Where is the event?

Date: September 2024
Time: 9am-5pm
Location:Saturday Indesign will be hosted in our exhibitor showroom locations across several design precincts in Sydney.

Saturday Indesign does not have one main location. It works by uniting showroom spaces across Sydney, connected by design trails and our own free shuttle buses. You can start your day anywhere at any exhibiting location. Further information about exhibitor locations will be shared closer to the event.

How does the event work?

Saturday Indesign involves a coming together of international, regional and local commercial design houses and leading creative figures from the architecture and design industry. Key design-led showrooms around Sydney 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.

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.
