Gift Industry Card Changes

Registering to attend Reed Gift Fairs for 2017 onwards has now changed.

It’s a new year ahead, bringing with it many exciting changes for Reed Gift Fairs including the move to our new Sydney home. One of these changes is the process for buyers to pre-register each year.
 
Moving forwards Gift Industry Cards (GICs) will no longer be issued and will be completely phased out of circulation by 31st December 2017. You will now need to update your registration on an annual basis – giving you access to all fairs for that calendar year.

Registration remains free but is valid for one calendar year only, no matter when in the year you register. (Note: if you register during Oct-Dec of any year, then your registration will automatically roll over into the new year).

BADGES
Badges must be worn and clearly displayed at all times.

Why the change?

Reed Gift Fairs and AGHA Gift Fairs are trade only exhibitions so we need to ensure that only valid, qualified and credible buyers are attending these important industry events. This annual registration process will ensure we have your up to date details and are aware of any changes to your business or employment circumstances so we can keep providing you with up to date information and advice on how to make your fair visit a productive one.

CURRENT GIC CARD HOLDERS

If you have a current GIC it will expire 31st December 2017 and you will need to re-register over the coming months to ensure you have access to all events in 2017.  Here’s what you will need to do…

1. Log-in here with your registered name and your 10-digit ID number found on your GIC card or original confirmation email.  If you are unsure of this number call 02 9211 7544 for assistance or check your emails for communications from our team during November.

2. Let us know which 2017 events you are likely to attend.

3. Check and update your details.
It is important you register with a unique email address (no shared accounts)

4. Upload your business ID/documentation. The usual trade identification must be provided to register for the fair. These include;

  • ABN in print (Australian Companies only)
  • Web address
  • 1 x form of personal business ID, dated within the last 12 months, with your name and the registered business name
  • If you are unsure, a full list of accepted ID is available on the registration page.

5. Create your new password for future access (your username will be your email address).

6. Approximately 2 weeks before each of our fairs we will email you your Print@Home badge. Simply print it out and bring it with you on the day for hassle free entry.
There’s no need to carry your Gift Industry Card with you anymore (if you had one) and no need to line up to scan. Just simply pop your printed badge in a holder available at the door and in you go! But don’t worry, if you happen to forget it or don’t have access to a printer you are also welcome to scan the email on your phone and print it at the fair.

Please Note: Like the previously used GIC, the Print@Home badge gives you access to both Reed Gift Fairs and AGHA Gift Fairs.

Each October you will be sent a reminder email prompting you to log into your account and confirm and/or update your contact details. Once updated this will re-register you for the following calendar year.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

Group Registrations
For the first time we are able to offer Group Registrations for new registrants. If you are an Owner/Director or Manager you are able to create a Group Registration where you may manage up to ten (10) staff registrations. You can add new staff members and remove old staff members who are no longer working at your organisation. Please note that each staff member will need a unique email address so that we can send them their personalised Print@Home badge for each fair.

Prospective Buyers
Reed Gift Fairs will no longer host prospective buyers at our fairs. As a trade only event, without the correct documentation we will not be able to permit entry. Businesses must be trading and operational, so unfortunately if you are still in the process of setting up your business you will have to wait until this has been completed. If you can’t be there in person though, be sure to check out our online exhibitor directory at www.reedgiftfairs.com.au

Guests
As a registered buyer you are entitled to bring ONE (non-industry) guest with you per day (except for the final day of the fair). However in 2018 we will be introducing a Buyers Guest Ticket. Guests will no longer attend for free and a charge of $50 per day will apply with tickets only available to purchase in person on the day by the registered buyer.
In preparation for these new charges we recommend that all legitimate trade attendees register as a buyer with the required documentation to avoid any unnecessary costs.

We know change can be a little daunting so please don’t hesitate to contact our Registration Team on 02 9211 7544 if you have any questions at all. We look forward to seeing you at Reed Gift Fairs in 2017.
