Melbourne Design Market | Lights Out

Melbourne Design Market | Lights Out

It is with a sense of pride and some sadness that we announce today the Melbourne Design Market has now closed (Aug 2017).

Having started Australia's very first design market over a decade ago, we feel it's time to respond to the evolving needs of the design community with new projects.

The Melbourne Design Market correctly predicted the need for a new retail model and instantly became a major forum for emerging and established businesses to demonstrate their credentials to the marketplace New products were launched in the most personal way, with the designers present to tell the story to appreciative audiences.

New, long-term relationships were formed, sales and orders soared and before long an online presence together with participation at the Melbourne Design Market became a winning formula for a viable business. No wonder so many other markets sprang up in our wake, and rightly so.

We would like to thank you all - designers, guests, suppliers and contractors. We would especially like to acknowledge The Bean Alliance who have spoiled us with their Bean Ground +Drunk organic coffee and support from day one. Thank you to our host, Federation Square and the many people who have helped us stage the market events every year.

It's been grand.
