Just because we know you’ll be hungry for more, high tail it to Infinity Commercial Furniture (in partnership with polytec and Laine) to explore their new catalogue in situ, while you sneak in a scoop of Messina (serving until 4pm) and a cheeky cocktail from local legends Archie Rose.
Wind down at Steelcase, where you can explore their seating gallery and relax on their furniture while you sip mulled wine and warm up thanks to the deluxe fireplace range from hosting exhibitor Ignite Fireplace Studio.
If you’d like to loop back around and get yourself back to the CBD, our final destination has to be Stylecraft’s commercial showroom, where a journey up the lift takes you from a bustling street to an oasis of a workplace showroom, complete with panoramic city views and a sneaky DJ spinning some hits.
