‘ It’s a trade event like no other in Australia; it features only newly released quality products, newly developed materials, technologies and services. It is the hub for many of the Festival’s business and social activities because it focuses on the people and the products. ‘Designers, business, industry, government, trade and media groups have all contributed to the vision that is Under Capricorn,’ Says national Design Centre Director, Kathy Demos, “ It is a vision that will further develop the credentials of the design sector and promote this region’s ever-expanding roll as the hub of design excellence”
Specially created commissions by emerging designers such as Pseudo Republik, Simon MacEwan and Poppies for Grace will decorate the space, and every element of the Under Capricorn environment will reflect a consideration for design and the comfort of its visitors.’- Kathy Demos.
