Taking place Thursday 29 – Friday 30 August at Barangaroo, Sydney, FRONT.design turns the traditional trade exhibition format on its head. In collaboration with FRONT’s Ambassadors and advisory panel, Indesign Media with Architecture & Design has built a program that is both business-oriented and learning-driven. From showcasing new and interesting ways of specifying products, to offering valuable learning, knowledge sharing and relationship building opportunities – FRONT.design has you covered.
Here are six reasons to put FRONT.design in the calendar and take your practice and projects to the next level.
Enjoy unprecedented access to industry influencers and leading brands. In 2018, FRONT showcased over 100 suppliers from the furniture, flooring, lighting, building materials industry and beyond. Attendees topped the 2000 mark with delegates from the likes of Dexus, Arup, Australia Post, Woolworths, Westpac, Sydney Harbour Tunnel, Sydney Institute of Technology, QIC, Mirvac and more.
FRONT.design 2019 will provide the most advanced commercial solutions for a range of new-age design challenges. View innovative and future-focused products designed for commercial applications – we’ve put together a quick preview to get you started here.
Tackle the technical topics with our program of CPD presentations, which run alongside our two-day FRONT.design Forum. Consisting of 10 panel discussions, site tours and Q&As, the FRONT.design Forum explores hot button issues within sectors of workplace, healthcare and ageing, hospitality, and city and culture.
We’ll host you for morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and cocktail hour. Through designated meeting zones and a dedicated business lounge, FRONT.design creates a relaxed and welcoming environment where you can plan meetings and bump into key members of industry.
Our 2019 venue at International Towers’ Tower 3 in Barangaroo is a stunning commercial precinct offering both the scale and design quality that speaks to FRONT.design’s commitment to community, innovation and creative commercial outcomes. Even better, it’s just a four-minute walk from Wynard Station in Sydney’s CBD.
Registering early will connect you straight into the FRONT.design program. Book in your FRONT.design Forum sessions before it’s too late. Last year saw 600 attendees registered in the first couple of weeks alone and talks were booked out weeks before the event, so you don’t want to wait!
