DesignBUILD Commercial concludes in Perth
Designers, builders, architects and industry trades and professionals in Perth who attended the DesignBUILD Commercial expo at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre are now up to date on the latest industry trends, news and regulations.
The expo, which opens in Perth every second year, attracted over 100 exhibitors and has been opened to industry trades and professionals since Wednesday morning.
SIPS Industries Insulated Panels were named for the Best New Product, while runners up included Garantia, Composite Materials Australia and Vacuum Toilets Australia.
Exhibition Director Danielle Fischer said the Perth show had been successful, particularly the seminar series and the late night opening on Thursday night.
“All of the seminars were presented by leading industry speakers and were also accredited with CPD points.
“In many of the seminars we had to put in extra chairs, which is a great sign for the consumers of Perth as it means their local design, building and construction industry professionals are committed to delivering market leading products and services.
“DesignBUILD was also open until 8pm on Thursday to give busy trades and professionals a chance to come along and it was great to see so many visitors make the most of the extended hours.
“The feedback so far from exhibitors is that the Perth tradies and professionals have been really interested in understanding how the new products work, while there has been plenty of discussion on sustainable building practices with visitors keen to understand exactly how a product is classified as ‘green’.
“It’s fantastic to see such a strong local commitment to introducing and increasing awareness of better building practices and we look forward to returning the expo here in the future,” she said.
The DesignBUILD Expo will open next at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from Wednesday 11 May – Friday 13 May 2011 and will return to Perth again in 2012.
