we have arranged for complimentary buses to transport you around town.

number of express routes. While every effort is made for a bus to
arrive at each location at approximately 15-minute intervals, remember

also available on this website closer to the event date in pdf form for
you to download.
Q. Where do the buses start?
A. Buses start at 9am at different locations around the city on the Saturday (buses will not be operating on +Friday),
and travel in designated loops throughout the whole day. The buses do
not start at one particular showroom, it is a hop-on, hop-off service.

A. All individually. Every person wishing to attend needs to pre-register with correct details.

You can move between showrooms at your own pace using your own
transportation. The bus service is available for your convenience.

Yes, there is a Saturday in Design After-Party. The party is a trade
event and entry is strictly by invite only. Invites will be designated

Yes, there is a Saturday in Design Handbook for 2008. The handbook will
