The Gifts & Homewares Association (GHA) has rebranded their large February gifts & homewares trade fair as the “Home & Giving” Fair. Its a long established “trade only” event held annually at the Sydney Showgrounds, Homebush NSW and usually has between 600-700 exhibitors.
The exhibitors are mostly Australian manufacturers and importers who mainly sell wholesale only, to gifts & homewares retailers across Australia and the Asia Pacific Region.
A wide range of Retailer categories attend the fair from Representatives of Major Department stores and chain franchise stores, to specialised gift or homewares stores and even party plan vendors. Other retailers come from shops that sell occasional giftware and include Newsagents, souvenir shops,Chemists, furniture and even hardware stores.
A wide range of goods are exhibited at this expo including Furniture, Kitchenware, silk flowers, artworks, mirrors, electrical goods, jewellery & accessories, as well as a very broad range and assortment of Giftware and general homewares products.
The fair opens Saturday 23rd through to 26th February 2008 at the Sydney Showgrounds at Homebush NSW and coincides with a similar gift trade fair event held by Reed Exibitions at Darling Harbour NSW. Visitors usually see both fairs and a free bus and ferry ride between venues is provided for retailers who register at either event.
