Structural & Materials 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 Structural & Materials Story

For over 30 years DesignBUILD has been a commercial platform for the business of building and construction so it’s no surprise that the Structural and Materials is our largest show sector right at the heart of our event. 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.
