Our opening night party to celebrate Cincinnati’s creative communities. Artisanal food entrepreneurs will be sampling and selling their products and area restaurants will be sampling locally sourced dishes from the displays of some of the most creative companies in the design industry. Included with DesignBuildCincy admission!
Shop for one of a kind decorative accents, furnishings and gourmet food from over twenty luxury retailers and modern makers at this year’s DesignBuildCincy. Curated by Duru Armagan, founder and former owner of Sloane Boutique in Over the Rhine, and Doug Hart, founder of the original Cincinnati Holiday Market and owner of DesignBuildCincy.
DesignBuildCincy has always served as an outstanding venue to interact and network with our consumer and professional customers. From attendees to exhibitors, our targeted clients have been drawn to the unique craftspeople, one-of-a-kind products, and premium service providers who attend this show.
DesignBuildCincy has been instrumental in building a collaborative spirit among Cincinnati’s makers, designers and tradespeople. Doug has a true heart for the city, and I love the support, enthusiasm and interest he brings to our community. He has provided a much needed outlet to showcase some of the region’s best design resources.
DesignBuild allows us to explore new ways of connecting with our audience, using technology and traditional display methods to bridge the gap between 'showing what we do' and allowing people to experience it. This event gives us the chance to migrate from the expected 'trade show booth' setup and create an immersive experience for visitors and fellow vendors alike.
I have participated the last two years and have found the show is a great place to get in front of a large amount of people interested in good design.
From the moment you step into Music Hall it's clear that Design Build Cincy is different. The beauty of the historic structure, the quality nature of the other exhibitors, and the smaller number, yet more focused show attendees make this a unique experience among home shows. Doug has done a wonderful job of curating a show that speaks to those who value high quality design and craftsmanship, just like we do. It's the one show I never mind attending.
