Brisbane Trade Day

Brisbane Trade Day is a great chance to visit horticultural traders of plants and services of exceptional quality. This is a TRADE ONLY event available to bona fide horticultural businesses.

Brisbane Trade Day is the ideal opportunity to see quality products, wander through the displays or sit back and enjoy breakfast with industry.

There are over 500 registered buyers including retail nurseries, hardware stores, landscapers, florists and allied traders. Approximately 40 dedicated standholders travel from around Southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales to participate in each Trade Day. Stock ranges from potted colour, seedlings, fruit trees, garden décor and accessories.

A monthly availability list is sent to all registered standholders & buyers during the week of each Trade Day.

In August due to EKKA we take Trade Day on the road to Nambour.

Casual stands are available at $180 but spaces are limited so it’s first in, first served. If a permanent standholder is unable to attend one month, their stand will be offered to casual standholders.
