Retail Quarter


Are you looking for a different way of sourcing products for your store? Well, you’re in luck with the relaunch of Reed Gifts Fairs September fair.

Now called the Retail Quarter, the revamped show is divided into four ‘quarters’, providing visitors with an enhanced and more relevant shopping experience.

Events director Louisa Theobald says the Retail Quarter promises everything needed to make shopping not only enjoyable, but profitable.

“Retailers have indicated what they are looking for from Reed Gift Fairs Sydney September, and we’ve listened,” explained Theobald.

“A total re-imagination, the Retail Quarter has been designed to offer an exciting new shopping experience to retailers, at one of the busiest times for the industry.”

At Abode you can explore the very latest in interior, furniture, kitchen and dining as well as body, bath and fragrance, while Galleria covers an eclectic collection of gift, stationery, kids’ toys and games. Boutique is all about Australian-made, ethical, handcrafted and artisanal brands, and Runway promises opulence, indulgence and glamour with the latest must-haves in fashion, jewellery and accessories.

The Business of Christmas education sessions will help retailers plan for one of their busiest periods. Industry experts will discuss topics such as social media planning and design-led trend forecasting, to immersive hands-on workshops to plan your best Christmas window display yet.

For those looking for some time out between shopping there is the Tapas Bar located in the centre of the show floor to relax and have a bite to eat.

Retail Quarter is held from 23 to 26 September at the ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.
