COVID-19 Update

The whole team at Indesign is committed to ensuring a safe event for all exhibitors and attendees. As such, we are monitoring the latest updates and advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) as released by the Department of Health and Human Services at a state and national level. 

We want to make sure that Saturday Indesign is both high-quality and safe.

Saturday Indesign will now take place on 29 August 2020. Registration opens in June.

Who can attend?

Saturday Indesign is a unique design experience primarily serving:

Architects, developers, design hunters, industrial designers, interior designers, manufacturers, product suppliers, specifiers.

It brings together members of the architecture, building, construction and design industries in a creative format that’s immersive and interactive, social and fun. You can bring friends or family, you can meet some of the most ambitious, creative design minds, you can (re)connect with the local design community, and you can get to know world-leading brand cultures. It’s a social design experience.

All design lovers are welcome.

Where is the event?

Saturday Indesign does not have one main location. It works by uniting showrooms and pop-up spaces across Melbourne, connected by design trails and our own free shuttle buses, running regularly all day. You can start your day anywhere at any exhibiting location. More exhibitors, timed events and activities will be available soon!

How does the event work?

Saturday Indesign involves a coming together of international and regional commercial design houses and leading creative figures from the architecture and design industry. Key design-led showrooms around Melbourne will be transformed by conceptual installations, while hosting topical industry seminars, international guests, workshops, demonstrations and entertainment. Exhibitor locations are connected by design trails that can be walked, alongside our own free shuttle buses running regularly all day. The whole program is like a choose-your-own design adventure for industry insiders and design lovers. It’s free to attend but you must register.
