The anticipation was building in our office. Thousands of “stress-less cubes” in orange, black and white were strategically being arranged into our vans, in a Tetris type fashion, ready to be transported to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
Our team were about to take part in one of Australia’s leading Build and Renovating Exhibitions, which brings together hundreds of experts in building, innovation and trade displaying their goods and talent to thousands of eager renovating consumers.
This would be RenoExchange’s first public appearance and we were keen to inform the crowd about how easy it is to use our site to buy, find and sell thousands of renovation and building products.
Hundreds of visitors at our stand entered our competition to win a 27” iMac, a prize that we believe is the ultimate tool to help with your renovation plans! Stay tuned to find out in a couple of weeks as to who the lucky winner will be!
Some of RenoExchange’s fantastic retailers were exhibiting at the show, sharing their expertise and knowledge to thousands of interested builders and renovators.
Stephanie and Barry from Versaline Removable Clotheslines deem themselves Expo veterans. Giving out their best advice for your clothesline needs, whether it was an outdoor space issue or a need to replace the old rusty Hills Hoist, Stephanie and Barry were on hand to help out!

The team at the EcoClassic stand were busy at all hours of the day, giving advice on their 6 star rated energy efficient double glazed doors and windows. A bright blue stand drew in hundreds of interested people looking to build or renovate their homes in an environmentally friendly way.
Coming on board with us when we were still in our foundation stage, the Jetmaster stand directly across from ours drew admiring glances and rosy cheeks all weekend! Featuring nearly a dozen beautiful fireplaces all burning at the one time, Jetmaster was literally on fire!
It was lovely to see some familiar faces at the Expo lending their congratulations and support for our colourful stand. Toni and Michael from Visual Resource popped past to wish the team well. Visual Resource supply and custom make stunning printed splashbacks for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry…really the options are endless! Be sure to see their beautiful products on RenoExchange!
All in all, we had a terrific three days. To cap it off, our debut was made even more memorable having been awarded “Best Stand” for a new exhibitor. The team shared hi-5’s and all excitedly agreed we’d nailed it!
A big thank you must go to Brendan Coustley from Informa and Master Builders for such a successful Expo. We look forward to hopefully being back again next year!
