Welcome to the new DesignBUILD – bringing together Australia’s architecture, building, construction and design communities in one essential event. Always evolving and looking to the future – DesignBUILD is more relevant than ever before.
We have reimagined our annual event with a renewed focus on showcasing the best of quality Australian brands, products and sustainable solutions, as well as giving you the chance to discover new markets, create new opportunities and build connections across the entire building life cycle.
Reimmerse yourself in the built environment
We’re covering all bases when it comes to the built environment, and next year, DesignBUILD will be locating with not one, but two events, Total Facilities and The Built Environment (BE) Summit. Bringing you even more trusted brands, products and innovations from conception to construction and beyond, you’ll gain access and insights into new markets, including with our new Digital Building Zone. It’s all happening at DesignBUILD.
Reunite with the industry
Make new connections and re-establish ties as we unite the built environment under one roof. You'll have the opportunity to form profitable and long-lasting business relationships and partnerships, plus mingle with over 6,000 of your peers from across the planning, design, building and operations lifecycles. Don't forget about our welcome reception on the first night of DesignBUILD, the perfect place to connect with leading brands and professionals.
Remastering for the future
Hear from renowned industry influencers about the trends and strategies shaping your industry from our two education theatres. Our Design + Build theatre will host discussions tackling the key issues and big-picture issues of the building and construction industry, whilst our new DCW Theatre will not only deep dive into and promote innovation, efficiency and connectivity for the industry, but will be the launching pad for the UK's foray into Australia with Digital Construction Week.
Australia’s home to the built environment
