A number of top-tier, New Zealand design brands have already reserved their place in the pavilion, and have shared their support and enthusiasm for the event:

“We have been watching the Australian market for quite some time, kind of like a kid looking over the neighbours gate wanting to go and play! Design Show Australia had been on our hit list, and the chance to collaborate with NZTE and other great kiwi brands made the opportunity even sweeter. It’s an exciting and encouraging way for us to step into our first international trade show.” Lisa Thompson, CEO, Wilson & Dorset.

Australia’s Premier Design Event

Design Show Australia is the leading design event for interiors, architecture and fit-out, and the industry’s trusted meeting place to showcase and discover curated and authentic design.

It is held concurrently with the prestigious ArchiBuild Expo, a leading showcase for architectural building products and systems, and the newly launched Kitchen + Bath Show, Australia’s premier design trade show, dedicated to the thriving kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and home storage industry.

This strategic co-location, along with the international pavilion, will undoubtedly be a significant draw, and represents a significant step towards becoming the global design expo that Australia needs.
