Nothings beats seeing products in person and talking to exhibitors about their products
Loved the Design show from start to finish and will be back next year!
NOTHING compares to the in-person experience and ability to see a product in action that Design Shows provide. Also very time saving to see/touch a lot of different products in the one place. Design Show Australia is a fabulous event and 100% worth attending.
A great opportunity to stay up to date on what’s going on in the industry, refresh our sourcing library, meet new suppliers & enjoy catching up with colleagues
A great way to stay abreast of leading design manufacturers & incorporating them into our growing portfolio.
Inspiring design trends captured in one space with meet the maker opportunities and informative discussions with industry professionals… a must in any designer’s calendar!
Like Christmas Day for Designers!
Design Show really opened our eyes as to how much potential was in our space. We connected to people who had never had dealings with us before, so this was really a win for us.
We have made some valuable connections we wouldn’t have made if we didn’t exhibit at the Design Show Australia.
Design Show Australia enabled us to present our lights to potential clients who would be otherwise unavailable. Such a finessed show, that really lent itself to inspiring designers and those in the field.
Best event for the Design industry I’ve ever attended. Best way to network with relevant professionals by far. Can’t wait to head to Melbourne.
The leads were amazing, they just kept coming! Very valuable show!
The response from the attendees exceeded our expectations! The right targeted audience for our products coupled with the atmosphere of the event made the 3 days a really enjoyable experience.
Design Show Australia provided us with extremely high quality leads, conversations and connections with other passionate people in the industry
