HiiGuru to Host its Inaugural 'Designathon' at Grand Designs

Everyone has heard of a Hackathon, but what about a Designathon?

A Designathon combines HiiGuru's tech savvy DNA with its expertise in fast, high-quality design results.

Grand Designs Live visitors are invited to submit their dream room transformation briefs in advance, after which, a few lucky submissions will be chosen. During each weekend of the show, HiiGuru's top designers will create 3D renderings of the chosen rooms, live. Visitors will be able to cheer on their favourite designers and the designers' talents will be projected onto big screens, for everyone to enjoy. Plus, the owners of the lucky submissions will get to keep the completed 3D renderings, at no additional cost.

Visitors can expect tons of fun, excitement and drama at the inaugural HiiGuru Designathon!

The Designathon will take place at stand E125:

• Saturday, 29th April at 12:30pm

• Sunday, 7th May at 11:30am

“Making design and build expertise accessible to all has been my mission since the founding of HiiGuru,” says Dara Chen, Founder & CEO at HiiGuru.  “As the official expert partner of Grand Designs Live in 2023, I am thrilled that our experts will be able to support visitors’ home build and renovation journeys through the Ask an Expert feature and our inaugural Designathon.”
