Attendees were welcomed with a perfect winter’s day as they walked through the impressive cobblestone walls and archway entrance to The Argyle, in the heart of Sydney’s Rocks precinct. Their tickets were scanned by Sprintr Kiosks and badges instantly printed before continuing into the venue.

Exhibitor displays spanned across two levels, with sleek timber flooring, exposed beams and distinctive lighting.
