Designing outside the square from inside the square

Tuesday | 5 October 2021 | 4 pm ADST

Designing showrooms for manufacturers and suppliers and creating fun and functional exhibition stands can present many challenges. Site restraints, material selections and the careful consideration of traffic flow requires both practical and creative thinking. In this session, KBDi’s Royston Wilson will be chatting with long-time member, Robert Bayly, about designing outside of the square from inside the square.

We’ll also be introducing an exciting new opportunity for designers to create (or collaborate on) a Denfair and Interiors Australia exhibition space. Tune in to learn more.
