2020 Design Symposium

Two days of design inspiration that ends with a Gala Awards evening to announce Australia’s Finest Designers.

14 – 15 August 2020
Shangri-La Hotel
The Rocks, Sydney

We’re thrilled to be heading to Sydney for this year’s KBDi Design Symposium and Awards Gala. We’ll be rocking around the Rocks on 14 and 15 August 2020, and have lined up an incredible accommodation rate for the early birds keen to save some $$.


This year’s conference and Gala will be held at the Shangri-La Hotel (176 Cumberland Street, The Rocks, Sydney).

This fabulous 5-star hotel is located in the historic neighbourhood of The Rocks, and is just a hop, skip and jump away from the City’s heart and highlights. You’ll discover laneways from a bygone era, wander through the famous open-air Rocks Markets, and enjoy a drink in some of Sydney’s oldest pubs.

KBDi has secured an exclusive rate for KBDi Symposium and Gala Delegates:

Deluxe Darling Harbour King

  • $270 per night, room only
  • $300 per night with breakfast for 1
  • $330 per night with breakfast for 2
  • (Note: breakfast is $42 pp for walk-in guests)

All rooms have Harbour views, and rates include complimentary local call access and in-room wired internet and Wi-Fi. You’ll have free access to the Health Club, and can use the hotel’s fully fitted out 24-hour gym, heated indoor swimming pool and sauna to work off your Gala gluttony.

Room rates are applicable three (3) days pre and post-stay, subject to room availability, so why not make a (tax-deductible) holiday out of your Symposium and Gala experience?

You’ll need a special KBDi booking reference to secure the above rates; email Lorena at majorevents@kbdi.org.au and she’ll send you the relevant details.
