A LETTER FROM THE MD WITH THE COUNTRY UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT IT SEEMS SOME THINGS ARE LOOKING UP! Australia has enjoyed the best retail figures in years over the past Christmas season. I am hopeful we can continue to build on this, although I am sure some challenges lie ahead. This year’s Queensland fair returns to its original home on the Gold Coast, and we are excited about what will be on show! With a raft of NEW companies and products, the fair has something for everyone. Our popular Spotlight Learning Exchange will have experts in their field passing on their very best business tips. It’s all FREE and right on the fair floor. As an added benefit you can make a brief appointment to receive one-on-one advice in our ‘Ask the Experts’ area.
