDI Admission Rules means everyone registering online must individually fill out the registration form: we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but stress that it is a legal necessity.
