Featuring a line-up of engaging presenters, including Brickworks managing director Lindsay Partridge AM, Yellowtrace founder and editor Dana Tomic Hughes and Kim Chadwick, director Australian Trend Forecast, the dynamic digital event is set to announce new and game-changing innovations.

The most anticipated unveiling is a collaboration between Brickworks and Australian industrial designer Adam Goodrum.

B20 comes off the back of the first Brickworks studio to open in North America.

Located on the first floor of the Witherspoon building in Philadelphia, the impressive studio offers the local architecture and design community a premium design-led experience – a place where they can collaborate on projects, select high-end products and attend leading industry events.

Inspired by Philadelphia’s old-world charm, the retail space also features products that are synonymous with the city, including authentic handmade brick and Cushwa premium wood-moulded brick.
