Sydney Gift Fair

Australia hosts a number of large trade fairs each year which cover a broad range of industries, services and professions. Of all the annual trade fairs it would be fair to say that the bi-annual Reed Gift Fair and GHA Home and Giving Fair in each of Melbourne and Sydney are the largest and most significant in terms of wholesale exhibitors and retail buyers. The Reed Gift Fair in Sydney and the GHA Gift Fair in Sydney each February are the must see, must visit, trade fairs for shop owners and other retailers selling a broad range of gift style products.

The February Sydney GHA trade show is held concurrently with the Reed Gift Fair and is a leading trade event that brings together industry participants including retailers, wholesalers, agents and distributors. The Reed Gift Fair is located at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour and the GHA Home and Giving Fair is partly located at Darling Harbour but predominantly located at Homebush. GHA runs regular free ferry and bus services from Darling Harbour to Homebush for the duration of the trade fair.

If f you are planning on eating out in the evenings then where possible also book your restaurant table early. This especially the case if you are staying near the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour as many trade fair participants will also be looking to eat out and waiting times at restaurants can be painfully long. There are numerous catering outlets within the GHA and Reed Gift Fairs including food outlets and hot drink vendors.

If you are serious buyer looking for new designs and stock that will sell well, then you should be attending the GHA Home and Giving Fair in Sydney and the Reed Gift Fair at least once every year. While the fairs are held twice each year in Sydney and twice each year in Melbourne the bigger fairs tend to be Sydney in February and Melbourne in August.
