AGHA Sydney Gift Fair at Sydney Olympic Park proved to be an incredibly successful event last week, with thousands of international and Australian retail buyers, interior stylists and design professionals flocking to this sold-out trade exhibition to source their new season best-sellers.
Held 23-26 February 2019, AGHA Sydney Gift Fair attendees had the opportunity to explore thousands of innovative new retail products and make new business connections with industry experts over four huge days.
This year, AGHA Sydney Gift Fair welcomed the new addition of 13 key retail product categories including smart living, home and interiors, entertaining and dining, outdoor living and more.
Every corner of the venue was packed out with a massive selection of exciting exhibitor displays, providing retailers with a huge one-stop-shop of retail products.
Start-up ventures in The Launch Pad shone through as an exciting highlight of the Gift Fair, together with the latest high-end collections from Australia’s finest suppliers in Design Life.
Professional development also came into focus this year. Retailers learnt how to grow their retail business and gained valuable marketing advice (with a complementary glass of bubbly in hand) during an exclusive Meet & Greet with AGHA Sydney Gift Fair media partner and Interiors Addict founder, Jen Bishop.
Experienced visual merchandiser Natalie Coulter was on hand in The Styling Well, where her free interactive workshops offered practical support and tips for effective product styling each day.
If that wasn’t enough to inspire, Threadz Australia provided a professional fashion stylist to deliver helpful fashion advice and merchandising strategies for businesses to use in-store.
Impressive feature area, The Trending Home, also made its inaugural debut in The Dome. Featuring a curated selection of handpicked pieces from leading exhibitors at AGHA Sydney Gift Fair, The Trending Home was a beautiful showcase of modern interior and outdoor décor.
Thousands of premium ranges and brands are due to return to our next event, AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair, on 3-7 August 2019. Held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), retailers can get prepared and ready to go for this important sourcing opportunity by registering here.
