Biggest building and design show to run in June


Keen interest is already being shown in this year’s major building industry event, BuildNZ designEXNZ 07, which runs from June 24 to 26 at the ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.

Regarded by many industry leaders as the most important event on the calendar, the biennial show is also the largest to bring key trade buyers and designers face-to-face with the latest technology.

Once again the show is endorsed by influential industry groups including BRANZ, New Zealand Institute of Builders, New Zealand Institute of Architects, Registered Master Builders Federation, Designers’ Institute of New Zealand, Certified Builders and the Illuminating Engineers Society.

Running for the fourth time, BuildNZ will occupy three exhibition halls at the refurbished venue. Among 24 industry sectors to visit the show will be builders, building owners and managers, architects, property develops, interior designers, building supply merchants, engineers, plumbers and many other trades.

The New Zealand Institute of Architects will again be involved in bringing to the show keynote speakers. The keynote presentation from Gabriel Poole at the last show in 2005 was very well received. Visitors and exhibitors can look forward to hearing from another well-respected leading architectural speaker at the coming show.
