For over 30 years DesignBUILD has been a commercial platform for the business of building and construction so it’s no surprise that Construction & Building Materials is our largest show sector. 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.
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. Featured within the Construction & Building Materials sector, the Landscape & Outdoor representation has grown in both size and importance in line with our vision to reflect the entire design and build process.
Bathrooms and kitchens sell houses, so it’s no surprise that these two areas have seen significant growth at DesignBUILD over the past few years, almost doubling in size since 2016. Along with decorative finishes, coatings and surfaces, this sector is dedicated to showcasing the latest in products that champion good design from the outside in.
The benefits of building ‘smart’ in delivering buildings and infrastructure has become a focal point for the industry. Not only do advances in building technology enhance construction quality and delivery times, it has the potential to drastically minimise costs. This is reflected in our dedicated software and technology sector, from the latest in BIM technology to access control and smart building products – this is sector continues to drive innovation from the showfloor out.
