Interior Design/Fit-out Awards

The Interior Design & Fit-out Awards at Architecture & Building Expo (held in association with the RIAI Annual Conference) are a much-coveted accolade as they recognise the specialist disciplines covering both function and aesthetics. This is reflected year on year in the growing number of entries, with the simplified entry process designed to make participation easier and the adjudication process more comprehensive.
