Furnishing in Focus
Friday, June 10, 2016
The Australian Made Campaign (AMCL) was proud to be a supporter of the Furnishing in Focus exhibition for 2016.
Presented by Australian Made licensee Warwick Fabrics, the event featured the biggest selection of locally produced furnishing designs and was free of imported furniture product.
The trade-only show at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre gave manufacturers a great opportunity to promote their Australian-made products in a relevant environment.
Networking events and promotional activities were also held over the two day event which allowed exhibitors to develop relationships with buyers and build up their contact base.
The Australian Made Campaign was also on hand to discuss the Australian Made logo with local manufacturers. The logo also featured prominently at the exhibition with a number of Australian Made licensees taking part in the event.
“The Australian Made Campaign has been proud to support the Furnishing in Focus event again for 2016,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said.
“The exhibition is a great chance for furniture and furnishing manufacturers to show off their genuine Aussie products and demonstrate the benefits of buying locally.“
One of the highlights of the event was the announcement of the annual ‘Vice Award’ which acknowledges someone who has made a long term contribution to the Australian Furniture Industry. This year the award went to Carol Arnold from Dankz Furniture.
