Furnitex (TBA) 2017
June 8, 2017 @ 8:00 AM - June 10, 2017 @ 5:00 PMTBA
Furnitex has formerly formed a huge part of the universal fashion week for furniture. The Aussie furniture festival is always developing, now nearing three decades since its premiere show and continuing to build momentum though the years. The expo presents an opportunity for furniture woodworkers and carpenters to learn where the industry is heading within Australia. It’s also perfect for furniture penchants and hobbyists to learn some craft secrets.
Furnitex 2016 arrived in South East Queensland with a huge team of furniture exhibitors and conference speakers. Among the big names were Nick Xenophon (Independent Senator for SA) Josh Bruzzaniti (CEO Connect Furniture) and Dylan Falecki (from Channel 10’s The Living Room) with scores of other influential figures taking stage.
The Expo has moved from its home in Melbourne, and is expected to return to Brisbane sometime in June 2017. While the furniture, furnishings and accessories trade show has yet to be officially announced for the present year, trade calendars have already begun advertising the event in anticipation. In the past Furnitex has been a parade of grassroots and international furniture talent. Commonly featuring artwork, framing, dining and entertainment furniture as well as seminars and workshops.
The Furnitex Brisbane expo was endorsed by the Queensland government in 2016; establishing the expo as one of the most momentous furniture displays within Australia. While there has been no information released about this year’s show, the Expo has previously allowed key industry manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and suppliers of Australian furniture to congress under one roof.
