In a strategic move to strengthen the Home & Giving Fairs and to support more wholesalers and retailers, the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA) has officially acquired Fashion Exposed. The dedicated fashion trade event, previously owned and managed by Informa Exhibitions, has brought together the fashion industry to seek and discover the latest apparel, footwear and accessories over the last 14 years.
“The acquisition adds massive value to our Sydney Home & Giving Fair which is now the largest and most comprehensive gift, homewares and fashion event in Sydney,” said AGHA executive general manager, Omer Soker.
Housed in massive 32,000 square metres at Sydney Olympic Park, Fashion Expose will occupy the new Halls 5 and 6 which will be connected to the Home & Giving Fair and run alongside the existing Fashion & Jewellery segment via two internal visitor traffic thoroughfares and with its own entry for buyers.
The acquisition of Fashion Exposed by AGHA is a groundbreaking move that will meet the growing demands of the industry, to provide an all-encompassing event. Managing director of Informa Exhibitions, Harvey Stockbridge reveals that “the challenging environment over the past few years has generated a need for retailers to diversify their in-store product offering and create a show that provides the industry with a ‘one-stop-shop’. This new feature to the Home & Giving Fair will offer a unique opportunity for buyers to access a more comprehensive and diverse range of products, all under one roof.
The upcoming Home & Giving Fair featuring Fashion Exposed will be held from 21-24 February 2015 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. For enquiries contact Lucia Ordenes-Sanchez on firstname.lastname@example.org.
