The Full Frontal Tile & Stone Expo offers a unique opportunity to appreciate tile and stone products.
May 6th, 2009
Returning tile and stone products to the ‘lime’light, this exciting expo will inspire designers and architects to learn the key aspects of working with hard surface materials.
Spanning over three days, the Full Frontal Tile & Stone Expo (FFTSE) will provide a wide range of specialty seminars, industry forums, formal training sessions and innovative exhibits relating to the sustainability and standards of this medium.
This exciting event has attracted 20 speakers from across Australia and overseas to lead seminars and respond to designers’ and architects’ call to better understand maintenance, care and installation of hard surface materials.
FFTSE is sure to give visitors that desired ‘edge’ in the industry as it presents an opportunity to acquire specialized information on tile and stone products and unearth the latest designs.
The expo will update attendees on the newly released National Bushfire Standard for Residential Dwelling and demonstrate ceramic tiles ability to withstand fire and restrict it from spreading.
As if designers need further enticement, the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) will accredit all attending members with Continuing Professional Development points and the FFTSE organisers are giving AIA members a 10% discount on all formal training sessions.
Catch the Expo on the 20-22 August at the Sydney Convention Centre.

Sometimes the most highly evolved designs are incomplete. When conceptualising the new Suncorp headquarters in Sydney, the interiors team at Geyer worked to the idea of ‘designing to 80%’. The result is a radical take on the oft-used idea of workplace flexibility. While the building caters to the needs of its residents in the present, it comprehensively avoids dictating what these needs will be in the future.
