The Big Design Trade, now in its second year, is an industry-only event where buyers can source new products from Australian and New Zealand designers, as well as international brands represented by local wholesalers. The show will bring together a curated selection of 115 independent brands to provide a one-stop destination for buyers who are committed to stocking high quality, unique and ethically made products. 


This is an industry-only event. All attendees must either pre-register or register at the event providing proof of their business. All attendees and exhibitors will be issued lanyards with their details so everyone can easily identify whom they are speaking with.


We believe good food is essential for any event so once again we will bring the best coffee, food and drinks from some of Melbourne's favourite taste-makers. Design is our first passion but food is definitely a close second.


Stands will be constructed from timber walling (painted white) so that exhibitors can create a bespoke space that reflects their brand. Each stand will have a 2.4m high back wall, on to which shelving and signage can be attached or painted, as well as 1m deep return walls either side.

Stands will be fitted with 300w arm lights attached to back walls to showcase products, the quantity of arm lights supplied depends on the size of stand booked. Additional floodlights will be installed overhead to create a warm ambience within the space.


A variety of stall sizes will be available, starting with a 2x2m stand at $2,000 excluding GST. A 25% non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your stand if successful, with a balance payment (75%) to be made in April 2019.


Parking is available at Secure Parking in Blackwood Street, North Melbourne.
