Landscape & Outdoor at a glance

DesignBUILD has 4 distinct show floor categories to enable attendees to navigate their way around the show floor. Each sector is strategically aligned with industry partners to ensure we deliver compelling content for our core visitor groups.

Our Landscape & Outdoor story

Australians share a strong bond with our outdoor spaces and both urban and rural landscapes so it comes as no surprise that there is increasing interest and innovation in how we design and build our outdoor spaces. With this in mind, DesignBUILD created a dedicated Landscape Zone in 2015, this sector has grown in both size and importance in line with DesignBUILD’s goal of being a true reflection of the entire design and build process.

Be part of an industry event created by the landscape industry

We work closely with each of our interior partners to deepen our understanding of their members and subscriber challenges, interests and needs so that we can provide solutions on the show floor.

Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA)


As one of our strategic partners of 2017, AILA have played a key role in the ongoing development of DesignBUILD. AILA sits on our ongoing advisory panel and actively promote our event to their 1,200 members. They also work alongside DesignBUILD to provide speakers for keynotes and our daily interdisciplinary learn + lunch panel sessions to ensure our content is relevant and in line with industry needs.

Planning Institute of Australia


We are delighted to welcome Planning Institute Australia (PIA) as a strategic partner for the first time for DesignBUILD 2017. An attended benefit of this partnership is the co-location of the PIA’s National Congress, attracting an additional 500+ delegates planning professionals to the ICC Sydney this May. Working with the PIA we have created a series of exclusive tours and functions specifically for this burgeoning target audience. As part of the partnership DesignBUILD will be promoted to PIA members as part of the official fringe program. The institute will also provide speakers and participants for our interdisciplinary panel sessions.
