After ten years of success as Decoration + Design, the leading design event is having a transformation, unveiling its new look and name — Decor + Design — at this year’s Furnitex.
The event, which attracts thousands of local and international visitors each year, will be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 10-13 July.
“Our industry is all about the latest trends and new products, and we are all constantly reinventing ourselves to ensure that we are current and relevant to our audiences,” explains Joel Cooper, Group Exhibition Director of organiser Informa Exhibitions. “Decor + Design has been renamed to acknowledge the show’s wide appeal to a market that includes interior design, architecture, trend experts and stylists, with diverse exhibitors across the furniture, furnishings and design world.”
One of the biggest highlights of the events will be VIVID – Vibrant Visions in Design — a competition offering aspiring designers a unique launching pad into the furniture industry. Emerging designers will present work in Commercial, Concept, Student and Green categories, with awards being announced on opening day.
