Are you planning on going to the Sydney gift fair later this month?

A supplier contacted me yesterday asking if I could pose this question here. So, are you planning to attend?

    We are in WA and won’t be attending. Considering Melbourne more closely but even that we are unsure of. At least 1 of our team has gone to all Melbourne/SYdney trade fairs for past 29 years so it’s strange not doing them. I must admit I find it so much more time consuming doing new release orders without the fair having to visit the different show rooms separately.

    No, not going. There are too few suppliers there.

    Yes we will be supporting those suppliers attending this year. We find it much easier to browse by physically attending such events. We are fortunate in that our attendance is not threatened by state border closures or the whims of our political leaders.

    No from Adelaide. Nothing to do with covid. We made the decision to only attend Melbourne in future. Sydney no longer good value.

    Yes. Sydney is a must for NSW ACT newsagents altough Victoria has one that should not be ignored. I belive both are essential especially for newcomers to the industry.
