After a year in incubation, day one of FRONT set a high benchmark for collaboration and innovation in the architecture and design space. Across a series of seminars, product exhibitions and networking, FRONT delivered on its promise: the best in product, the latest in knowledge, the most successful in forging connections.
August 9th, 2018
It’s not over yet! FRONT continues until 10 August. Join us tomorrow to be a part of the action, but to catch up on all the happenings for day one, here’s all you need to know:
The inaugural FRONT FORUM presented by 40 leaders in architecture, design, master planning and development proved that Australia continues to lead the world’s commercial landscape. Over 1,300 visitors learned directly from those influencers driving change in our combined endeavours. Our CPD demonstrations shared the latest insights in the commercial sector presented by FRONT’s disruptive and pioneering brands.
Colliers, Mirvac, HASSELL, Woods Bagot … you name it, and they were here in droves! From the country’s top developers to the biggest architecture firms and the most exclusive boutique design studios, FRONT’s business lounges, FRONTech – our proprietary meeting app – and our round-the-clock catering were buzzing. Making connections that truly convert is at the heart of FRONT, and for day 1 we’re already off to a great start.
But FRONT would be nothing were it not for the dedicated support of our exhibiting brands. More than 100 leading commercial design and architecture brands from around the world showcased their latest and greatest today. From flooring to furniture, lighting to fixtures, and beyond (!), FRONT’s exhibition halls were brought to life with the excitement of specifiers engaging with these products for the very first time.
