DesignBUILD is the only dedicated trade event for the design and building industry in Australia. The show runs every year and alternates between Sydney and Melbourne. DesignBUILD attracts a broad range of high quality visitors, including architects, specifiers, engineers, contractors, builders, sustainability experts and corporate consultants. The event provides a platform for exhibitors to showcase their innovations and products, benefit from face-to-face interaction with clients and potential customers, and view the latest local and international trends. Each year, DesignBUILD aims to bring the best of the industry together in one location for three days of innovation, networking, education and inspiration.
DesignBUILD 2014 ran from 2-4 April in Melbourne. The show was a huge success, and was the result of collaboration between industry associations, exhibitors, consultants, visitors and the show team. This year we worked with leading industry associations including the Australian Institute of Architects, Building Designers Association of Victoria, and the Australian Construction Industry Forum to bring you a robust Industry Insights seminar series and other exciting feature areas.
In 2014 DesignBUILD focussed strongly on sustainability. As well as enlarging the 2013 feature Future Living to become Project Next: Sustainability by Cameron Rosen, the inaugural Sustainability Day was launched on Thursday 3 April. Five dedicated seminar sessions focused on the topic, a Sustainability Trail of sustainable products on the show floor was created, and Cameron Rosen presented an evening address on the Project Next feature stand.
