The Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA) is throwing its support behind the upcoming Gift HQ and will be participating in the event this July.
AGHA will occupy an area on the show floor where members and non-members can ask questions about best practice and business operations.
Organiser Fair Events managing director, Gary Fitz-Roy, says Gift HQ is a great place for the industry to connect with their association.
“Having the support of the AGHA benefits both Gift HQ exhibitors and visitors as it provides tailored support for professionals on both sides of the industry,” he explains.
“Gift HQ really is the perfect opportunity for the AGHA to connect with its Queensland and northern NSW members and have face-to-face conversations with those who are working in the industry and are seeking further information on membership benefits.”
The gift and homewares market differs in every state and AGHA CEO Wayne Castle is looking forward to see what Queensland has to offer.
“We’re very pleased to be attending Gift HQ in 2017, and are going to make the most of the opportunity to connect with our members and the Queensland market by providing information about the latest business tips and social initiatives,” he says.
“For wholesalers, we can provide the optimum commercial environment in which to succeed; by helping them make money, save money and connect with buyers and for retailers, we can provide them with critical business knowledge, connections, discounts and advice.”
Gift HQ is held from 8 to 10 July at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
