Join Vend for the very first Australian Pitchfest in Sydney, 25 February


Here at Vend, we love innovation. It’s the thing that sparked our founder, Vaughan’s journey into the world of retail. It’s also something that drives us forward everyday, inspiring our team to keep solving retail woes in creative ways. Without innovation, there would be no Vend.

So, understandably, we are so unbelievably excited to be bringing the first Innovation Pitchfest to Australian shores sponsored by Tchibo.

What is an Innovation Pitchfest, you ask?

These are a series of events that have taken the world by storm; allowing creators, innovators and groundbreakers to turn their ideas into realities.

The inaugural Sydney event is all about retail and is an opportunity for Australian creators to showcase their visions for a brand new product to the world, as well as be in to win some pretty incredible prizes.

Vend is the official sponsor of the People’s Choice Award, so while submissions may have already closed for entering the Innovation Pitchfest, you can still be a part of the fun by having your say in voting! Just pop into see us at the Retail Hub at the Reed Gift Fair on 20-24 February to pick your favorite contestant.

Plus, with the hall packed out and overflowing with talent, it’ll be impossible not to walk away with some inspiration for your own business.

All the details:
