It’s still the beginning of the year, so stay ahead of it, and buy all the gifts you need for 2012! At the Reed Gift Fair, stock up for the all the birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. With every present stored away, you’ll soon be running out of hiding places.
Five times a year, the Reed Gift Fair sets up shop in Australia, and February is the lucky month for Melbourne. Representing the largest trade fair brand in the country, these gift gurus choose the highest quality vendors to bring in the best of home wares, jewelry, clothing, outdoor goods, kids’ gifts, and more. In one fell swoop, pick up a freshwater pearl necklace for your mother, a decorative vase for the dining table, and a few stuffed animals for the kiddies. And for you? Well, good luck buying only one thing for yourself!
Many gift stores use this presentapalooza to purchase their merchandise for the year. So if you want to get your handiwork on the retail shelves (or in the bags of fair attendees) at any of the other exhibits, apply online to become an exhibitor. If you’re still working on your business model and marketing campaign, the folks at Reed have kits and videos to instruct you how to lure gift seekers to your table.
So block off 4-7 February, and head to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibit Centre – you have lots of shopping to do!
