KBDi Design Symposium
& Gala Awards 2016

16 + 17 September | Melbourne

KBDi Design Symposiums are held in conjunction with our annual KBDi Designer Awards Gala events.  In 2016 we enjoyed our most successful event to date, with members experiencing two jam-packed days of touring in Melbourne (see the highlights below).

KBDi’s inaugural Design Symposium was a huge success with Members, with plenty of laughter, learning and design inspiration throughout the two day event.

The Design Symposium kicked off with a fantastic presentation by Justin van Nierop at Urban Edge Ceramics. An entertaining presentation by well-known architect, Melissa Bright (MAKE Architecture) was hosted in Smeg’s Collingwood Showroom, where in true Smeg-style, guests were well and truly wined and dined. E & S Trading’s Rob Sinclair shared his brilliant business insights at the third stop of the day, and Albedor opened their factory doors to the group for a hugely informative ‘Shop Talk’. Graham Jones inspired and entertained us in the beautiful surrounds of the Yarra Valley’s Rochford Winery, we we enjoyed a delectable lunch thanks to sponsors, Blum.
