DesignBUILD Melbourne opens in just over a month at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 27-29 June 2012, with all new Tool Demo Stations, the first interactive Innovation Alley and plenty of tool suppliers on show.

DesignBUILD 2012 is also the largest ever expo and has a huge Green Building Zone, as well as an interactive innovation alley, which means visitors can view new tools and products before deciding which exhibitors they want to visit.

"Technology continually innovates the way we design and build, including the products we specify and install, as well as the tools we use. We know that the industry is busy and every minute you’re not onsite, you’re not earning money but DesignBUILD brings together all the latest innovations, so you can see all the ideas to build smarter, without wasting time or money," says Matus.

According to Matus, visitors will be able to see the latest building materials and advancements in sustainable design technologies to ensure they are staying competitive in the market.
