The first ever INDE.Awards Gala kicked off with a special pre-event mixer for this year’s shortlist, judges and partners. Celebrating unity and community across the Asia Pacific design region.
July 4th, 2017
To open the festivities on June 30th, the INDE.Awards hosted a special pre-event cocktail reception just for this year’s official shortlist, judges and partners.
For a program that has been three intensive years in the making, the reception was beautifully captured with a heartfelt speech from Indesign Brand Director Dana Ciaccia and former Indesign & Habitus Editorial Director, Paul McGillick:
“For over 17 years, Indesign Media Asia Pacific has been building a network across our events, print and digital channels to connect all of the moving parts of our industry. Through unique platforms such as Indesign and Habitus, our focus has always been championing the best in architecture and design across the Asia pacific region, which is why INDE is such a proud accomplishment for us.
INDE has created a new benchmark for design awards across this diverse and dynamic corner of the world, its people, products, projects and ideas, and elevating this fact on a broader global stage.
In this room we have our fabulous shortlist, who we wish the best of luck to this evening. Our judges, some of whom have traveled across the globe to be here and have contributed a wealth of knowledge, perspective and experience to the program, and our partners who are actively invested in this region’s creative and visionary potential. Thank you for believing in our vision and joining us on this journey. INDE would not have been possible without the contribution of each individual in this room.
The reason you are all here tonight before the rest of our guests arrive is because we have worked along side you all over the years and recognise your leading work and contribution to greatness in architecture and design across our region and wanted to take this as an opportunity to allow you to meet each other, share your stories, experiences and ideas.”
