In conjunction with its 10th anniversary as Decoration + Design, Informa Exhibitions will unveil a new look Décor + Design Show at Furnitex, an Australian furniture and furnishings trade fair at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 10-13 July 2014.
Showcasing a select range of the latest high-end designs in interiors and soft furnishings, the rebranded Décor + Design will reflect a more sophisticated design aesthetic, and seek to attract broader industry appeal.
“Our industry is all about the latest trends and new products, and we are all constantly reinventing ourselves to ensure that we are current and relevant to our audiences,” says Joel Cooper, Group Exhibition Director of Informa Exhibitions.
“Décor + Design has been renamed to acknowledge the show’s wide appeal to a market that includes interior design, architecture, trend experts and stylists, with diverse exhibitors across the furniture, furnishings and design world.”
One of the highlights of the event will be VIVID – Vibrant Visions in Design, a design competition that will offer aspiring designers a launching pad into the furniture industry.
Emerging designers will present work in the Commercial, Concept, Student and Green categories, with awards to be announced on the opening day of Décor + Design.
The International Industry Seminar Series also returns this year, with a line-up of international and Australian presenters to headline the 2014 program. Presenters will be announced shortly.
