Update: Given the news that Melbourne will be entering a five-day lockdown at midnight on Friday 12 February, we just wanted to reassure everyone that IDEA 2020 will go ahead as planned on Friday 19 February.
We’re confident that, just like in Perth and Adelaide, this lockdown will be a short, sharp circuit breaker and we’re looking forward to celebrating with you next Friday!
if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosted by design doyenne and The Dezign Garage founder Justine Mantel, the gala party will be at Melbourne’s The Timber Yard from 6:30pm with plenty of amazing food, fantastic live music and free flowing drinks from our partners Archie Rose gin, Moo Brew beers and Seville Estate wines.
We’ll also be announcing the winners live on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @AustralianDesignReview #IDEA2020.

Past winners and this year’s judges will be on hand to help present the 14 category winners, along with Designer of the Year, Emerging Designer of the Year, Overall Winner and the Gold Medal for lifetime achievement.
With plenty of space indoor and out, the 6,000 sqm The Timber Yard is the perfect venue for this year’s COVID-safe gala party, meaning you can unwind, catch up with friends and enjoy some great drinks, even better food and a dance or two safely and securely.
