Exhibition puts furnishings in focus
Thursday, October 15, 2015
The Australian Made Campaign will be partnering with leading Australian fabric supplier Warwick Fabrics, to bring the national Furnishing in Focus exhibition to Melbourne again in June 2016.
The trade-only exhibition has gained a high profile among buyers in recent years because it is the only national furniture and furnishing event featuring exclusively Australian-made goods. It promises to offer the biggest selection to be shown under one roof all year.
Visitors from a broad cross-section of furniture-related industries will be introduced to Australia’s top manufacturers and their locally made goods over two big days at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 8-9 June 2016.
Buyers and suppliers will also have the opportunity to network in an informal setting, and awards will celebrate those who have made long-term contributions to the Australian furniture Industry.
Furnishing in Focus Spokesperson John Mackinnon, says the concept has been steadily growing in popularity since it was initiated by Warwick Fabrics back in 2010.
“With fantastic industry support this ‘import-free’ trade show has become a national event, which will expand even further in 2016 to embrace a wide variety of fabric suppliers offering the very latest in furnishing textiles,” Mr Mackinnon said.
“This is a great example of what can be done by an industry prepared to work together.”
“The Australian Made Campaign is proud to support Australia’s manufacturers at Furnishing in Focus 2016,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said.
“This exhibition will showcase the exceptional skills Australia’s furniture and furnishing manufacturers have to offer, increase visibility of the variety that is readily available, and demonstrate how much more flexible buying locally can be.”
