returns for its second edition, 29-30 August at Barangaroo, Sydney to present a program that is both business-oriented and learning-driven. 

What is is a one-of-its-kind boutique specifier event catering to Australian commercial design sectors – from workplace to hospitality, education and healthcare. Through its multi-faceted program, 2019 facilitates profound connections with every link in the specification chain, from developer to designer, architect, project manager, consultant and end-user. The program features over 40 of the country’s most prominent architectural and design suppliers – browse the full list here. For attendees, this means an opportunity to sample and source the very latest products and innovations geared toward solving design contexts.

What makes unique?

Unlike the plethora of trade exhibitions that we’re used to seeing, turns the traditional exhibition format on its head. The event focuses on building deeper connections through open exhibitor showcases located alongside dedicated meeting zones that allow you to step off-stand for a quick conversation or connect for a pre-arranged meet-up. These relaxed and open hubs are served by all-day coffee and catering – to keep the conversations flowing.

Who will be there?

Built on the premise of future-focused design that makes an impact, is attended by the industry’s most prominent thought leaders, movers, shakers and change-makers. Delegates will represent a diverse mix of providers from industries including commercial design, development and construction, hospitality, education, healthcare, property and real estate. Last year’s delegate list featured the likes of Arup, Build Corp, BVN Architecture, Colliers International, Dexus, Gray Puksand, Macquarie Group, Rubicon Design and Construct.

What’s in it for me? is not your everyday design trade exhibition. Also, it’s definitely not an event catering purely to architects and interior designers. The built environment is made up of key players ranging from facility managers, government specifiers, real estate brokers, hospitality venue owners, managers and more. The idea of is to bring everyone under one roof for the entirety of the event.
