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 12-16 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 2020-21 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 April 29th and 30th 2022.  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.

Important Note:

If you have previously registered for the 2021 EXPO that was due to be held in October with dcb events, please note that you have the option to either transfer those funds already paid to the 2022 EXPO or gain a full refund – please contact reconnect@officebrands.com.au for further details.

With regards to vaccination policies for Brisbane events, we are guided by the Queensland Government’s policies as to attendees requirements within their state and venues.

Once we have more information at our disposal, we will update the group as to the requirements and policies from the Queensland Government.

We will be sending out updated registrations links to the EXPO website and will inform you all as soon as it is ready to go !

Look forward to catching up with everyone in April 2022!!!!!

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