An Important Update from Reed Gift Fairs

For most of us the last few months have been a mix of emotions. Last weekend would normally have seen us gathered together in Melbourne, reconnecting with friends and customers and creating new connections. Instead, our thoughts go out to those affected by the current Covid-19 outbreaks.

After monitoring the unfolding situation in NSW and across the country, and in close consultation with both exhibitors and retailers, it has unfortunately become clear that the current circumstances have made it extremely difficult to confidently and safely plan for the upcoming Reed Gift Fairs Melbourne event.

As a result, RX (Reed Exhibitions) has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Reed Gift Fairs Melbourne event planned for the 17-19 September 2021 at the MCEC.

Whilst we understand this is disappointing news for all concerned, our team included, we will instead move forward in the planning for our 2022 events with a vision to reconnect and engage face to face once again.
