DesignBUILD Sectors

DesignBUILD covers the entire build and design process from landscape and outdoor right through to the interior fit-out.

In 2017 we return to Sydney with a easy to navigate show floor, which reflects a more curated atmosphere to enhance the impact of our exhibitor products and provide a more fluid flow for visitors.

Each sector is strategically aligned with industry partners to ensure we deliver compelling content for our core visitor groups and continue to showcase the best each sector of the industry has to offer.

Landscape & Outdoor


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.

And it’s still growing. Increasing visitor demand for product innovations such as the latest in pre-fabricating structures, new material technologies and compliant products is driving growth in this sector resulting in a show floor that is 40% larger than 2015 and 69% larger than our last Sydney event.
