With the launch of the inaugural FRONT event this 9 – 10 August, Indesign Media brings dynamism and a truly innovative spirit to Sydney’s iconic Carriageworks venue.

Developed in consultation with key influencers within the changing landscape of commercial design, development, and construction, the event promises to connect professionals with the knowledge and network to succeed in tomorrow’s commercial sector.

Burgeoning local talent, new technology, and a dynamic property market mean that the Australian commercial landscape is changing. The stakes are higher, the projects are bigger, and competition is driving creativity to an all-time high.

The industry itself has evolved: interdisciplinary boundaries are dissolving as professionals across design, construction, property development, and facilities management unite to form a radically collaborative ecosystem for Australian commercial development.

FRONT bridges the interdisciplinary divide to bring together major players across the commercial design and development ecosystem.

Whether you’re an architect, interior designer, or property or construction professional, FRONT gives you vital time in front of key industry players and fellow innovators who can help you build the connections you want and get the cut-through you need.

Specially designed to foster strong exhibitor-visitor connections and maximise networking opportunities, FRONT’s unique floor plan gathers the industry’s best and brightest and places you in the heart of the action.
