Australia’s premier design events – Design Show Australia and ArchiBuild Expo – will come together under one roof for the first time at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 15 to 17 June, 2023.

It will be the first Design Show in Melbourne, with the original event being hosted in Sydney last year, and the inaugural ArchiBuild show. Presented by ArchiPro, the two events will run side by side, bringing together over 8,000 professionals and 250 exhibitors from the interior design, architecture and building industries.

“We’re proud to be inspiring the largest group of design professionals in Australia with top brands, the latest product technology and the trends shaping interior, architecture and building projects,” event director, Andy Vaughan said.

“We’re passionate about creating a sustainable future, so our inaugural ArchiBuild Expo will host a dedicated Sustainability Pavilion, as well as must-hear talks at both events that explore challenges and solutions for sustainable design and manufacturing.”

As the country’s largest and most influential exhibition for interior design solutions, Design Show Australia includes design features such as the Collarts Entrance created by two interior design students, as well as Australia’s Next Top Designer competition, presented by WORKSHOPPED and sponsored by Cult, to shine a spotlight on designers, makers and creatives in the categories of furniture, lighting and objects/art. 

There will also be curated design talks with three stages featuring panel discussions and interviews, exploring key themes of technology, sustainability and local manufacturing.

As the first event dedicated to architects, developers, builders and specifiers, ArchiBuild Expo will present cutting-edge products, technology and solutions for residential and commercial projects.

The Sustainability Pavilion will provide a platform for attendees to navigate the landscape of sustainable building manufacturers, showcasing the latest sustainable products. Curated in partnership with GreenTag, the Pavilion offers sustainable solutions for architects and builders. The expo will include a custom feature from House of Bamboo, as well as carbon-neutral flooring from Interface.

At the ArchiBuild Bar, custom made with SmartStone’s low silica engineered NewGen stone, consisting of 56% recycled material, attendees can get up close and personal with the scratch, stain and heat resistant surface.

A variety of panel discussions and talks will feature across two stages, exploring the challenges and opportunities facing architects and builders. Architects can gain RAIA Refuel CPD through attendance at the CPD stage.
