Guests

Registered visitors may be accompanied by ONE guest to assist on each day. Guests cannot place orders at the fair, and need to be accompanied by a registered visitor at all times while inside the exhibition. The guest is not required to complete a registration form. Instead, they will receive a guest pass upon arrival.

Manufacturers.

Only manufacturers looking to purchase materials for the making of jewellery related products, and can show evidence of purchasing jewellery related products within the last 12 months, will be allowed access to the fair as a visitor.

Wholesalers

Non-exhibiting wholesalers will be allowed access to the fair from 1pm daily, and are not permitted to conduct business on the fair floor (aka suitcasing). Fair Events reserves the right to escort any attendee from the fair floor if they are reported to be soliciting business at the fair, and are not an exhibitor. If you are escorted from the fair, you will not be allowed to attend any future fairs.

Children

Waivers can be obtained from the registration counter, and if approved, a Child’s Pass will be provided to grant limited access to the trade fair floor only. The parent or legal guardian that signed the waiver must accompany the child at all times, and the child must ensure they are wearing the Child’s Pass. If a child is found without parent or legal guardian supervision, he/she will be taken to the registration counter and his/her waiver will be rescinded. Failure of the parent or legal guardian to supervise the minor’s activities may result in removal from the fair. For security reasons, strollers are not permitted at any time within the fair. Babies in arms
(minors one year old and younger) do not need a waiver, but must be carried at all times within the event.

Buyer Power Hours

The Buyer Power Hours run from 9:30am until 1pm and are reserved for retail buyers, manufacturers, students, buying group members, and retailers looking to add jewellery to their range. This initiative allows retailers to focus on sourcing and buying new products, essentially to save time in the afternoon to network and catch up with new and old friends at the fair. From 1pm daily, wholesalers are allowed to enter the fair in order to network with the industry and celebrate with their peers. Wholesalers are not permitted to sell on the fair floor.

WARNING FOR VISITORS: Please be aware there are some overseas website that may claim to have registration facilities for the Australian and International Jewellery Fairs. Completing these online forms may result in your email account being spammed, and will definitely not grant you access to the fair floor.
