NEWS ROUND UP

Dröm UK were lucky enough to be finalists in the SBID International Design Awards and were therefore invited to attend the various networking opportunities that the SBID hosted in the days leading up to the Awards ceremony.

Kicki Carlsson, CEO Dröm UK – SBID 20-20 Networking Event

This started with a table at the 20-20 Networking Event held at The Dorchester.   The SBID had succeeded in bringing together top designers from all over the world and we had appointments to see 10 other companies and spend 15 minutes with them each, although one company stayed for 2 sessions!  We made some new friends and also bumped into some clients we had worked with before.   One of our new contacts has a number of spa projects across Europe which is a perfect fit with Dröm UK.

Kicki Carlsson & Barry Smith – House of Lords

The following day there was a reception at the House of Lords for Award Nominees.   This was a great chance for us to get to know some of the other companies nominated for Awards, including those from further afield such as New Zealand and Beirut.  We made some great new contacts who we will hopefully work with in the future.   The House of Lords was such a special occasion, a great place to host a business function with beautiful views over the River Thames.

Finally, it was Awards day! Designers, Architects and their guests met at the Ballroom in the Dorchester for a gala ceremony, compered by Ken Bruce, the Radio 2 stalwart!   There were some amazing entries and deserved winners.   SBID Fellow of the Year 2016 was awarded to Eve Pollard for her contribution to journalism and for helping women earn the right to be treated equally in the workplace. Although Dröm UK didn’t win our category, it was still a fabulous afternoon!  Thank you to the SBID for making everyone feel so welcome – see you next year!

 

New Employees

We are delighted to announce the addition of two new members of staff.:

Sam Smith is the newest member of our Install team and is enjoying furthering his carpentry skills on our various high end sites.

Ross Francis has joined our Accounts Department and is currently studying for his AAT level 3 qualification.   He is a massive Chelsea FC fan which goes down well with most of the staff here!

We hope they both have  long and happy careers with Dröm.

 

Athletics success

Dröm UK are proud to sponsor two British decathletes, Ashley Bryant and Dylan Carlsson-Smith.    We were even prouder when they were both recently selected for the British Athletics Combined Events International Indoor Match taking place in Prague, Czech Republic on January 28th and 29th.

Showroom Video

Our showroom is a stunning showcase of what the talented team of Dröm UK designers can create.    Our clients find it very inspiring when they visit, helping them to decide on various rooms, finishes and accessories.    However we wanted to take the Showroom to a wider audience and commissioned a video to help.   See it here first:
