Our abcd Sydney summer meet-up at Life Instyle is on next week… have you saved the date? Steph (from Bondville) and I love organising these get togethers and if you blog about design, art or craft – yours or other people’s work – we’d love you to come along. Our meet-ups are always a fun and enriching experience and a wonderful way for us to create a sense of a community.
We are excited about this event because our abcd group will have the opportunity to browse Life Instyle on opening night with a glass of bubbles in hand. Life Instyle, which includes Kids Instyle and First Instyle, is a trade-only event open to retailers, exhibitors and media. As part of the abcd meet-up group you’ll receive an entry pass and be able to check out all the latest trends in homewares, accessories, lifestyle and kids products. Be prepared to be overwhelmed and inspired by all the local talent and wonderful new products – it’s all great new content for your blog posts too!
After the show we’re heading to PJ Gallagher’s just across the way for a debrief and a panel discussion which will include tips and advice on trade shows and wholesaling. We will be joined by some of our fave Life Instyle exhibitors: Jane and Katy from Katy Jane Designs; Sally from Scoops, and Tess and Anna from Polli, who have generously agreed to come along and chat to the group and demystify trade shows and wholesaling for us.
Thursday 21st February 2013

It sounds like so much fun doesn’t it? I’m so looking forward to it and we’d love to see you there. If you’re unable to make it to the show, you can always join us afterwards at PJ Gallagher’s.
