We highly recommend that your ArchiPro profile is up to date. Our team is more than happy to help with any changes. Please get in contact with your client manager if you need assistance. 

5) Exhibitor training

We will be holding virtual exhibitor training sessions around a month prior to the event.

We understand that the evening is an investment for our clients so we want to ensure you really make the most out of this event. In this session our team will cover the following topics:

  1. Engaging at the event, including: having the right team on your exhibition stand, key homeowner qualification questions and tips around overall stand presentation including how to best present your ArchiPro profile and projects.

  2. Lead capture including: training on how to use the event app and ideas for engaging with homeowners on the night.

  3. Lead follow up: recommendations on next steps following the event, the best follow up timeframes and recommended email templates.

6) Ticketing & accreditation 

During the evening you and your team will be required to wear a lanyard with your name badge attached. These lanyards identify you as a product supplier exhibitor. 

There is a limit on the number of staff that can attend based on the package you invested in: 

  • Silver – 4 staff tickets
  • Gold – 4 staff tickets
  • Platinum – 6 staff tickets
  • Black – 8 staff tickets
  • Bespoke – 10 staff tickets

You can fill in your staff names and details within your exhibitor portal, which will generate the tickets.

Your tickets are meant for staff who can speak to homeowners and professionals about your products. 

Upon arrival at the event, you and your staff can simply scan your tickets at the registration desk to receive a lanyard.

The Timber Yard - Floor Plan

The Timber Yard Floor Plan
Please note: ArchiPro's Home Design Evening is held in The Warehouse and The Woodstore.

Every product exhibitor will receive:

  • 1 x black pod (1060W x 560D x 970H) with your logo in gold applied to the front.
  • 1 x 10amp plug with a 4-way multi box for power.
  • A dedicated taped-off space (once you are packed in we will remove the tape).

The size of your space is dependent on the package you have selected. 

  • Silver – 1.5m x 1.5m
  • Gold – 2m x 2m
  • Platinum –  3m x 2m
  • Black –  4m x 2m
  • Bespoke – 6m x 6m 

The black pod with gold logo is to be placed within your taped-out space. 

If you do not require the black exhibitor pod, please let us know when you fill out your exhibitor portal.

We carefully consider and allocate exhibitors' spaces based on their product, facilities required and surrounding exhibitors. 

The exhibition floor must look impeccable to enhance and elevate the attendee experience (and create a high-end experience). Our intention for the evening is for all stands to look slick, well well-designed, and for all exhibitors to display their products so that attendees can feel, touch, and experience them.

Those who have booked early and are on a platinum package will receive priority placement of their stand.

Please let us know if you prefer a wall space. For example, if your stand has a back wall it's better to be along the wall than in the middle of the space.  

Nothing can be leaned against or hung on the venue wall; everything needs to be self-standing.

To ensure a premium look at the event no pull up banners are allowed. 

The more information you provide to us via your exhibitor portal regarding your stand, the better we can position you on the night.

  • If you require gas cylinders or have any naked flame/combustible items for this you will need to arrange a hot works permit. Please reach out to
  • If you require open flames at your exhibition stand. Please note, open flames are at the discretion of the venue. Generally open flames are okay on the following conditions:
    1. At home fireplaces that are enclosed in glass and operated by gas are okay to exhibit.
    2. Product must have a gas shut off procedure and a fire extinguisher close by (provided by the exhibitor for the duration of the event).
  • If your stand exceeds 2.8m in height.
  • If you are planning to bring any heavy items (20 > kg) that need a forklift.

A forklift will be available and only operated by venue management or other suitably qualified personnel. A $50 per-lift charge will be invoiced to you for each lift undertaken.
