Trade Fair Month: Sydney February 2014

Well, it’s nearly that time again! Next month we’ll be seeing a number of gift fairs and exhibitions in Sydney. Here’s a run down of what’s ahead.

> First, Decoration + Design is Australia’s premier interiors trade event, running between the 5th and 7th of February.

Whether you’re interested in visiting or exhibiting, over the 3 days you’ll see the latest and greatest in interior products & furnishings, learn about the most recent and innovative industry developments and mingle with leading companies and design nuts. If you can’t make this one, it’ll be in Melbourne in July.

> Another event not to miss is the Reed Gift Fair in Sydney (at its new home on Glebe Island), which is just as anticipated as usual.

The fair will be open between the 15th and 19th in Sydney where there will be lots of new exhibitors to see, conversations to be had and ideas to soak up. If you can’t make it to Sydney, the fair will also be in Melbourne between the 1st and the 4th.

> Then there’s the  Home & Giving Fair, organised by the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA), where the homewares industry can see all the latest products on the market.


With exhibitors covering everything from Kitchen to Outdoor to Gift and more, it’s one worth registering for if you’re a registered business in the industry. This one is at Sydney showground, Sydney Olympic Park between the 15th and 18th of Feb.

> One more, of course, is Life in Style – the boutique trade event of the month.


Here you’ll see emerging trends, brands and products with a focus on creativity and originality – perfect for design-savvy buyers. Life in Style is held at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney between the 13th and 16th of Feb.
