Are those designers who camp at events trustable?

Hi fellow homeowners, i recently visited an ID event with my SO for our upcoming home reno, there seems to be 6 to 8 design companies there. Many of them have a few designers just sitting at their booth, waiting for homeowner to come. From what i heard from my friends most good ID firms are already short of manpower for this period till the next few months. If these firms are so free to have staff at events booth, does it mean that they are not as good? Hope to hear some opinions thanks

I signed and up been to some of those events too, I found them quite a waste of time, only those few companies there who seemed just there to sell you their packages. Nothing much to compare too. Doing my research online seems more efficient, not just limited to these companies at the event and save more time too.

Thanks Joy, I will be dropping by an event this weekend. Will update again. Hope it is not disappointing (or time wasting)

Dropped by an event at OUE last weekend. Was looking to explore more ideas with my partner for our flat. Collecting keys in about 5 months time. Not very impressed with the designers at the event. We were enquiring about how can we create a space that is suitable for WFH, with the flexibility of a baby room in the future. A couple of the designers mainly just ask us what we want, and what kind of materials or vibes we looking for. We would prefer the designers who are able to propose designs to me instead, I mean that is what they suppose to specialise in, no?

Personally I will not recommend designers from event la, if they are so free to sit there wait for you to come means probably their business not good. Currently manpower shortage still got time to sit there meh 😂
