My Guide to the AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair 2019

If you’re in the retail industry, there’s one event on the Melbourne calendar that you can’t afford to miss.

It is of course the AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair, and the 2019 edition starts this Saturday!

The Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA), has been delivering Australia’s largest industry-led retail gift and homewares trade exhibition for more than 40 years, with its annual Sydney and Melbourne events continuing to attract tens of thousands of retail buyers who are eager to discover new brands, new products, new connections and experience a jam-packed few days of inspiration.

The AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair 2019 is just days away, Saturday 3rd to Wednesday 7th August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and I am so excited to be presenting two free Masterclasses for attendees all about Building an Online Brand!

With tens of thousands of products for you to explore, thousands of exhibitors – many who are showcasing for the first time! – and a special free series of Masterclasses, I’m breaking it down to the must-see and must-do features of this year’s event! Read on…
