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. See our exhibitor list or the timed events schedule and event map closer to the date to plan your day.

In 2019 Saturday Indesign will be offering a studio bus service:

  • Plan a custom three hour tour for your office
  • Morning sessions 9am – 12noon OR 1pm – 4pm
  • Pick up from your studio for either session
  • Don’t wait for the bus – it waits for you
  • Tour Melbourne together with a bespoke morning or afternoon program

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.
