The ArchiPro Commercial Expo, New Zealand’s premier commercially-focused event, is bringing together the best of commercial design and build for two days of education, discovery and networking at Auckland’s Shed 10, on November 1 and 2, 2022.

Off the back of ArchiPro’s successful home owner-focused events, ArchiPro is launching a new, free-to-attend event dedicated to the commercial design and build industry.

More than 1000 industry professionals are expected to attend, including architects, interior designers, builders, construction managers, developers, engineers, and quantity surveyors.

They’ll be joined by more than 60 exhibiting product suppliers, and 18 industry experts who will be speaking at the event.

The Expo will open with an exclusive cocktail evening on November 1, featuring an opening night keynote presentation from commercial and public policy advisor Steven Joyce.

November 2 will involve a full-day conference and exhibition where attendees will be able to browse the latest products and technology for use in the commercial build sector.

Headlining the speaking agenda are international keynotes Tom Kundig, US-based principal, owner and founder of architecture firm Olson Kundig, and Mariana Cabugueira, London-based director of architecture at metaverse company Wilder World.

Joining them are a number of other industry experts who will lead panel and education sessions discussing topics including diversity in commercial design, innovative solutions for a greener future, and technology and automation to future-proof the industry.

Attendees are eligible to claim CPD and LBP points to help fulfil their professional development requirements, thanks to Teulo, ArchiPro’s education partner.

Presented by Polyflor, the Expo is the first and largest event of its kind.

“We’re incredibly excited to be putting on an event dedicated to the commercial design and build sector,” ArchiPro chief executive and co-founder Milot Zeqiri says.

“As a refugee, I’m particularly passionate about ensuring commercial spaces are not just practical, but reflect the needs of everyone in our society. The commercial sector has a strong influence on New Zealand’s future, so providing access to the best design principles, technology and resources for sustainable commercial building projects and spaces is so important.

“It’s why we’ve created this event to bring together the industry’s professionals, product suppliers and experts to learn and grow from each other.”
