Furnitex wrap up

Just wanted to share our experience on our first big expo. So, a couple of weeks ago we attended Furnitex, one of Melbourne's largest furniture expos, mainly targeted at designers and retailers looking for new products. Its always hard to know how these things are going to go, so I thought I'd share our experience for anyone else looking to attend an expo. Well, while it was exhausting, talking to all the visitors was quite exhilarating. It was great to know that we were on the mark when it comes to people looking for eco-friendly, durable furniture. The first day we had lots of on-the-spot-sales, and the three days after that it was more a steady stream of enquiries. But what we have been really pleased about is the number of enquiries and sales from architects, project managers and designers post the event. Definitely, worth the stall fee (eye-watering expensive!) in the end. Just wanted to share for anyone else in the furniture/giftware business.
