Guests at the KBDi Designer Awards Gala event of 2018 were warmly greeted in traditional style, with a Welcome Drinks gathering proudly sponsored once again by KBDi Diamond Sponsor, Smeg.

With great anticipation of the celebrations ahead, Australia’s Finest designers gathered outside the ballroom of the Sheraton Grand Mirage on the Gold Coast. In what has become a decade-long tradition, the designers enjoyed a champers or two before heading into the ballroom, and we relished observing the growing sense of warmth and community enjoyed by our national membership.

Many thanks to all of the Members, Sponsors, friends and family who joined us in a fabulous night of celebrations, and much appreciation to Smeg for their ongoing and invaluable support of Australia’s finest designers.
