The perfect platform for professionals to find and discover new products, materials, solution ideas and also, the latest industry trends. On April the show will celebrate its 29th edition and Ali Mead, DesignBUILD Event Manager, has answered us some questions about the novelties we can expect and more.
What's new for the next edition of Design Build?
DesignBUILD has been running for 29 years and in that time we’ve been able to witness true innovation in the Australia built environment. This year we have quite literally gone back to the drawing board are excited to bring a new look to the event, full of new products, materials and solutions to ensure our audience stay at the forefront of our industry.
We’ve also seen the growth of the importance of niche areas within the design and build process and with this in mind we have lunched 2 brand new zones for the event. Our new Landscape & Outdoor Area will be dedicated to the promotion of outdoor design and offer an inspiring showcase of the latest exterior products for landscape architects and landscape designers. We are also introducing a zone dedicated to all elements of interior fixture and fittings, DesignBUILD Interiors which will feature a collective of authentic design-led products to inspire the Australian Design community in their next project.
