Sydney Build 2023 took place on 6-7 March 2023 at ICC Sydney. We welcomed 390 exhibitors, 385 speakers and 13,639 attendees across the two days. The event was incredibly busy with 9 stages running concurrently, networking hub sessions, workshops, demos and live entertainment. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who helped us create such a memorable exhibition.

''Such a remarkable first day at Sydney Build. It was exhausting but super rewarding, with so many first timers, customers and friends stopping by the Revizto booth.
And cherry on top for me was having the unique chance of spending time with the guys afterwards. So many countries, backgrounds, and years of experience in this picture; very grateful for meeting them face to face down under."

''If you thought attending a trade show might be a snooze fest, you clearly haven’t been to Sydney Build Expo! This was the best event to date. Meeting Hughesy and getting a massage at the wellness centre were just the beginning of the excitement! We learned about the latest building & design products and trends, spent time with fabulous people like Ozge Fettahlioglu and Vesna Zuban and the team at Design Matters and of course the ultimate attraction for any event, free food 😄 Thank you Sydney Build Expo for inviting me to be an ambassador to this event!"
