buildnz | designex & Safety Show report

POST SHOW REPORT 21-23 June 2015, ASB Showgrounds, Auckland

Dear Exhibitor, On behalf of the buildnz | designex and The National Safety Show team, we would like to extend our thanks to all those who attended and supported this year’s show. Held at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland from the 21- 23 June 2015 the country’s largest event for the building, design, construction and safety industry has been called an amazing success by both visitors and exhibitors. Attracting more than 300 exhibiting companies across a range of industries and attendance of 6,222 visitors, it’s been one of the most successful events ever across it’s 30 year history. We are pleased to have been inundated with feedback that the show delivered a lot more new products and innovations than prior shows - a mix of kiwi made and/or internationally sourced.

From 2 story houses and prefabricated structures, to the latest in drug detection services and updates on the new Health & Safety reform bill there was something for everyone. Not to mention the very full 3 day seminar series including keynote speaker Ian Moore of Ian Moore Architects whose session titled ‘Residensity’ was attended by over 230 industry professionals. Feedback has been extremely positive with exhibitors now actively following up a high number of quality targeted audience leads. Overall a great success!
