The AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair 2017 was a resounding success, having received much positive feedback from both exhibitors and visitors alike.

Signalling that the gifts and homewares industry is robust and booming, qualified buyers flocked to the trade floors to place orders with more than 450 exhibitors from Australia and New Zealand.

Held over five days, 120 new stalls joined the AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair to showcase their contemporary designs, innovative products and all the latest trends.

Stand displays were well received and buyers had much to choose from, with plenty of trending products, bright colours and seasonal retail inspiration in the lead up to Christmas and Spring/Summer of 2018.

Brand new ranges and emerging styles were snapped up across categories such as Australian Made; Body, Bath & Fragrance; Books & Stationery; Ethical; Home Furniture & Interiors; Jewellery, Fashion & Accessories; Kids Toys & Games; and Kitchen & Dining.

AGHA Gift Fairs were also delighted to introduce more than 50 exhibitors to the AGHA Launch Pad – a new platform designed to promote and accelerate the ideas of emerging entrepreneurs.

Many Launch Pad exhibitors were buzzing with excitement that their dreams of operating as a wholesale trader had come to fruition, and gained constructive, first-hand insight into running an entrepreneurial wholesale business.
