Wow, what a show we’ve seen this year, the support from exhibitors has been fantastic with the show floorspace selling out weeks early. We saw many retailers visit the show and take advantage of the attendance incentive. 

The trade show calendar offered plenty of networking opportunities. The show itself, AFTA’s AGM, Happy Hour and the Gala Dinner & Awards Night, which was the biggest that AFTA has ever seen with 400 people attending for four hours of drinks and socialising. The support from the Victorian Government and Brandscope for the dinner was fantastic.

The incredible sponsorship from the Queensland Government enabled AFTA to offer free entry to all members of the public. The lines were long and at times the hall was packed. 

There’s already plenty of talk for the 2024 show; if you missed it in 2023, start planning now to ensure you don’t do that again!
