Thousands of retailers are writing their shopping lists in preparation for one of NSW’s biggest gift and homewares events, Reed Gift Fairs Sydney September (September 17-20 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre). More than 450 wholesalers from around Australia will showcase their newest products in the last opportunity for retailers to buy their stock for the all-important Christmas season and summer.
“At Sydney September, the final fair of the year on the Reed Gift Fairs calendar, we expect to see developing gift trends for not only Christmas, but items for summer as well,” says Exhibition Director Omer Soker. The event is expected to attract up to 10,000 visitors and generate tens of millions of dollars in sales.
It’s no secret though, that the rise of online shopping is greatly affecting Australian retailers. To encourage retailers and exhibitors to embrace change and adapt to new opportunities, Reed Gift Fairs will launch the inaugural Future Retailer seminar series at the September fair. It will address any questions exhibitors might have about the changing retail landscape, and will offer guidance to retailers on how they can innovate to better serve their customers and grow their businesses.
“No matter what product an exhibitor sells or what area they specialise in, they will definitely learn something of value from Future Retailer, which they can then apply to their business,” Soker says. Future Retailer is open to all registered buyers and exhibitors, and will run on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Sydney fair on the exhibition floor at the back of Hall 3. Reservations are not needed.
Reed Gift Fairs attracts buyers across the following categories: Kitchen, Homewares, Jewellery & Fashion, Designer, and Outdoor. Every year exhibitors at Reed Gift Fairs unveil new products and showcase upcoming designs, trends and colours.
