buildnz reflects vibrant building and design sector


Evidence is strong that New Zealand’s building and design sectors are generally doing well, with interest in their premier event delighting industry association and event organisers.
buildnz designex is set to be one of the best yet, showing that the industry is strong and there is confidence in the future.

Endorsed by the Registered Master Builders Federation, Certified Builders Association, BRANZ, the NZ Institute of Architects, Designers Institute, Furniture Association and Lifemark, the event benefits everyone from suppliers through to contractors to home and building owners.

Rob Lavender, from buildnz designex organiser XPO Exhibitions, says suppliers have flocked to the event to such a degree that available floor space is extremely limited.
“Obviously there is a lot of confidence that the years ahead will be good for those involved with, or connected to, building and design,” Mr Lavender says.
“The level of interest from offshore is also high, and that also bodes well.”

Learning opportunities

buildnz designex is the country’s biggest industry trade show and a learning opportunity, with onsite seminars to help those attending stay right up to date, including many that contribute to professional development requirements/points for some professions and trades.
“This is a trade-only event and is a must-attend on the calendar of everyone serious about their business. It’s also the only place in New Zealand where those in the industry can see the very latest technology and developments over just a few days.”

There’ll be plenty of fun and valuable networking time too, and one lucky attendee will win a brand-new Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost worth $52,990.
“More than 5000 trade visitors know the value of attending, and everyone serious about success should join them,” Mr Lavender says.
buildnz designex 2013 will be held on Sunday, June 23 to Tuesday, June 25 at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane.
The event is expected to attract more than 5000 trade visitors.
