DesignEX Cancelled for 2015 – Industry Changes
DesignEX Cancelled for 2015
In a surprising decision for 2015 DesignEX the Australian design communities industry trade show has taken the decision to cancel the 2015 show.
Interior designers and architects has travelled to the show that alternates between Sydney and Melbourne to source new products and trends.
I do have to say that at the 2014 show when I attended I was unable to take any photos. I felt this was a bad decision at the time as I was unable to promote to my community on social media any of the products or companies I found. I know the companies themselves would love the promotion.
DesignEX has stated they are looking to deliver an even better show that fits into the new digital and online informed market.
A statement from the organisers –
Diversified Communications has made the difficult business decision not to run designEX 2015. It has unfortunately become clear that, despite significant effort and investment, the event model is not sustainable in its current format and requires a complete reinvention in order to both meet the needs of the market and operate successfully. The thought process has begun on how to deliver the “designEX” for the future.
We look forward to the new and improved DesignEX in the future.
