2020 MELBOURNE BEAD EXPO - CANCELLED
CANCELLED FOR 2020
We regret to inform you that the Bead Society of Victoria is cancelling the 2020 Melbourne Bead Expo.
With so much uncertainty still in place regarding large gatherings, we feel it is only appropriate that we give our traders enough notice, that we will not be holding the event this year.
This decision has not been made lightly. We know that there are many beaders who look forward to our event each year, catching up with traders and purchasing bead supplies.
As such, we are looking at some other 'online' activities that we are happy to facilitate for our traders, in lieu of an in person expo experience. Details on this are being worked on at the moment, but we imagine it will be an online market place/Facebook page for all traders to promote, which we then promote to our beading people.
We will still be holding our annual competitions, and looking at how we can best promote and display those, with the restrictions we are working with at the moment, and what they might be in a few months time.
Most of all though, I thank you for your ongoing support of the Bead Society of Victoria, and our Melbourne Bead Expo and I look forward to the day that we can all gather together again and marvel at the world of beads.
