Australia’s largest and longest running interior design and architec­tural trade event designEX will take place in the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from Thursday 30 May to Saturday 1 June.

The exhibition is celebrating its 25th anniversary of providing a platform for designers to share their knowledge and experience with the younger generation in the industry.

designEX will offer interior designers, architects, specifiers and the design community three days featuring a seminar series with leading international and local speakers, hands on workshops, independently curated exhibitions, Hives and Nest and an array of new 'strategic alliances'.

"Taking its lead from key industry advisors and supported by an advisory panel of industry experts who provide guidance and direction for the show, designEX continues to be the ultimate networking platform and place to be seen for brands and professionals alike."

Lauren Ebbeck, group exhibition director of Diversified Exhibitions said:

“Good design is good business. designEX has been such a successful event because of our strong focus on business outcomes for our audience, both visitors and exhibitors. We invite you all to immerse yourself in this celebration of the Australian design experience, redis­cover designEX in 2013 and help shape the next 25 years of Australian design.”
