About ArchitEx

ArchitEx brings together architects, specifiers, building designers, developers, planning officers and suppliers together in a regional setting to explore local opportunities, debate topical issues, learn from national and international case studies, discuss the latest design trends, network with new contacts and to source the latest technology, products and materials.

Launched in 2015, this annual event incorporates a free-to-attend high-level conference and exhibition with built-in networking opportunities. Due to popular demand, the event this year will be more selective with delegates applying for their pass, due to limited places available.

Suppliers to the industry will only be able to attend if they are exhibiting or sponsoring the event, so that we can ensure maximum quality of attendees.
