My Guide to the AGHA Sydney Gift Fair 2019

Beautiful products, clever creatives and a first look at the new trends?

It’s all happening this weekend at the AGHA Sydney Gift Fair!

The AGHA Sydney Gift Fair is billed as Australia’s largest industry-led retail trade exhibition and it returns to Sydney Olympic Park 23rd to 26th February with an absolute blockbuster line up.

With tens of thousands of products to explore, thousands of retailers, stylists and professionals in attendance, a new addition of 13 key retail product categories (including smart living, home and interiors, entertaining and dining, outdoor living and more) AND workshops and events… I don’t blame you if you are thinking “where do I start”?!

I’m here to guide you my top picks to explore and enjoy at this year’s event!

Meet Jen Bishop of Interiors Addict

We all love the down to earth cheer leader of creatives, Jen Bishop – founder of the interiors design blog Interiors Addict! Jen will be onsite at the event on Saturday at 2pm in the Hall 4 Bar to answer questions about social media marketing and how to grow a retail business.
