Wow...what a month October has been

We kicked off the month by hosting an evening on Environmental Sustainability in the Corporate World with the Brisbane Junior Chamber of Commerce. Guests shared their opinions on how they could better our planet through the business world, as well as learning about carbon footprints. As signatories of the UN Global Compact and with pending Environmental Certification, here at Markian, we strive to uphold sustainable and ethical practices in every part of our business, so it's always encouraging and exciting to hear about how other professionals are eager to explore this necessary topic within their respective industries. Photography event available here.


We then held Making Markian, a two-day CPD intensive event the brought the companies together that helped make Markian a reality. Attendees were treated to Dulux and Laminex trend forecasts and presentations, whilst the Barrett Group facilitated exclusive factory tours, showcasing the new and innovative technologies they utilise alongside their traditional time honoured craftsmanship. Photography event available here.



We finished out the month with a bang at our Sensory event! An exercise in being present in the most delicious of ways, Krsna from BASIK Chocolates created his delectable morsels to perfect pair with Wine Valet's mouth-watering wine selections. A total feast for the senses!



Looking forward to November, we've got another exciting month ahead!

Liminal Spaces, Tanya Wale's first solo art exhibition at Markian is opening Thursday the 11th of November from 6-9pm at the Markian showroom. Secure your spot for this free event here.

Lastly, keep your eye out for our Black Friday sale coming up later this month!


We'd like to extend a big thank you to all of our event collaborators and supporters, as well as all of our event guests. We've loved hosting everyone and can't wait to invite more people to our Markian events!
