Reflecting on 2019’s Expo theme “Think Differently”, we take into consideration the importance of this message, now more than ever for our business and industry moving forward.

The last 12 months have been challenging for all, both in a personal and professional capacity. During the time, I do not think anyone could have imagined the impact that 2020 would have on the world.

Although our products and categories remain the same, we have been forced into a real disconnect due to the COVID pandemic and how we go about our daily activities and habits.

The way we conduct business has changed, the way we interact with our friends and family have changed, the way we live life has changed.

You have seen the changes we have had to make to adapt here at Office Brands firsthand. We changed our business model to best engage with you, our valued members, and suppliers.

All that being said, it is now time to “Reconnect” with each other. It will have been two long years since the Office Brands family have all had the opportunity to be together and after such a long absence.

It is time for us all to join as one and reconnect with our friends, colleagues, and suppliers.

Reconnecting is not just about being present with each other, but re-establishing bonds of communication, resources and helping one another reach our highest potential for better business success.

Not only do we continue to Think Differently, but we continue to strive forward as Australia’s largest and leading Independent business supplies dealer group.

We know that networking and interaction are important for all and this is a great reason why you should join us in Brisbane on October 8th and 9th. You will find that the EXPO is different this year compared to the previous EXPO’s and this is designed to allow you to all to spend valuable time with both your fellow Office Brands members and suppliers.


This is an amazing opportunity to Reconnect and find out how we can work together in this new world.
