About Design Show Australia

Design Show Australia is the essential exhibition for design, architecture and fit-out. Whether your projects are commercial, workplace, retail, hospitality or residential, Design Show Australia is where you’ll find the most comprehensive showcase of products and materials for interiors.

Design Show gathers architects and designers with developers and industry tastemakers for a sensory experience. The event brings together top exhibiting brands and trade professionals who specify and purchase products for clients.

On the last day, the show opens to the community to inspire home remodeling projects, provide access to resources for their interiors, and to connect with architects and designers for their projects.

Who can attend?

Design Show Australia is open to design professionals and consumers.

The first two days are restricted to trade professionals working in architecture, design, property, construction, retail, and industry suppliers.

Anyone not working within these sectors is not eligible to attend on trade days. Children under 16 are not permitted. Babies and toddlers (aged 0-2) are permitted, only if they are in a pram or carrier at all times.

The last day of the show is open to the general public and students.
