Important information regarding your Urbis Designday 2013 passes - please read.

If your Urbis Designday passes were purchased before 5pm on 18 March, they have been sent to you via post. If you have not received them by 9am on Friday 22 March or if you are unable to access your postal address/box before or on that date, please contact Zara Tempest - zara.tempest@agm.co.nz. We will hold your details and the required number of passes for you at the Urbis HQ, Geyser Building, 105/110 Parnell Road, Parnell on Saturday 23 March and you can collect them from 10am. Your name will be on the door list; you will not miss out.

Urbis Designday passes purchased after 5pm on 18 March will not be delivered via post. Please collect your passes from the Urbis HQ, Geyser Building, 105/110 Parnell Road, Parnell, from 10am on Saturday 23 March. Your name will be on the door list.

The Urbis Designday booklet and coloured event wristband are your entry passes - there are no tickets. The wristbands allow you access to the free transport, free hospitality and the design installations from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, so it is important that you wear them on the day. The booklets are a helpful guide to the showroom circuit.

Read on to find out more about how the day works and how you can be part of it.

Q. How does the day work?
Urbis Designday takes place on one day across 10 different design locations (or stops), dotted around central Auckland and the city fringe. At each stop, there is a different design installation - something completely unique that you wouldn’t encounter on any other day - created by a design collaboration (i.e. a furniture showroom partnered with a fashion designer).

Free transport is provided to all Urbis Designday guests from 10am to 5pm on the day. The transport runs in a continuous circuit so you can start anywhere (on the map provided) and at any time, and continue to the next stop from there.

Q. How do I buy passes and when will I receive them?
Passes are available online at eventfinder.co.nz. It’s just $30 for a single pass, $50 for a double pass, or $99 for a double pass + one year subscription to Urbis magazine. You will be sent an Urbis Designday booklet and white wristband to your postal address between 10 and 23 March, 2013 and this will count as your ticket.

The wristband will allow you access to the installations, free transport and hospitality so it is important that you wear it on the day. The booklet will be your guide to the participating showrooms and their collaborators. Please note, the receipt you receive from eventfinder.co.nz is NOT your ticket.

Q. What time does Urbis Designday start, and where?
The day runs from 10am to 5pm (we recommend starting early) and you can start at any one of the Designday locations. Choose the spot that’s most convenient for you. The Designday venues will be announced here on Wednesday 6 March, 2013.

Q. Where do I collect my Urbis Designday bag from?
These are available at all of the showrooms on the day. If the showroom you start at has run out of bags, the next showroom on the tour should have one.

Q. How do I move around the different locations?
provides branded taxi vans which run every 5 minutes between the Urbis Designday showrooms, following the route on the Designday map in the middle of the booklet.

Q. What if I want to bring someone along and they haven’t got a pass?
Passes are on sale from 9.30am on the day at the Urbis HQ. Passes on the day are $35 for a single pass or $55 for a double.

Q. Am I expected to buy stuff on the day?
Many of the showrooms on the day will have special offers and discounts, however, there is no expectation for you to purchase anything on the day.
